FN Wheels Update : 05/10/2021 – Many Wheels are In-Stock + Updated Shipping Lead Times


May 10, 2021

Dear FN Wheels Customers,

Thank you all for your patience while we work through the current supply chain delays that have plagued us for the last year.

We have good news : many models of our wheels are back in stock (including the always popular FN FX Pro in 17×8″). We will be updating individual product pages at https://www.fnwheels.com/store/ with current inventory over the next few days.

We also have models / sizes / colors / offsets that are not listed on our website, but which are back in stock or should be back in stock soon. We will post a separate update at https://www.fnwheels.com/shop-news/ with this information very soon. The best way to order those wheels will be to call us at (951)735-1100 while work on updating the online store.

Due to continued delays from our ancillary vendors (FedEx, USPS, trucking companies and packaging suppliers), plus unprecedented demand for our wheels our current processing and handling lead times  are 7-10 business days for in-stock products. This processing and handling time is necessary for us so that we can continue to perform a final inspection of every single wheel before it leaves our warehouse, adequately package every item with extra protection and packaging material, double box every wheel, and ensure that every order is checked for accuracy. The processing time will be in addition to the normal delivery time from the carrier (i.e. FedEx, USPS, etc.). Tracking will be provided once your order has been fully inspected and prepared for shipping. We do not generate tracking numbers in advance, as that usually only serves to fuel confusion as to when the package was actually shipped. For example, many of us have received tracking numbers that only state “label created” or something similar, and then aren’t updated for days. While it’s great to have a tracking number right away, we prefer to generate tracking upon shipment, and not upon receipt of the customer’s order, so that once you receive tracking information you know that your order is on the way and not in limbo.

We cannot reduce this processing and handling time without potentially reducing the quality that we’ve become known for. Simply put, we take our time inspecting and preparing every order, and it would require “cutting corners” to expedite processing and handling. FN Wheels doesn’t just receive a delivery from our manufacturer and “assume” that the factory QA/QC was sufficient and performed to our standards.

Virtually all wheel brands in the world (and particularly the United States) source their products from a private label manufacturer in Asia. Quality and price vary widely from private label manufactures and even within the same manufacturer based on the requirements of the customer (the brand). Typical wheel industry standards for wheel brands in the U.S. are to receive wheels from their factory overseas, and then ship them directly to the end user or tire installer exactly as received from the factory without ever double checking the product. Even the best factories sometimes make mistakes or overlook QA/QC standards, and many brands are not using the “best” factories in Asia.

We source our wheels from a small group of premium manufacturers with whom we’ve worked with for over 15 years. Prior to formalizing relationships with our manufacturers we spent years assessing quality from different brand names and factories that we sold in our retail store, including ultra high end Japanese and European brands. Our suppliers know our standards very well, and we selected them because they are able to build to our high standards. With that said, the FN Wheels standards can only be FN Wheels’ standards if FN Wheels is performing the final quality control on every item before it leaves our warehouse here in the U.S. We are definitely anomalous within our industry (and frankly most industries) insofar as individually inspecting every single product before shipping to our customers. It is extremely time and resource consuming to do this, however we aren’t willing to disappoint our customers or damage our 20+ year reputation by cutting corners in our process. We just need a little more time than usual to process orders right now because of the higher volume of orders and the delays that some of our vendors are experiencing.

Thank you all for continuing to support our family run business, so that we can continue to treat all of you like close friends and family. We greatly appreciate your patronage and patience. It is our intention to continue to offer the best service that we can, the best FN Wheels possible, and the most reasonable price to quality ratio that we can provide to all of our customers.

Gratefully,

Dustin

March 2021 : Important Update Regarding Shipping Lead Times


March 09,2021

Dear FN Wheels Customers,

Thank you all for your continued patronage and support. Over the last year we have not reduced our work or shipping schedule, and in fact we have extended our hours of operation to meet the demands of our customers. We value every single one of our customers, and we wouldn’t be here without you all. We’ve also not compromised our quality control, standards or integrity in any shape or form.

With that said, the continued persistence of delays from our ancillary vendors, particularly shipping and freight companies, with regard to their reduction in service guarantees as a result of procedural changes due to government or corporate mandates, winter storms / the deep freeze in Texas, supply shortages or other reasons, has now resulted in shipping delays that our outside of our control.

The purpose of this update is to inform all of our customers that we will continue to work as hard as possible to reduce the impact of these delays, even if it continues to require long hours and a 7 day work schedule, but we ask very respectfully that our customers please be patient and expect shipping delays as the situation is now outside of our control. As much as we’d like to be in full control of every aspect of our business, we are not a freight/shipping company, and at times like this we are the mercy of FedEx, UPS, USPS and the various trucking companies that we contract to make our deliveries and to deliver to us.

If at anytime you have a question regarding your order or shipping status please do not hesitate to contact us by phone at (951)735-1100 or email: [email protected] Due to the high volume of calls and emails that we are currently receiving regarding tracking/shipping inquiries it might not be possible for us to answer your call immediately. If you leave a message on our voicemail we will absolutely call you back.

Thank you all very, very much for your continued patronage and support.

Sincerely,

Dustin Flickner
