    Interesting Email i recieved regarding ADV.1

    There's alot of rumors in the industry about us so we wanted to explain this mystery to our customers and competitors the facts on this months update...

    The facts:
    -896 sets of wheels delivered and on the road since September 2009 (only 1 year ago)
    -Out of those 896 sets of wheels, not 1 unresolved issue or complaint can be found
    -Nearly every reputable large and small retail Dealer in the US and Internationally stands behind us and trusts us to deliver a quality product to their customers
    -The company was built from literally nothing and in 1 year produced over $4 Million dollars in gross sales despite the entire industry being against us

    The bottom line is that company's do not succeed like this by ripping people off, supplying a low quality product, or not practicing good business ethics, period. Our competitors try their best to make people think otherwise in an effort to make sales instead of focusing on making their brand better and adapting to the changing market.

    The questions:
    Q: What's the association between ADV.1 and 360 Forged?
    A: Jordan's old company, long story but in short it blew up too fast with no preparation or planning, no experience and overall combination of everything bad that can happen to a new business. Long version:
    http://www.secretentourage.com/succe...dan-swerdloff/

    Q: Does Jordan / 360 or ADV.1 still owe people money from 360's fall out?
    A: Absolutely not, and he's publicly stated repeatedly "If anyone claims that I do, call or come by any time and if the claim is legitimate we'll go to the bank together on the spot". The reason such a bold statement is made is because 360 was sold for the amount needed to fill every open order and / or refund owed and he made sure that this was done instead of walking away with a substantial cash payment. The offer still stands, our phone number and address is below.

    Q: So what's the entire story behind it all?
    A: The full story is explained in detail in this interview, should anyone want verification on anything feel free to call any time, we can conference call anyone in question, in fact we'd be happy to:

    I went on to read the more indepth "long version" and i assume people will still associate him with bad management. So far not too much "badness" towards ADV.1 or i may be missing them

    Late spin due to bad press. If they haven't done anything wrong, why did Internet Brands kick them off?

    Why all the bad press?

    Why does everyone run away from 360 forged?

    Why all the names changes?

    Here are their "Monotec" forged wheels. Some of those designs look familiar?

    Here are their cheaper cast wheels. This design look familiar?

    These wheels cost like $1000 a set. ADV.1 charges like $3k for them.

    Just sayin'.

    If they aren't forged it's comparing apples to oranges. Design being a separate issue although I feel Advan does common designs with a little more 'edge' to them. 360 Forged made great wheels, but the trick was getting a set the way you ordered them or at all. I did a lot of research on them before I decided on my Modulare's so if someone doesn't fill you in Sticky I can pull it up tonight, but it boils down to business Partner A wasn't ready for his wheels to be liked so well and oversold what he could produce and then proceeded to spend a lot of money he hadn't actually provided a good for. Partner B says (believably so) that he didn't know it was happening at all and has totally cut all ties with Partner A with the new business.

    adv1 was the same owner as 360 forged. 360 forged started getting bad press because people wouldn't get their wheels, if they did they were messed up with lots of imperfections, the lips were bad, etc. they blew up and died just as fast. the only reason why i think thier still in business is because they a CNC machine and produce wheels for other companies just like COR wheels does

    to be 100% with you guys out of all the wheel companies down here ISS Forged is the one i trust most and i feel is the best one. the owner of ISS Forged really isn't in the business to make money like everyone else he is in the business because he enjoys it...money comes second to him. Great guy! really down to earth.
