IMPORTANT NOTE FOR THE SHELBY FORGED WHEEL PRE-ORDER PROGRAM:

Recommended Posts

A lot of folks missed the fine print, or got confused.

 

We don't need all of your money now. We don't WANT all of your money now.

We only request a $500 "good faith" deposit, for up to six wheels. That way, folks can buy (for example) 2 fronts, 2 rears, and a spare for each.

Lots of people gave us WAY too much money (this happened a lot with customers who ordered online, and was much more prevalent in our Canadian brothers and sisters, for some reason).

 

You MAY get an email that your dollar amount has changed, it'll be less money than you remember committing to. YOUR ORDER HAS NOT. I just don't want to take $3000 from anyone who thinks they NEED to do that to secure 6 wheels. You don't.

 

Any questions, please call us. 702-405-3500.

 

Thanks, and congratulations to the lucky new owners for their astounding support of an iconic product celebrating FIFTY YEARS of Shelby American.

Hey Jer I was wondering the same thing. Do you have an estimated date on when we will be contacted for the rest of the payment? I just kinda want a heads up so I can make sure I have the money together in time lol. I'm only 19 so I'm not rich like a lot of guys on here!

They will be shipped in the order they were purchased, so there will be many ship dates.

I would recommend anyone who ordered early be ready soon. Our ETA to the last customers will be complete before the end of December...

I believe in "underpromising and overdelivering".

 

:salute:

 

 

We're calling customers in a "first come, first served" order - anyone who is not ready to make final payment due to our early delivery is simply moved further back toward December to accomodate. No pressure, we just wanted to exceed expectations.

 

First person to post pictures of them mounted on their car gets a free T-shirt of their choice from the SPP online store.

I haven't put that together yet. It's actually starting to look like it's not going to happen, but I can't confirm it yet. Sorry for the wait.

I ordered mine the second day around 4pm I wonder when I'll get the call

 

 

My guess would be that you won't be called for a few weeks, but that's a very rough guess.

So i finally have $2,500 in Benjamins saved and hidden in my gun safe at work.

 

Let's hope the wheels show up before I head to Vegas in January, cause the crap table might just win out over the wheels.

Is this cool or what?

 

 

:rockon:

 

My whole team are really having fun with this project. We have an entire additional warehouse dedicated to the program, and we've got 6 people going through the process:

 

1. Open every box.

2. Inspect every wheel.

3. Re-pack every wheel with bubble wrap, in the original box, then pack into an ADDITIONAL outer box for shipping protection.

4. Add center caps to orders that chose them.

5. Ship!

 

My newly-promoted Shipping Manager Bill Cherwin is overseeing the team effort, and they have been processing HUNDREDS of wheels each day. It's impressive to see the operation. Bill worked with Alcoa to streamline their packaging process, adding a layer of cling wrap, then a protective plastic ring around each wheel's rim.

That looks like a really fun warehouse to hang out in especially after a good night at the table :) Who get's the golf cart??? Talked with Jonathan yesterday, wheels (and caps) are on the way!

Tousley Ford Parts Depot has the TPMS kit with activation tool for a 2012 GT500 for $140 plus shipping. Part # TPMSKIT. These will fit the Alcoa's and work with the 2013 GT500. These are the plastic sensors that come standard in the 2012 GT500's and are only recommended for 2012 GT500 speeds.
