We'll see. I'm planning on double checking them after seeing your post. Those guys at American are less than honest. I've caught then misrepresenting things more than once.

did you ever check your CV's out? customer service with american cv was a joke. was gonna cost me 100 bucks in loss to send em back. so I'll just run em. trying to decide which cv's to sell on craigslist, probably the older ones, run the new ones with the warranty

Yeah. I measured them yesterday. They're 34 mm. I'm running with them and see what happens too. They can warranty them for 3 years running at 22 degrees, too.
