Before this gets out of hand:
1.) This is the LAST RUN of Alcoas. That's it. I TRIED to make it a regular stocking item, but Alcoa will not do it. I was able to get one more run made, but this is IT.
2.) They are NOT "leftovers"- I WISH it had been that easy.
3.) The Pre-Order program is sold out. That does NOT mean the wheels are all spoken for. We will be getting some in to sell. The pre-order customers will get theirs first. Then we will put the rest on the site and announce it.
I offered to make up some special GT500KR caps for anyone who wants them. It's not a regular item, I'm just making them one-by-one to treat our KR customers to something special.
