Updates:

If new to this thread - the relevant info is in Post 1 (this one) and then starts again HERE


EDIT -
Please PM me Name, Address, Email, phone #, Wheel Color and size. I am not sending this information immediately but some updates may come over email (I think we have many people on here that don't check the forum often).



Where we are:

So, essentially what started as a set of these wheels for myself and one for someone else developed into a group buy opportunity. ~6 months and discussions with two dozen suppliers, factories, etc. I think we've cracked it. :LOL:


The Wheels:

Sample Set Inbound:


Furniture Rim Silver Bicycle part Nickel


Furniture Rim Bicycle part Spoke Silver


Circuit component Cylinder Gas Cable Nickel



Styles:

Gabriella:




Stefania:




Tekla:





Wheel Specs

Wheels are fully forged 6061 Aluminum using a 12k lb press (research other wheels, this is the high end of "best practice" IMHO).


17 x 8 et 30 front
18 x 9.5 et 31 rear

OR

18 x 8 et 30 front
19 x 9.5 et 31 rear

Or

19 x 8 et 30 front
20 x 9.5 et 31 rear

This works out to ~16mm spacer front and ~31mm spacer rear, gives a really nice flush aesthetic.

Pricing

Font Rectangle Line Material property Parallel


Note - Pricing reflects CC payment, inclusive of 3% processing fee


Shipping
will be a little different for everyone but when quoted for your address will be DDP (all taxes included).

Weight

The weight in green is the complete, painted wheel on a scale - I left the modeled weight on there so that you can compare and set expectations appropriately regarding the modeled weights for the other styles

18/19:



The 18/19 set is 13.7 lbs lighter than a set of stock five hole wheels, despite being 1" wider front and rear.


17/18:




The 17/18 set is 8.4 lbs lighter than a set of stock (coupe style) 17/18 wheels, despite being 1" wider front and 1.5" rear.




Finish/Colors


Tons of options (more to come)

This is my preferred setup, regardless of style/aesthetics. The maker I spoke to couldn’t do 18 in 7. Had to be 7.5 minimum. Hope you get what you want. They do look great. Well done John.

You're killing me with temptation- should I have 2 spare sets now?

I wonder what shipping to Australia will be...
This will be my second spare set. I don't think there's a number that's "too many" (though I am probably the last person who should be giving that advice)
