So I have already ordered the screen accurate centerline rims that many have referred to in their builds and have been waiting for them to get made and delivered, but just received an email that they abruptly closed the business down and all orders will not be fulfilled. This is majorly disappointing. rumor is they might get bought out but the process could take months....so now I am trying to find some wheels for my build so I can continue to dial in the body mounting and heights etc....

anyone have non-centerline, reasonably screen accurate wheels they could direct me to?

I ordered some wheels from Centerline back in late October. They have been constantly adjusting their story as to why they cannot deliver them.

Would love to see the email you received, as I got no notice. Only heard a rumor and started digging around to see what the Internet was saying. Does not sound good that my wheels are never going to arrive or a refund to be given.

the email I received was via Jegs, where I placed the order through:

Hello,

Thank you for placing your order with Jegs.

We regret to inform you that Centerline Wheels has ceased all operations as of April 2017. They are no longer able to fulfill any orders already placed.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Jegs does offer many other brands of wheels that can be found at www.jegs.com or you may call (800) 345-4545 extension 480, to speak with a JEGS technician for assistance in finding an equivalent part. International customers, please call (614) 294-5050.


JEGS Customer Care


-----------------------

I called to follow up and they confirmed that it was true, and said they heard it would be bought out and be back in many months....I called Centerline and went through the phone tree to sales/customer service and it doesnt even ring once I get to that option...

I called Summit Racing and they said they were unaware of centerline closing, but said their delivery times would be mid august if I ordered right now, and the price went WAY up....(378$ for one rear wheel is now like 608$)

I am scrambling as it is hard to find something with the specific specs I need for my bolt circle and tires for the build, let alone the look...hoping to come across something soon....

That is a good deal for you.

I ordered and paid direct from Centerline. Custom backspacing. Ordering through a third party like Jegs or Summit people will get a refund. On the custom orders, not so lucky dealing with the actual manufacturer.
