LR Direct - Reviews?

Looking at getting sawtooths from them and saw their prices - https://www.lrdirect.com/LR025862-Wheel/

Anyone ever used them? Also, anyone ever used Britpart wheels? Bad idea?

LR Direct has treated me well, every time. Reasonable prices, fast delivery...

No experience with Britpart wheels.

I've ordered stuff on Monday and had it by Thursday - from England to Atlanta in four days - outstanding!

I purchased a tailgate from them that came with a small dent, I contacted and sent pic per their request and they didn't respond. Needless to say I wasn't happy. I was getting parts from all over for my new engine install and ended up using them again a few times and just recently for a bunch of front end parts and they have been reliable and quick, they even substituted a more expensive steering setup when they were out of the one I ordered for no extra charge.

I have an order from them coming tomorrow.

I like them because their shipping is deterministic and they let me choose which parts source (britpart, bearmach, allmakes, LR, etc.) I want. Their communication is also very good.

There are a lot of other great UK vendors out there as well.

They have been good to me and fast on delivery. Only Ashcroft beat their delivery getting me axles from the uk to Texas in three days at no extra cost.

Not sure if these wheels might fit the bill... more local and perhaps a better value:

Thanks all for the feedback, they sound great. VTLANDROVER, thanks for the option, I just don't want to spend that much and the sawtooth is more the style I'm going after

Yep very good, fast and well priced. Just a bit of a battle getting the part numbers from other sources and when there are no pictures it can be hard knowing if you've got the correct piece coming.

Yep, you really need to already know the part numbers you need. Otherwise, they are very well priced and most stuff I literally have in just a few days (SC).

Very good experience. I highly recommend them.

Order the parts Sunday night, will have them on Thursday. Pretty awesome. Cheaper and sometimes faster than stateside vendors.

I have ordered 90% of my parts over the last 9 months from them. No issues what so ever. They even have a US number if you are having issues. I would love to support local(US) sources, but when you get the same part for more than 50% cheaper, you can't argue.
