I would second this. DTD may be better than the local DT store I went to and while I did get a good deal initially, it wasn't worth the hassle and added costs. Spent over 2k on wheels tires, ordered everything and was exact on what I wanted done. Even paid 2 weeks before the work was done when I ordered.
First off, I have no idea what the meanings were on their invoice. I asked for specific items and everything was listed generically on the invoice. For instance I ordered 17x9 Ultra Crusher wheels and their invoice said another brand of wheel 17x8.5. I was assured the Crushers where order and that part worked out. Crushers it was. The only specific item on the invoice was my duratrac s.
I ordered black gorilla lugs and lug locks. I'm rolling around now with chrome gorilla lugs no locks. They started to argue with me that it didn't say black on the invoice... Everything was generic as I said before and I was assured that was correct before i walked out after ordering and paying 2 weeks earlier. (I went over the invoice with the manager or guy that helped me because I was concerned the invoice was so generic.) Finally they locate black lugs (no locks) from gorilla with my name on them in the box, they didn't fit of course. I'm told they will order the right ones but I'm a little skeptical... Ill keep calling.
They "don't make hub rings" in 71.5mm hub 78mm bore I was told for the crushers. Bull, I found them online in 2 seconds... So my included hub rings weren't included. Plus $50 for me having to order hub rings that don't exist.
The tires the tpms came out of we're suppose to be rebalanced and they weren't I was told. This may be fine as I understand they just pop the one part off the tire to remove them... Fact was though when I ordered I was specific that's what I wanted done and as far as I know paid for it. The excuse was they were slammed that morning. They had my Jeep for 8a - 5:30p... So slammed in the am or not, I dropped the Jk off and they had it all day.
So, while my experience may be unique it goes with saying, you get what you pay for. Next purchase will be local mom and pop.
