lol, the place that did my brakes was my friend in his yard - he offers no warranty, haha.
Anyways, it WAS a caliper problem - the anchor bolt was MISSING! It was the exact situation that Littlehoov had. His left deep scars in the rim, but unfortunately it PIERCED my rim. I took the car to Midas today, they said the dealership wanted $890 for a new rim, which is ridiculous. Anyone have any rims for sale that live in OHIO? I'll drive to you. The fix was $15, but the consequences are $900, luck.
Check recycling yards. They may even be able to mount and balance your tire on the new rim. Call around.
What rims do you have?
I have a full set of 17" five spokes, the ones that have a wide spoke with a triangular bit at the end. Umm.... I'll try and find a pic some where. But anyway, if you have those rims, I may be willing to let go of one really cheap. I only have them to put drag radials on, so I only need two.
EDIT: here'* the style of rims I have in the garage. PM me if they're the right ones.
I ended up finding one in Michigan for $125 that was refurbished with a gaurantee and he even mounted and balanced the tire for me. GREAT guy, its a mid size rim shop outside of Detroit. Took 2 hours to drive there, but well worth saving nearly $800!!
PM me if anyone wants to know the name of the rim shop, they're excellent!
P.*. STILL have not figured out my tach, speedo, cruise, turn signal issue..lol. Driving me NUTS!
