lol... It was sort of a last-minute deal. You can find similar trailers for about $500 to the one I got now. I was a little on the fence on this deal because it will involve some TLC to make it look like I want it to, but I like having a winter project.

It's something to take on to keep your wife from giving you unwanted projects liked fixing stuff on the house. Winter projects usually don't get completed until just before spring, regardless of how few hours it takes.

Wheel place called. They scratched one of the wheels on the install. Brand f*cking new, I didn't even open 3 of the boxes f*cking new!
They called a 'wheel guy' to come out and see if he can repair it. They'll let me know late this afternoon. I asked if it was a big scratch or a little one. They said it happened when they were using a centering ring for balancing it so it's all the way around the middle center.
I guess I need to put things in perspective and let it go, but it still ticks me off.

So maybe the wheel guy pretends he can fix it and probably has it a week, maybe it looks OK but I question weather the paint/clearcoat will hold up. Or I see if I can get them to just buy a replacement and have one in 3 days.

I would try and replace it. I used to be in charge of a the Carroll Shelby Wheels warehouse in town. Quality inspections happened all the time and regardless of small or large it was extremely hard to get rid of it completely. Judy my .02

I haven't seen it and don't want to so that I can give it an unbiased opinion if they do a repair. Meanwhile I sent a message to the place I bought the wheels to see what they would charge for just 1. I hope that if there isn't much difference between repair or replace, they will go with replace. These are cheap OEM knock-offs but I was pretty impressed with the quality.
Whatever happens, it means I won't be driving with the new wheel mounted and balanced till late next week unless I want three of the new ones and one old one. I wouldn't do that because while the rolling diameter is the same, I am moving from a 17x7.5 to a 18x8 wheel.
These are a replica of the 2013 A6 S-Line wheel and similar to some R8 Wheels.

Just make sure to check all 4. If repairing it didn't go as well as they wanted then I might choose a different non damaged wheel to show the customer...
