    Anyone make alloy wheels ??

    Is there any1 on here or anywhere i can go to get wheel made to my own designs and specs ??

    Also if this is poss - what are the prices like ??

    My dad done this on his bike a few years back but back then he worked for the company that done it - they since closed down.

    So any ideas guys.

    My dad said about £10 for a set but then he lives in his own little world of thinking i would be doing all the work and getting the material at cheap rates - lol

    Basically after 5 spoke 18's to my own design - about 7.5" wide maybe more - correct offset etc - so somewhere that can machine em from scratch and have a good design team to put my ideas int practice.

    I know Racing Hart make Custom alloys in the US. They are usually around £2000 for the alloys alone !

    Image wheels, they make em to how you want they are only round the corner from me. Rentons BMW from redline has had his rims done there, very good indeed.

    You are looking at around £400 £450 a wheel though.

    that aint bad - i was thinking big money - like maybe double that price. 2k for custom wheels cant be a bad deal - must begin the savings as i got the plans all laid out infront of me

    Dunno if i can keep these hidden until i can afford them though - may make an appearance on here soon - damn excitement

    But it does come down to how complex the design was When I spoke to them about making a smith dragn in a 18" but a genuine split rim, they said around that figure. that isnt very complex. So expect the prices to go up and up and you wouldnt be able to use cheepy tyres as with 2k+ rims the las thing you would use is £100 budget boots.

    Get in contact send em some similar to your design get the price so you know were you stand.
