How bad is the crack? I have a crack in my rear rim and have been riding with it for like 6 months. Been keeping a close eye on it but it has not grown any so I still ride every weekend or so. If its not too bad take a fine tip permanent marker and put a little line right at the edge of it. Go ride for an hour or so and look again. If it stayed the same MOTO ON!!

When I ordered my wheels from motosport it had a disclaimer that they would ship ground and the invoice said when they would arrive. Now the fed-x tracking was wrong. It kept changing for whatever reason. The day it arrived was the day on my motosport invoice. I figured that ground shipping from Oregon (or wherever MS is) to south carolina would take more than 2 or 3 days like the fedx tracking said.

My Fedex driver is great! I think her shorts may not be in compliance with policy standards but I'm not complaining. This is Las Vegas after all. She looks to be maybe late 30's or early 40's and is really attractive. She is in supreme physical condition probably from all the running around and box lifting. My UPS driver...well he sucks!

It must just be based on location...the UPS guys around here rock!! :excuseme:

I always get everything when I'm suppose to, right on time. I just ordered a bunch of stuff from Rocky Mountain (including 2 SETS of Tie downs for $1.99/set :excuseme: ) and it got here yesterday, a day before it was suppose to arrive. :confused:

But that's just me....here's to hoping your wheel shows up tomorrow! :sweden:

(FWIW, my buddy cracked his rim once and threw some JB Weld on it. It held up for a few months before he replaced the rim just because...then again, we mainly race harescrambles so yea...if all you're doing is trail riding, you should be ok...)

Stick with USPS. Fedex and UPS haven't been good for me... Due to borkerage charges they charge me when I order stuff from the states and want to get it to Canada. USPS doesn't charge those, and they have decent delivery time.

Anyway, I hope you get your parts soon, so you can get out riding :confused:

Could it be time to order one cheap item off ebay each day and have it FedEx'd?

In case you are unaware, Motosport is located in Portland OR area, which is in the Pacific NW. For your product to get to you (in the carolina's), it needs to traverse the Rocky Mountains, and they're no treat right now-weather's been sketchy and snow storms popping up with blizzard conditions.

Fedex has no control over when MT passes are closed due to dangerous road conditions. Another thing to consider is many western states allow them to pull triple trailers when conditions are good, but when things turn bad they are limited to only 2 trailers. This means it takes 3 trucks to do the same amount of work instead of 2. Now factor in that there is also major flooding in the southern areas of IL, IN and OH, and you have another bottleneck that freight must work around.

If you really needed the item by a certain deadline, you should have chosen to pay the airfreight charges.

Or you could have ordered from the TT store and it would have come across I-40, which is fairly snow free in the winter.
