Wheel build/refurb thread
« on: November 28, 2015, 10:07:18 am »
Hey guys/girls,

Just thought i should share my expensive addiction with the Klub

I have come to be known as a tiny bit of a wheel whore as my collection is usually never smaller than 7-8 sets at a time...

Will just be using this post as a dumping ground for all that goes on with that for anyone else who may be interested.

Some sets better looking than others but its all about personal preference at the end of the day....

Slight update after a couple of years. I took a bit of a hiatus from wheels. Lasted a week or so  ;D
Lots of sets refurbed for both myself and friends

This is the current project.

BBS RC090
17x8 ET20
5x120




Looking into new ways for effectively stripping the baked on road crap inside the barrels as they will be painted anyway.

Feel free to PM me for cost effective refurb options on your 2/3 piece wheels

this will be a good thread.

do you re-use the fasteners on the multi-piece wheels ?

the new California has nice wheels for a modern car

Most of the time the fasteners can be reused. It depends on the condition of the threads and if they have started to rust. Luckily this set looks to have held up well.

Most Ferrari wheels are simple yet look good. They get it right most of the time
