True or false?
This is completely false. The bearing wear out faster when using negative offset alloys (the ones that protrude out of the vehicle body) and not with 0 offset alloys. Also the steel rims do not flex. If they did, they would crack.

By the way, are they giving you Waxoyl treatment & underbody coating for free? They should give you that free at least if they're not giving anything else.
Suman,

thanks for the info. I feel like a kid with the sort of info that you provide. I havent even heard about Waxoyl treatment & underbody coating. so never asked either. will ask them for sure. thanks again.
