    It sucks because Ralph is a really cool guy. I knew him through a good friend who did a lot importing of parts/wheels from Japan with Ralph. He did work for me and it was perfect about 2 years ago. At the time I was local in Southern California so that probably helped.

    I know he was going through a lot of personal stuff. He still owes my friend $1,000. Nobody I know can get in touch with him. He deleted his facebook I believe, or maybe just deleted me anyways haha. I had his old phone # but that doesn't work anymore. I don't have his address anymore either.

    Hopefully he makes it right with you and everyone else. He's a good dude just going through some shit, but that's no excuse. He was the pioneer in rebarrelling wheels for hondas for sure.

    Word! He was known for alot of shit but this is def not one of them!! The addresses that I posted are the old addys! Right now I don't know what to do. And yea from how he sounded he was or is going through some shit. Alot of people also told me that was to kill this guy right her....

    Damn, that sucks. Back when I wanted to rebuild something I got a quote from him but I decided to just buy new wheels instead. Harsh truth but looks like you wont be getting your wheels back man.

    Know anybody with a Public Data account? I think it's worth a shot to call local authorities. Just because you don't live there doesn't mean a potential crime hasn't been committed.

    sounds like he went in over his head. tried creating a "business" with no security for either himself or his clients, and now, unfortunately, youre paying the price. best of luck in getting your wheels back; if he truly is a stand up guy, then maybe he'll make things right when hes able to stand up on his own two again (pun intended)

    Thanks to that spamming bitch I saw this thread.

    This is pretty bad, didn't Ralph at one point run RB and RB turn into VR? Or am I getting that confused with someone else that ran RB? If so, contact Jack at VR, he's cool as hell and will definitely point you in the right direction.

    Word!!! I got contacted from guy on another forums who google Ralph wright and found this thread! He's in the same situation as all of us and he says he knows where he lives but he lives in a gated sub division. I don't give a fuck what Ralph is going thru! Don't fuck me bc he himself is getting fucked!!!

    Ill try to call the person who contacted me to get an addy to his subdivision so more people can track this guy! I just want my fucking wheels back !!!!:(

    Wheel builders seem to have all the same personality traits.

    They get in over their head way to quick.

    Which is why I still don't take on more than 2 builds at once.

    yea tell me about it. its been a pain in my ass from start to semi finish. i dont really even know who to trust with wheels anymore =/. i want to sell these wheels but in a way i dont want to because i waited so long. But the problem is, that this guy tried to use a 40 bolt hole outer barrel with a 45 bolt hole face and inner barrel. he drilled some of the faces to 40 hole and not the inner barrel. So im going to take all the inner barrels and get ALL the holes welded up completely and grinded down. From there i will line up the face and outer barrel and mark off 40 new holes to be drilled. Then have the wheels sealed back up!

    so i still have to put some work into these wheels.

    Damn, too bad you're not closer to me in Canada I could take on all that stuff!

    what exactly wasn't 100% on them, the polished finish?

    Well the wheels are chrome lol but I got a full set of wheels with gold bolts and caps . It's that issues about trying to fit a bolt hole lip to a 45 bolt hole face and inner barrel. I have to weld all the holes up in the inner barrel...

    Well I kinda explained it in my previous post !
