Buyer beware 911 motorsport wheels

Please be advised when doing business with Patrick Knowles at 911 Motorsport Wheels & Tires Inc. I spent just over $5,000 on wheels with him and he never delivered them. I have spent the past few weeks trying to get in contact with him. He ignores all my calls and texts. I have not received a refund nor do I think I ever will.

I hope you paid with a credit card. Someone on Rennlist had a similar experience. For 5 grand I would contact attorney general's office. Good luck.

Aftermarket wheels seem to be the one of the shadiest areas of modding. Expensive, too. I would only be comfortable with a handful of companies, like HRE, CCW, Forgeline, BBS, etc. Maybe that's not fair to the new upstart firms, but it just seems like people get burned so easy with small "custom" wheel companies.

Sad that someone would do this obviously he's not a true car guy.

Hey man it happens , I guess that happens when you give everyone the benefit of a doubt and hope they will conduct business the same way as you would personally . Unfortunately it happens in business , that is stumbling across total f*** faces like him . I think it's safe to say it has happened to everyone at least once in their lifetime .

People like patrick will end up getting theirs so to speak one day in life. The world has a funny way of dealing with people like him . Took action with the Bank fraud department , well see what becomes of it.
