In Reply to: How to deal with dealers wen u got aftermarket (m posted by Kris on February 11, 2000 at 19:32:07:

I used to drive a '98 MB c280 sport with 18x8.5 BBS RC's which, after a few thousand miles, caused my turn signals to not work and other various steering problems. I don't know if it was because of the increased diameter, or wider tires, but the car could not compensate for the larger wheels. I removed the wheels prior to bringing my car into the dealership and they gladly fixed it under warranty. They already knew that I had aftermarket wheels because I had received two oil changes through them while the BBS's were on there. If you put on your stock wheels, and they still won't help fix your problem, take it to another dealership like Kurt B said. Worst case scenario, take it to an independent shop, because if you simply overlook the problem for a while, it will only get worse. Good luck.
