    I found some info online. Everything is done at the Warren Plant except the rim installation. The Black Rims are strapped down in the bed of the truck and are part of the Dealer Prep. The Dealer is supposed to put the Black Rims on and you should never see the original factory rims on the truck you are buying let alone getting the extra set with the truck..

    As stated above..... I will never take this truck back to that dealer.. Obviously they do not know what they are doing.

    Why wouldn't you take it back to the dealer just because they gave you a free set of wheels? Sales people are generally pretty clueless but they are not the ones that work on the cars.

    I have the fronts at 55 and the rears at 50. I couldn't do the 10 psi spread so I put it down to just the 5. How about you?

    Rims are not chump change. I understand that they are different depts., but the company culture that would allow that level of incompetence would concern me on where that incompetence stopped.....is it just in the sales dept. or does it flow over to the service dept. too? I would not want to find out on my new truck. How is the training, skill, and oversight of Mgmt?...if it's not very good on the sales side of the house then is it much better on the service side? It's the GM's job to make sure both depts. are at their best. Trust me....I know.

    I set the fronts at 58 and the rear at 55... Still playing around , but this feels pretty good so far.

    I want the black rims badly. Wish all rebels came with them. They look much nicer imo. Anyone selling any?
