I had something similar happen to me a few weeks ago. I apparently hit
something on the freeway which I never saw, but which caused a blowout
in my left rear tire. Whatever it was also punched a dime-sized hole in
the stock aluminum wheel. I spent the better part of a day calling every
junkyard in town (and there are quite a few of them) trying to track a
used wheel down. I never realized that stock CRX wheels were so scarce.
Wound up ordering one from one of the two places I found on the net
which claimed to have the wheel in question in stock, but after almost a
week, when I called to get a tracking number for the package, they
hemmed and hawed and finally admitted that they hadn't shipped it, and
they'd have to refund my payment as the wheel they had "didn't meet
their quality standards". I was pretty PO'd after having wasted a week
with these guys, and wondered why they hadn't mentioned this at the time
I placed my order. Fortunately, the other place I located turned out to
actually have the wheel in stock, and it arrived when promised.
Yeah, I ordered a front combination light, two of those little bump stops,
and two of the springs that go under them. They shipped the light and the
springs, with an email notifying me the bump stops were out of production
sent too late to stop the order. Now what am I going to do with two $2
Still recommend the guys, though. They've got a lot of stuff. We've got a
junk yard here I should have checked out long ago. Just thought I'd try for
new parts first.
