Moto Metal wheels

I was wondering if any of you out there know who makes or distributes Moto Metal and Helo wheels. I just started a tire business on the side and can't find any helpfull info on becoming a dealer for these wheels. Any info would be great.

Thanks
Scott

Bigger, I found a # and faxed the paper work in. I've been on the web for a couple of nights trying to figure out who made the wheels and figured someone on here would know. Thanks again man you saved the day.

they don't carry Jesse James but another source for some nice wheels.
Wheel Resource Inc. 2007

Wheel Connection carries Jesse James, but they aren't the main distributor.
Wholesale Custom Wheels | Tires | Chrome Rims

I will look through my old books tonight and see if I can find out who I used to use.

No, I had a shop and we mainly did wheels/tires, lift kits, spray-in bedliners, etc for dealerships. My advice, if you are thinking about going to dealerships, don't. They can hurt you bad and fast. The aftermarket guys are (not all) prima donnas and high maintenance. It is almost impossible to do business with the dealerships and maintain your integrity. Everyone all the way up the chain wants greased and when they get busted they throw the vendors under the bus!

I'm not bitter though.

I here ya. I like dealers about as much as cops. I do not plan on doing any business with dealers. I have never had great service with tire installs so I figured I can do better than the local guys. I have my shop set up in a 20' trailer and planned on going to people's houses to install the tires. I did not realize how much driveway space it takes up before I got it so now I hope to get a website together and offer the best prices and customer service with tire and wheel packages. Bumpers are on the agenda also since all the ones I like cost about $2000.
