Default Wrong wheels installed... thoughts?

So I ordered a brand new set of Avant Garde M590 wheels in silver. offset 17mm more than stock to bring them out flush. Took 2 weeks, and my local Discount Tire swapped my stock P-Zeros over today. I like the look... but now that the immediate afterglow has faded, I've realized... these are indeed not M590 wheels. They are M580.




so... I like them. They're wrong, but they're almost right. correct size, correct offset, correct finish. I like them more on the car than I do on the website. But, they're still not what I ordered. I even verified on my receipt - I did in fact order the M590. For comparison:



What would you do? Keep the ones that are wrong but still look good, or insist that they get the correct ones which I'm not sure I will like more? I'd appreciate any feedback.

^^^ What jaguny said. You deserve to receive what you ordered!


My vote (on looks) goes to the 580s. But I could easily get used to the 590s.

++++++++++

That pic of your F with the top down just KILLED me. COME ON, SPRING! It's currently 30F here and the winds are howling art 35 MPH. BRRR

jaguny probably got snow overnight though. So he has it worse than me...

I think the 580s have a simplistic elegance - the 590s look a bit fussy for my taste.

580's look fine. 590's are pretty busy - detract from the beauty of the F type. But I'd get a price adjustment for icing on the cake

I vote for the 580s. They have a sculptureal quality that suits the car to a tee. The 590s are too angular to my eye.

I think putting Perelli on your car is a huge mistake, should have went with Michelin Pilot 4S. Otherwise gorgeous car and good looking wheels.

jaguar put the pirellis on there, not me. And while I agree that I would prefer to have the MP4S, the p-zero is fine and I already own them. When they need replacement, I will get my preferred tire. These are the originals from 2016 and only have 3500 miles so that might be a little while.

I like the 580's better. I would ask for a little bit of refund since you didn't get what you ordered. maybe twice the cost of mount and balance. It' too much of a PIA to fool with when you honestly didn't notice the wrong wheel. But you should get something back.

I think if it didn't stand out to ya when you opened them up you like them just as well. I like them more as well.

Since the voting is split between the 580 and 590, the only logical thing to do is run two of each. The next question is to divide front/rear or side to side.

But not split evenly. By my count itís 9-1 in favor of the 580s. But then again, I have a bent finger, so I donít count so well anymore.

I've had concussions, so don't think so well anymore. I'd count the "have them send what you ordered" as a vote for the 590, so would tally at least two there. Nevertheless, it's obvious we need more F-Types.

Another vote for the 580.

I'd personally keep what you have, but out of interest were both options around the same price?

590 is my taste personally!

What are the wheel specs? Size and offset? I would love a set in gloss black.

Edit: Doubling over them again, I might have changed my mind to the 580. That's a tough choice - for me the color makes a good bit of difference

yeah Avant Garde is all custom with a uniform price for each series of wheel they offer. 17x8 or 21x11 or anything in between is all the same price per wheel.

To be fair, I did notice the difference, sort of subconsciously. I knew what I saw wasn't what I expected to see, but I initially wrote that off bc wheels always look different in situ than they do in pictures online. I wasn't displeased. I'm still not displeased. In fact I'd say they are even growing on me. At this point it's about getting the foul-up acknowledged and corrected more than anything.

I went by the Discount Tire store today and spoke with the store manager. We looked at his order and verified - he put down exactly what I told him to. Avant Garde must have just put the wrong template file into the CNC. The store manager said he would call them on Monday and see what options they will offer. Obviously, a full replacement is warranted. But, I think I want to keep these... so I asked the manager to offer that I pay scrap value for these and keep them, and send me a set of correct wheels. If they bite, I may ask them to cut the correct wheels for my cobra instead of my f-type
