    The bullchit with the seller is that I ordered 4 hubs and they sent me 2 wheel spacers????
    Then I ordered the wheels and tires and they came with no center caps or lug nuts????(included)
    Then they want me to pack up the wheel spacers,print a label and drive 20 miles to a FedEx location...all the while they have my money??
