You guys don't know that phrase? It's like, it's unfortunate to be you. "It sucks to be you" basically.

Lifetime warranty... Does that mean when they hit the discard thickness they replace them, or they're covered against warping/pitting until they wear out?

Yeah they messed up my bolt locations and refuse to do anything about it. They might send me some tool to elongate the holes but it's still bullshit.

Trust me I did. I threatened to withdraw my payment to them and they said they'd send a tool to fix it. They blame it on ford for using some oversized calipers on select rangers.

nah ill go with 35s still. 4.56s will turn them just fine and the rpms will stay lower at highway speeds, which is a problem i have now with my tire/gear setup. my highway rpms are too damn high!
