I wondered about black wheels yesterday - had to change the colour to see what design I was getting, before changing it back. Didn't really mind though.
Anyway, if you buy a Rat Loader, can you still add the different beds, bonnets, fenders etc at LSC?
Any LSC option will remain. The mistake that has been made is in the string of vehicle data that contains the stock values of certain vehicles when they are spawned/bought from the website. Looks like some programmer at R* was drunk or passed out, kept pressing 00 and reset all values to 0.
Why this happend: Otherwise the topless and hard top version of cars, would remain to spawn with the random roofs after being bought. However they stopped that random body value to shift between 0-255 to just 0 and thats why people shouldn't even try getting alternate vehicle versions right now. Its all locked to 0 like a topless car. So don't spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for alt versions of vehicles right now, just wait until its patched.
Don't even bother trying to get an alternate version of vehicles, because R* has locked the values. This includes:
And pretty much any other vehicle that has un-moddable parts that are not available in LSC.
