Joey,joey said:I have probably visited over 200 wheel sites in the past 2 months. I think one or two provided the necessary info to make an informed decision, without having to call the company.
Every wheel site should have the minimum information.
Your website has width and price. Since you don't publish the bolt pattern, we have to assume it is 5x115, which is a risky business. Too many sites advertise wheels for the 300, but the bolt pattern is the incorrect 5x114.3, or the offset is out of spec at 40, or thereabouts.
Weight is also a big deal for many folks. Probably 2% of the sites publish weight.
It would be nice if your site could add more information about the wheels.
It is really unfortunate it is so difficult to get important info about the wheels. There are a few good sites out there that provide everything but weight. Bigwheels.net is probably one of the best-of-breed wheel sites, IMO. They publish everything, except weight. Can't say if their customer service is any good, but the website has everything else. Just mentioning this site to help show what really works when trying to make an informed buying decision.Avon Custom Wheels said:Joey,
Building and running an online wheel business isn't as easy as you might think. First of all the information you would like me to provide is not always provided to me, and when you inquire about getting additional information from the wheel manufacturers you seldmon get it, or they do not want to give it up for some reason. We are in the process of adding a RWD section for the 300's, Magnums & Chargers. And as a personel note, anyone that has dealt with us knows that they would never get a wheel & tire package that wouldn't fit what they were trying to put it on. We by no means profess to be wheel gods but we check & double check every fitment we sell. We are in this for the long haul and customer satisfaction is our highest priority.
Hey Ernie-Avon Custom Wheels said:Hey Danny,
Thanks for the kind words, I didn't realize you were a member also. We are doing really well with the Chrysler 300 accessories. We are trying to sell some items that are fairly exclusive to us as well as customizing the 300C's, Magnums, and Charger with lambo doors, VIP bodykits etc. We are also now doing tinted and painted tailights. Since I also own a bodyshop it just made sense to add this to the custom side of the business. Hey when you get a chance if you could fax me a list of RWD wheels for the 300 / Magnum / Charger I want to expand the wheel choices on my site. Make sure you can get me images for whatever wheels you fax me. We'll be in touch, hopefully for the 22's for that charger this morning.

Danny, The custom wheel business is getting harder & harder every day. The only thing customers care about is the price! Sure thats important but whatever happened to customer service? I've got guys around me that do not even have the equipment to mount & balance but they call themselves custom wheel shops. I've got their customers coming to me to fix balance problems that they have no way of fixing themselves since they have no equipment. All they do is pick up the phone and have the already mounted rims & tires delivered to their door. I'm loosing a ton of business because I'm sure they are adding $100 or $200 markup. Thats pretty good for a phone call. Life is good until you have a problem. Then they all fine [email protected] Avon Custom Wheels to fix the problems. I went along with it for awhile but not anymore. For now on if we didn't sell the package we are not going to get involved. Maybe that will stop the people in my area from using these so called " wheel shops ". Anyway thanks for having my back and you know that engine cover I have up on my site is in your color Inferno Red !!!oneredmagnum said:I agree that Bigwheels.com is a good website but you should question tire sizes on that site....Ernie and I have been in the Wheel business for years....which means years of "On Hand" experience....Ernie has been known for Custom Jobs and crazy applications....if he knows anything it's tire sizes and if he doesn't know I'm here to help him as well...
Try to put different vehicles in Bigwheels.com application guide and see what tire sizes they give you...on some applications they give you a wheel but no tire size???? What's that about??? they either know or don't know....also look at the offsets on the application they give you...every wheel has a different offset and are often given on applications that will make your car/truck look like a roller skate.....
I rather deal with someone who has actual pictures....hands on experience and GREAT customer service....
