    Teddy, Thanks for your input. I understand and agree with most or your reply. The whole point though, is quality. Otherwise what are you buying? Most of the troublesome parts were made in china. I am more familiar with china made products than I'd like to be. Fact is china is actually ruining the world base product supply. When you take a close look at a china mfgd part, you first find that the metal structure is either castings with small to large holes, covered up with a grey putty, or pressed steel parts where the metal is contaminated causing weak spots and corrosion. You also find parts inside that do not really fit, such as springs that are too long, insulating washers too thin, fastener threads incorrect, and rough mating / moving parts. Then you find dirty solders, missing solders, solder tabs too small for the pc board, and wiring attached to terminals with solder only. On top of that a reliable parts supply for repair of china made products does not exist. The point is that a person or garage cannot even do preventative work without serious risk. It's become better to keep a rusty, corroded part till it dies. China has taken manufacturing to a new all time low, and napa is buying those parts and representing them as quality with both advertising and cost. Car parts that are unreliable is a serious problem for the world.

    A Proud Deplorable, I don't know who you are, but you clearly don't know me. You're probably a napa washington employee or owner. What I said happened, happened. The fact that you're unhappy about me letting people know changes nothing, the pretending to know me, but hiding your name will be figured out by anyone with half a brain. It shows even further how child like and dishonest the owners william, and george in the machine shop are. The rest of your reply is not worth replying to.

    Joe Pagone….based on past experiences with you, I find it hard to take you seriously. Perhaps you are still living in the past and cannot catch up with the reality of how the world works now. Or, maybe you are just being yourself, a cranky constant complainer. In any case, I find it hard to believe that the Washington store treated you so badly. If this were true, I doubt highly that this particular store would remain in business as this would be happening to all customers. If you don't like how they treated you, you are free to conduct business elsewhere. But knowing you as I do, I'm sure you will find fault with everyone you do business with. Vote for Trump in 2020 and let him bring back more manufacturing to America and then maybe you will be happy with the quality. OOps, I forgot......you don't vote.

    Jegs is up to $8.99 a quart now. I guess the deal was too good. Just bought it at $3.72 from Summit Racing: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/ado-10-9253?seid=srese1&gclid=CjwKCAjwmNzoBRBOEiwAr2V27Q3Cu57fnfBV_o6Inm0L4n8st5K7hqjf6IBBukD2PrQGTrxUqgoY1RoCYWkQAvD_BwE

    There are many advantages for precision machining, the most obvious part is it can reach to high precision that the normal way can’t do. Precision also depends on precision processing equipment and accurate control system, and use the precision mask as an intermediary, to achieve small control for precision by removal or addition.so what specific characteristics for precision machining? Let engineer from Kanou Precision introduce the details now: 一,Precision parts cutting processing There are mainly precision turning, mirror grinding and grinding. By using single crystal diamond turning tool with a fine grinding to do micro-turning, and the thickness can be around 0.01mm, It often is used to machine high precision and high polishing parts that is non-ferrous metal materials with Spherical surface, aspheric surface, surface. 二,Precision Parts Machining When the precision machining use nm, even use 0.1nm as the target, The Cutting processing can’t meet the requirements, then we need use special machining method like Application of chemical, electrochemical, thermal or electrical energy, etc, to achieve the High Precision requirements. These processes include mechanochemical polishing, ion sputtering, and ion implantation, electron beam exposure, laser beam processing, metal evaporation, molecular beam epitaxy, etc. For the introduction about precision machining to you is here, You can visit our website:kanouprecision.com to know more news about us. Kanou specializes in the production of quality machined parts, precision turned parts, offering professional machining services at a competitive price and on timely delivery. With our extensive machining capabilities, we produce the most challenging precision machined parts covering all Industries especially in mass production in the automotive industry. Our main products including metal assembly part, medical component, Light part, connectors, fasteners, automotive spare part, aerospace components, auto components, etc, we can also custom the precision part as customer’s requirement, and assembly service is also acceptable. Our purpose is to make more benefits to the customer.

    First try to find out what they fit but because they are 20 series and low profile, I would try to get $150-250 each so $600-1000 as long as the rims aren't bent or damaged.

    Napa doesn't make anything so its all just privately branded. That being said, you have to watch what you buy. Rock Auto doesn't have their own brand and sells the manufacturer branded parts directly from other suppliers. The reality is that since rock auto, amazon, and other online sellers hit the market and online purchasing increased, margins dropped because of heavy competition. Large companies like Napa have more overhead than Rock Auto. Rock Auto is drop-shipping, they don't have any warehouses or parts stores. They are order takes and have negotiated with companies like Parts Authority and other WDs to send out (drop ship) their orders. They make much less margin but sell a lot. They have much less overhead; no stores, no large staff of employees, etc., so they can afford to do that. Napa can't sell at those prices without closing some stores, laying off some people, and reducing overhead to operate at lower margins. So...to keep margins higher, Napa renegotiates with manufacturers and sometimes quality suffers because the manufacturers try to make it for less.

    Thanks or the link. I think "Linkxup OBD GPS Tracker" is one of the best car alarm system.

    I have and usually the pricing is cheaper, but lookout for knockoffs from china.
