Default Stefan

Stefan for any sales outside of the US/Carribean please send inquiries to [email protected], in the UK. They are the manufactor of Contact. Not sure if they read this thread much.
We had some of the same issues back in Sept/Oct 2010. Over the last 5 months we haven't seen but a few mishaps here, considering the amount of tires we sale. contactrc.com covers the US and carribean markets.

I am sure your distributor will get it handled. And I am sure you will talk to Robert sometime soon.

I just tried a set of 35 shore carbon rims and they too split at the seams. At first i tot it was my bodyshell that was causing it, but after my 2nd set with the same results.... Something must be wrong.

I won't deny what you have seen, but if that person contacted us they were taken care of. We have had a few issues that have been addressed. But I must say that the pecentage of mis-product sold and out on the street was very small.

The best thing of all is we stand behind our product and take care of our customers.
