Y'know, those rims almost look like the ones that came on either the first or second generation Mitsubishi Eclipse or maybe the Plymouth Laser. (Yes I have seen some with gold), crosslace and all. I wonder...I bet there is a reason why those centercaps are missing...seems wierd that the rims are in pristine shape and no center caps.

I think finding out what they really came from will also be a big help to your case. And I'm certain you're going to find that all Bonneville'* 92-99 had the same wheel lug patterns.

Regarding eBay/Paypal (they are the same company, BTW) and the claim process: Give them all the ammo and info you can, but then expect it to take a couple weeks. When I had my claim, there was a period of a couple weeks where the case appeared to be in "no man'* land" where it was just listed as "investigation ongoing" or something like that. But then one day, surprise! Money returned via Paypal! Quite amazing.

Make sure to leave negative feedback, but be as accurate as possible; something like "Sold Mitsubishi rims as Bonneville rims, would not refund or accept return" -(when you know what they are, that is.)

Now this is just an idea but maybe the center caps were "missing" because they had a mitsu logo.

More ebay FYI. If you paid with Paypal, their "recovery procedure" takes you straight to Paypal to file the claim. I know they are both the "same" company. Meg is a razor sharp CEO. I was poised over the "sell" button when Disney was courting her to replace Eisner.

They say they will need at least 30 days to come to conclusion. Oh well. The other bite to this, if my buddy forks over the money, I think I still get stuck for the shipping costs back to him. If he doesn't make good, I guess I get a Paypal reimbursement less $25. But I'll have the wheels, too. Then I definitely have to figure out where they belong.

I think the best thing to do is get an exact measure on the lug configuration and search on that.

I am holding negative feedback as a chip to play at the appropriate time in case my buddy sees the light. Otherwise, he gets it when the investigator files.

As i said, this is the first time in this for me. I'll be happy to report back how the ebay process treats the victim, if y'all are interested.

I'm sure patience will be a necessity.

What size rim is it? and how wide is it? Just by the first glance they look like Fiero rims.

They look like knock off'* of BBK rims that every aftermarket wheel maker made in the 80'* and 90'*

Gunna be real tough finding centers for them. Getting your money back is probably the best route to follow.

About that 30 days, that'* what I was trying to convey when I said the process can take a couple weeks. And yes, you can expect to either pay for return shipping or it sounds like a $25 difference. Either way, that'* pretty typical. But honestly, I think you owe it to other eBayers to leave negative feedback right now. You have been screwed by this seller, who defrauded you and refuses to make good after misrepresenting an item. Other people are bound to get similarly screwed if not alerted to this user'* behavior. Just think if you might have thought twice about buying, if you'd seen a bunch of recent highly negative feedback about this seller misrepresenting the compatibility of other car parts. That'* what eBay'* feedback is for. You've made the proper communications with the seller to explain the problem, and he'* decided he can walk away from this and leave you stuck with rims that don't even fit your car.

You should leave strongly negative feedback right now. If your seller eventually makes good, you can both mutually withdraw feedback, but at least the alert will remain visible to other buyers.

I hear ya Bugsi. i have been watching his account daily to make sure he doesn't have anything else listed for sale. If he puts something up, I then have a moral imperative to immediately neg him. You have to trust me, i am being advised by somebody very familiar with the process and there are some timing things to stick to for maximizing the speed of rectifying the situation and then leaving the nastiest, undeniable feedback entry. let me deal with the investigator first, only then is the claim official. I have to wait for some form to complete.
