Hi Steve,

I also have a set of wheels on the way. Cheetah confirmed delivery of my wheels to their facility in Australia. Last I heard they were hoping to have the container loaded & on the way to the states on 8/29. I haven't heard anything since. Estimated arrival in Indianapolis was 4-6 weeks (going to go with 6). I was planning to email them in a week to get an update.

nice, keep us updated then if you can give a break down of the costs. Delays seem to by a common part of ocean shipping. I had the tracking of the boat and saw it sitting for like 4 days off the coast of LA waiting for a spot to unload..

Ok guys, the wheels arrived today! Here's the breakdown:

- Ordered from Wheelking on 7/31 for $636 (including credit card fee and freight to the overseas shipper's (Cheetah Imports) warehouse in Australia @ an exchange rate of $1.31)
- Took roughly four days for Wheelking to process and ship to Cheetah's warehouse
- The container left Australia on 8/29 or somewhere thereabouts
- Not sure when the container arrived on the west coast, but the wheels arrived at Cheetah's warehouse in Indianapolis on 10/31
- The contact at Cheetah was very helpful. I scanned and emailed him FedEx shipping labels and he dropped them off at a nearby FedEx location for me on 11/16 and they arrived today

Cost for Cheetah to ship overseas was $140. FedEx was $102 for a grand total of $878.

Now all I need to do is get my suspension in order. :lol:
