Wheel have signed a separate purchase agreement, in which case the separate agreement shall govern.

Customer agrees to pay all applicable sales taxes for all sales in the State of California. On any sales of merchandise to be delivered outside the United States of America, Customer agrees to pay all duties, tariffs, taxes (including sales taxes, GST, VAT, etc.), brokerage charges and similar charges regarding importation of goods (collectively, “Import Charges”) that may be imposed thereon. If Customer does not pay such charges directly, Customer agrees that L.A. Wheel may collect such charges by any legal means from Customer, and authorizes L.A. Wheel to charge any credit card or account furnished by Customer for the full amount thereof. Any order returned due to Customer’s failure to pay Import Charges will be subject to a restocking fee and a charge for roundtrip transportation of the goods as well as any Import Charges paid by, or billed to, L.A. Wheel.
3. Shipping and Handling.

4. Title; Risk of Loss.

5. Limitation of Damages and Liability.
L.A. Wheel shall not be liable to Customer for any special, incidental, consequential or punitive damages, or for any claim by any third party. Customer agrees that for any liability related to the purchase of Products, L.A. Wheel is not liable for any amount of damages above the aggregate dollar amount paid by Customer for the purchases under this agreement. Cast aluminum used on wheels is, by its nature, very porous and can show some pinprick pitting or visible pores, depending on the OEM’s casting material and process. Using our process of copper plating and hand polishing we can often remove or mask most of the pitting and pores, however depending upon the casting of the part and its condition when we receive it, it may not be possible to remove/mask all the visible pitting and pores. Pinprick pitting or pores which we cannot remove or mask are not chrome defects covered by the warranty which justify return of wheels without a restocking charge.

Wheel’s shipper (or upon installation at our office if installed by L.A. Wheel). Title and risk of loss for merchandise returned by a customer (under paragraph 9 below or in an exchange transaction) remain with Customer until received by L.A. Wheel at its office. This agreement and any sales hereunder shall be governed by the laws of the state of California, without regard to conflicts of laws rules. Customer agrees that the exclusive place for jurisdiction and venue over any dispute disputes, claims or causes of action involving this Internet Site or this agreement, or involving or related to any auction and/or sale by L.A.
