Default Race Tech Forged Owes Me $5000

The short and sweet.
- Purchased a set of wheels for my '12 Turbo Centre Lock.
- They arrived (after a long delay).
- They didn't fit (hub too narrow so they were loose despite torquing CL nut down to spec).
- Raz was very apologetic, told me to send them back
- I sent them back AT MY OWN EXPENSE
- They didn't refund the money, despite multiple calls and emails (kept giving me the run around saying that they issued the refund to my visa, but this was a lie, never saw a dime)
- I live in Canada, they are in California, basically impossible for me to recoup the money by legal means.

So buyer beware!!!

Call visa. They will get the money back. Tell them you don't have the rims.

Yes, visa can fix this for you.
They advertise on here continually, maybe ask a mod to get involved.

I called Visa when the wheels were 2 months late and put a dispute on the charge. Race Tech Forged then sent the wheels and provided proof to Visa that they were sent. Visa subsequently reversed their refund to me and re-payed Race Tech Forged. Now this is the amazing part..... there is some Visa no reason policy that they won't open up a second dispute for the same purchase. I had some very colourful conversations with Visa about how absurd this is but got nowhere. Visa refuses to help any further. I'm fooked.

Sorry to hear this. I hope you are able to get your money back. Thanks for posting your experience with RTF. I was considering a new wheel set for my '08 TT and RTF *was* one of the vendors I was considering. Not anymore.

Wow... I was looking at those wheels too. All the crazy discounts and sales, etc made it seem like a good deal, maybe too good. I'm off to HRE FF01, ADVAN, or BBS I guess.

Also, definately call the CC immediately so they refund your money and then have their legal Dep. chase RaceTechForged so you don't have to.

At least someone actually used them on the track. Every single picture they've posted here have been hard parked cars on the street with street tires on them....maybe 1-2 auto-x pictures.

I believe that was the reservation of most when they started advertising her was they had no real world track testing data to back up their claims.
