so ive had some 15" magnum 500s on order now since august and they have been placed on back order 3 times now. the next "anticipated" delivery date is feb28th, 2018. i have all the parts needed to finish my maverick sitting in my garage but cant use any of them until i get the 15" wheels on it. the 5 lug conversion is on hold...i have the new rear. the disc brake conversion is sitting in the garage. cant put it on without 5 lugs and 15" wheels. the 347...transmission....gear vendors overdrive is waiting. sure i could go ahead with this, but with all that power and torque, the factory rear would get shredded. i understand that back orders happen, but what makes me the most aggravated is that jegs, coker tire, wheels vintique, cj ponycars and a few others are STILL taking orders and holding people up by making out that these wheels are available. just makes me mad. if im held up, im sure there are others. and yes ive called around and every company that ive seen that sales these chrome 15" magnums get the wheels made by the same company. i also called that exact company a few weeks ago that makes them. iirc it was the people at coker. i was told they are having problems with chrome plating and that they didnt know when it would be fixed. he seemed upfront after i told him my wait time already and just asked him to tell me the truth. sure i could go with another wheel, but as sure as i get another set, then these will be ready to go, then im stuck with a look i dont like. come on!!! stop taking orders until you get your crap together!!! end of rant!
