I think those are Zinik wheels (Shogun / Z1) drilled to spec (if not they are very similar). I am thinking about getting the Sofi / Z21. I too would love to know if there is any scrubbing.Acadia1 said:Nice looking rig!
Who manufactured those sweet rims? Due to the bolt pattern were they custom drilled?
I had a similar experience, I spoke with Howard and he advised me to contact any local Big 10 or Discount Tire as dealers in my area. He also assured me that any of the "SUV" rims will work fine on the Acadia, but was not much more help. After calling about 10 of these big chains, I gave up. Half of them say , "Z-who"? The other half say, ya we really don't do aftermaket wheels. One guy suggested that the Z-21 are for cars only.....but I mentioned the X5 and he was at a loss.imgntht said:I called to inquire about custom drilling and their SALES team (or Sales-Prevention team) told me nothing they make can be custom-drilled for the Acadia. Even told me the Z21 was not made for an SUV, yet it clearly says it on the website and even shows a BMW X5 with them on it. I called him out on it and said they only fit the BMW brand.... :bs:
The Zinik Z21 (Sofi) was a no go on the acadia. However, the Z14 (Ferara) will work.imgntht said:Let us know if they do in fact confirm the Z21 would work. I probably wouldn't get them if you did just so each of us could remain unique (even though we don't even live near each other...I'm wierd like that).
I too tried Discount Tire as they are close to me, my family and I have dealt with them in the past all with good experiences, and they carried about 3 different styles I was interested in. As with Zinik they seemed clueless about the Acadia and said nothing fits it yet...well no kidding, I igured your computer would say that! Now listen to what I am asking (CUSTOM DRILLED), and use some common sense. They didn't even offer to call any manufacturers to research it for me.
My last experience was with a National Tire & Battery(NTB). What a pleasure to work with. He listened and understood what I was trying to do and even called a manufacturer for me to see if the style rim I was interested in could be custom drilled. Unfortunately it could not, but he even went a step further and suggested 2 other rims(neither were my taste) that could work. Wish I could remember his name, I would call back and provide some positive feedback to his boss.
Well, the Z14 (Ferara) was my 2nd choice of their offerings so I stopped there. They did say that if it says "SUV" on their website, it they can be fitted to the Acadia - As far as I know the Z21 Sofi is the only exception to that rule.imgntht said:Thanks dmann33 for following up on this. So only the Z14 was the only rim they said could work? Darn...the hunt continues! :
