Yes, both rim and tire were fine. All four are still on there now, briefly now until new offroad wheels and tires go on this week and will eventually sell these.Sad turn of events. Did that wheel/tire survive the crash?
Depending on how insurance plays out, could end up with some "extra" money to build it back better. Sometimes you can get lucky like that.
Yep, I heard good things too. That's who I switched to. Asked 5-6 body shops looking for a painter asked them what insurer was the most cooperative on repairs - three said State Farm, one was a Geico-based shop, and one said "doesnt matter." Three out of five is a pretty good indicator. Apparently SF won't argue against true OEM panels and parts, pays for the good stuff if they're available and pays out quick, at least what these guys found.I've always heard bad things about Geico and progressive, but not state farm if you want to get a way from them.

I'll post pics of the stripped frame. The grease/wax/coating they use scrapes off in the thick areas with a putty knife then wipes off with lacquer thinner - probably 80% of the frame clean was doing that. It did a good job of preventing rust. You're right on everything else being rusted to pits.The frame actually doesn't look all that rusty, the control arms and all the other stuff look pretty cancerous though
buildYou are spot on with contacting seller's politely if you have any issues. I've had pretty much all good success on ebay or wherever using your same method. Ended up with a few free items, and at least replacement or refund on just about everything else.
It's nice to find those rare shops that do some of the more niche work so well. Testing and fixing radiators used to be really common but they aren't treated that way anymore typically.
