I have been in love with the Titan-7 T-S5 rims ever since I first saw them on AMS's site months ago (now taken down due to current unavailability for the Q50).
In summary, here's what I bought:
Set of four Titan-7 T-S5 19” in color Satin Titanium staggered at Front 19”x9.5”, 5x114.3, +38; and Rear 19”x10.5”, 5x114.3, +45, with four Satin Titanium center caps. (Basically the set-up that Titan recommends)
Front (19"x9.5"): 20.6 lb
Rear (19"x10.5"): 21.1 lb
I placed an order for these wheels from AMS in May but they ended up calling me a few days later to tell me they are going to cancel the order and refund my money because there was no expected hard availability date. Titan-7 suggested it would be July (2019) and I was willing to wait but AMS didn't want to hold my money. Fast forward to this week. I contacted Titan and they told me these are starting to ship and he suggested I do a pre-order. He said the wheels are due mid/late July.
Since these wheels are cheaper at AMS than through Titan (go figure that one), I wanted to buy from AMS (but remember, the wheels are not on their site currently). So I contact them to tell them Titan suggested I pay for the rims. Nope, still won't do it! lol
But I did NOT want to buy from Titan direct!!! $2600 + $2XX CA tax + $95 shipping + $88 center caps = nearly $3k! (On Titan's website) Ahhhh! H no!
Long story short, I surfed the web looking for other authorized Titan-7 vendors. Stumbled across vivid racing (https://www.vividracing.com/
). I worked with Tyler I. Great customer service. The price he offers is $2600 + shipping
. (I happened to get a little better price but I think it's fair that I state only what his regular price is.). This includes center caps. vivid is in AZ so it is possible AZ folks may have to pay sales tax, but I did not.
I am stoked! I'm still shaking from the $ spent, but super stoked no less.
I'm sure I can look it up but if you'll allow me to be lazy, can I ask the tire pros what size tires I'll want for these rims? Looking at Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Thanks in advance.
