Default Anyone at Discount tire?

Im looking to buy a set of wheels that discount carries. Just wanted to see if anyone works there and knows of a sale or promotion coming up. Tryin to save a few bucks if possible. Also want to see if maybe they can get ahold of the company to see if they can do what I need

I think right now they are offering a $100 rebate on any qualifying purchase of 4. Last week it was $50, so I bought 4 tires, I should have waited a week.

Well I want 4 TSW Nurburgrings, 18x10.5 in the matte black finish. TSW lists them in that size with 2 different offsets and back spacing. A +67 with the 5x4.75 (for Corvette's) and +27 with 5x4.5 (for Mustang's). I need the wheels in the +27 offset but with the 5x4.75 bolt pattern. BTW, TSW I guess is a company in Europe somewhere. Their website does not have any way for me to contact them. The only phone number they give you is to find a local dealer. Discount carries them, I just need to see if someone can get these how I want/need.

If i cannot get them in the 4.75BP, I would have to get the 4.5 and then have my hubs and rotors redrilled.....always. It will become a big PITA every time I waste a set of rotors or hubs. The car Im building is going to be driven pretty hard so I am trying to plan accordingly to maintain it. The less specialty parts I need, the better which is why I picked C6 stuff. I can place the studs in the 4.5 or 4.75BP for my rear axle but the front end is using stock corvette parts

BTW, I had a buddy at belle tire try to get em. He said that discount is the only ones that carry em. I found em for sale at a few other places online too. Im pretty dead set on these wheels tho. They are light weight, rotary forged for strength and pretty cheap for what they are

If you find the correct wheels buy at least 5. Chances of discount still importing these in a year is slim. I deal with body shops way to often that need 1 aftermarket wheel and its no longer made.

Thanks guys. If one of you guys at discount can check it out, Id appreciate it. I heard back from one of the companies online that I asked this question to. They said that TSW would do it but I would have to get 48 wheels ordered for them to do it

Im going to see if I can get other people interested in the wheels. If anyone calls, maybe also ask if the hubs have enough material to have a 2nd bolt pattern machined into em
