" [QUOTE=HRE_Wheels;560609][FONT=century gothic]No, no need to apologize. This is a public forum - as such, you are entitled to your opinion. Whether its construed to be rude or not, is subjective.
Yes, it might sound lame, but these wheels were indeed designed in San Diego after all. But for the consumer, we can assure you it's more than just spending $3k for a set of HRE center caps.
And yes. These wheels are made in Japan. We're sorry if we've been ambiguous about this but we have certainly not been hiding this fact; we've often promoted it as such, "Designed in San Diego, made in Japan".
We also apologize if we have seemed to be intentionally misleading customers - that is certainly not the case. We can assure you we've personally made the effort to inform every FlowForm inquirer of the fact that these wheels are being produced to the utmost quality standards by one of the absolute, best
wheel manufacturers in the world, located in Japan.
As for your remark about these wheels being identical in quality to said companies is, in our honest opinion, arguable...but that's for another post and another day
