As of 4/17/2023 - the group buy remains open to new orders. Nothing has changed from the original Group Buy and orders happen every month. Please PM me if interested in ordering.


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.

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)

Most of the recent ones have been going about 90 days. Certain finishes can take a little longer. Some finishes can be a little faster.

OE teledials are sweet but these up the ante considerably. Just have that lighter more svelt look while heeping the original karma of the style. Like the wheels on my Stelvio Quad!
