Footwork Autosport was first founded in 2005 selling mainly suspension and brake components. Our company founder has been serving the aftermarket performance industry since early 1990s introducing and distributing popular Japanese performance parts brands such as Blitz, TEIN, Mazdaspeed, Rallyart, Tom’s Racing and many other reputable brands from the Japanese tuning scene. Footwork Autosport took a break for few years, only serving specific clients only.
When our parent division Weds Wheels North America was established in 2012, Footwork Autosport once again re-opened to the public, this time as the official online store for Weds Wheels North America where we sell replacement part and accessories that pertains to Weds and Super Star wheels. Now with stronger access to many JDM and other quality components from around the globe, Footwork Autosport is now going back to our roots by expanding our product line and offering quality aftermarket parts from Japan and other countries.
Backed with our friendly, experienced, and knowledgeable staff; as well as our efficient operations and service; we are here to earn your business with professionalism and honesty! Thank you!
Why should you buy from Footwork Autosport?
1. All Orders are hand reviewed by our sales staff when it begins processing.
By manually reviewing your order, we can catch any mistakes and errors before your product ships out. If we suspect you made an error with your order quantity (ex. ordered qty 1 instead of 4) or you've selected an item on backorder, we'll email you to clarify before shipping out/processing your order.
2. Nearly all in-stock orders will ship same or next day after you place your order (excluding weekends). We don't rely on drop-shipping!
Most online stores do not actually carry all of their "in-stock" product in their warehouse. Some of this product may be "drop shipped", where a product ships directly from the manufacturer and not from the retailer you're buying from. In a drop ship scenario, the manufacturer's inventory is not always what you'll see on the vendor's website, so the product that might be "in-stock" might be out of stock with the vendor, leading to an unexpected surprise when you have to wait for the product to go back in stock. Since all of our products are rare parts that are purchased from the manufacturer overseas, we cannot dropship and we stock all of the parts here locally.
3. Secure packaging minimizes shipping damage
Shipping accidents do happen, so we take our best measures in order to reduce them. Before the package leaves our hands, we inspect each product for damage. Larger/fragile items such as aero components are re-boxed into a new box with better packaging materials to prevent any warping/cracks/bends.
4. Rare Japanese parts without the exorbitant shipping from Japan, and no surprise shipping bills!
For parts that aren't stocked at our warehouse that are marked as special order/backorder, we'll provide you with an estimated lead time from the time when you place your order. We get regular container shipments from Japan and your item will be added to the next available shipment. The only shipping you have to pay is from our Torrance, CA warehouse to your doorstep.
While some of our competitors may have a lower shipping cost at checkout, these shipped from Japan parts will often have separate billing charges that occur after your product ships that come from the shipping companies themselves as it is marked "bill to recipient", leaving you with the true cost of the shipping. As our products are stored locally, we ship your product using Fedex, USPS and truck freight (for some large aero) without any surprise bills sent to you from the shipping company.
5. We ship worldwide!
