We protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts all of the information you provide to us and prevents outside parties from being able to "see" your transaction information. When your account information is displayed on your screen, we only display the last five digits of your credit card numbers. You also have the choice of whether or not to save credit card information with us in your Online Account.


Occasionally, some items are unexpectedly out of stock or unavailable and may be backordered. If this should occur, we will only bill your credit card for merchandise that is actually shipped. The total shipping charge for orders split into multiple shipments will not exceed the amount quoted on the original order.

Shipping costs are non-refundable on damaged or incorrect merchandise.

We'll need to charge re-stocking fees for items if the item has been used, damaged during shipping, or if it's something we don't usually carry.(Labor fees are not refundable, for example: custom built wheels.) Returns over $100 must have a return authorization (RA) number clearly marked on the outside of the package or the item will be refused. A return authorization number can be obtained by email.
