Needless to say, keeping timelines are not stazworks specialty, but he's bidding and building for an 8 milling dollar wheel contract with the military so i can understand him delaying $800 orders because he's basically bidding for his retirement fund.
So they're almost done. The centers are cut, pressed, finish machined, and at least tacked into place in the shells. I think they're actually finished welding but need a trip for sand blasting and primer, and then to the painter (decided to go silver... i'd have gotten them a hair quicker if i went black, but oh well... black was very tempting because i think it looks pretty sweet on silver, but he recommended silver.
I'm tempted to have them powder coated, but I'll see how the look painted first since it's only $10 a wheel and paid for a long time ago. If i do powder coat, i'll probably get them re-done along with the rear bumper (maybe in dark grey for some 2 tone action). The bumper is now on the truck and lookin' very nice i think... (the black finish on the bumper is, however, a little thin/sub-optimal for my tastes and thus the thoughts of having the rims and bumper powdered together run through my mind.
Anway, that's the info as it stands. I gotta get some pictures of the bumper posted. Hopefully the wheels will come out looking something like this... it was one of my last iterations... yikes!
Like the title says.
Im looking for the biggest tire size I can run on my factory 18" wheels without a lift but still retain my factory rear tire cover.
I hear 33s would work but might make contact. I'm not opposed to running spacers if needed.
Anyone with pictures of 33s or whatever they...
Hi guys. Need help.
Not long ago I had to replace the center drive shaft rubber boot as it was torn. Unfortunately I didn't give it a serious attention and just replaced the rubber and installed the shaft. But later found out that it has to be balanced. Its obvious that the balance is lost...
Clearing out my garage, am putting up for sale the above-referenced wheels.
Here’s a link to my ad on Craigslist’s. Would prefer a pickup in SF Bay Area.
