    I have this posted over on the F800BMW (Vendors)forum but beware I ordered a tire change stand from this clown and have never received it. He doesn't return calls or emails.One other person remarked he hasn't gotten his mechandise either. I have reported him to the BBB. He had no problem charging my account but has not delivered in any way since.

    Finally received my tire changer last week . I guess 4-6 weeks isn't bad if the product was shipped on a turtle and went through South America .

    What? No apologies to the vendor after trying to take business away from him for the past week?

    Apologize for what? I'd be a little more than pissed if I ordered something that took over 4 weeks to arrive along with no communications from the vendor.

    I'm glad I found this thread. I really wanted one of the MRP stands but noticed that his web store was closed but the site was still functioning. His ordering instructions was to also call and even leave a message and Mike would respond. I left a phone msg 1-2 weeks ago and still no response. I'm glad I haven't sent a check or MO. I went ahold and bought an MSR stand. It arrived and doesn't appear to be near the quality of the MRP stand. I'm glad others have received the product having paid for it. For now, Ill use the MSR. I'll give the benefit of doubt to Mike but won't order until I'm sure Ill get the stand.

    I ordered a Mike's Racing Products Tire changing stand on 11/26/2012.

    http://www.mikesracingproducts.com/default.htm

    Recived it on 12/05/2012. About 10 days.

    The order statment went throu APP Race Tools. I recived no traking number or shipping date. Looks like a good product made by a small business. If production falls behind shipping will take longer. Better communication would help.

    Well I pulled the trigger on a stand from Mike's..I called him yesterday and he called me back before the end of the day with an answer....Besides his lack of communication in the past has anybody ever place and order and not received the product..??? Or did it just take a while to arrive..???

    thanks

    I know this is a old thread, but I ordered one last week, like tue. got it Monday...so less than a week. Maybe things have changed...hope so because this in a very nice very well made tire change stand. The quality is better than you can see in the pics, and is American made.
