He might have dished it wrong since not all frames have the same offsets...

oh so different frames have different dishes? that makes sense. so bascially dish it towards the casette 1 inch and i should be fine?
I dunno, just look up the frame online. I'm sure it says somewhere. But in essence that's all you really have to do just got to know the specific amount.

Did you bring in just the wheel? If so take it back with your bike and have them take a look at it.

It's relatively easy to adjust dish a moderate amount but 1.5 inches is a lot. All you have to do is loosen the spokes a quarter turn on one side and tighten a quarter on the other with the wheel on the bike. Go all the way around the rim loosening and then go around once tightening. Repeat until the dish is good.
