Default Ruff Racing Wheels? official site?

Does anybody know the official site or phone number for Ruff Wheels? Id rather order them straight from the factory so I get the cheapest price.

I doubt getting them from the factory would yield that best price, manufactorers give retailers discount off of the msrp, they call it jobber pricing, usually the factory sells at the msrp. So I would find a place that sells them and start wheeling and dealing.

I agree, you will most likely pay more if you buy them direct when it comes to wheels. When I was pricing out some Boyds for example, I could get them for about $1k from a sponsor as opposed to 1600-1700 direct from them.

Well I would be ordering them through my dealership which would be considered a "retailer". It worked with HP before?

I work at Discount Tire Co. in Tx...I dunno which states have other stores, but go there and you can haggle a sweet price. Or...talk with that chris on here that is a discount tire sponsor. I ordered a set of 18's Ruff Racing 278's in chrome for WELL UNDER A GRAND....shipped too! I do get a nice discount though There is a huge back order and I should be getting them May 1st. I've been waiting awhile before that, but its so worth it! They come from Germany.

I think www.statuswheels.com is the official manufacturer site. They make a few other brands as well, but it is not a retail site. You will probably have to order them through your company or a distributor. It really depends on where your company is located because I don't think they will not sell them to other businesses that are within a certain radius of another registered distributor.

HotWhipTA: Who was your contact? I've been looking at getting a set of 19" 278s. Thanks
