Im gonna build this wheel...Comments??

Im going to have these built in a Gun Metal finish. If they do well then I will build them in Silver and Chrome as well. I placed the order today and it should be about 12 weeks out before the are done.

Yes this wheel was built by Euromax (Primax)...They are discontinuing the cast and style from their line but the cast is still available to me.

Price...Its important and I expect them to be the same or close to the cost of my Replica wheels. So these painted wheels should be $170ea shipped free anywhere in the lower48.

18X9
+36MM offset
63.90MM Hub Bore
5-4.25 bolt pattern
GUN METAL finish

Nice looking wheel! I know who I'm going to when I'm finally ready for wheels!

Mods? Do the ones in the garage waiting to go on the car count?

Many thanks to my fellow Veterans; I am honored to be a part of your ranks.

IMO any Darker finish wheel would make the Gold Pop. Deff not chrome and Silver would just be kinda boring with the Gold. All of course my own personal opinion. Sounds like you are already leaning toward a Dark finish wheel.

Looks just like the Saleen Heritage wheel. Nice rim.

These new wheels wont be available until Maybe late December. Production is scheduled for November.

The 03 Cobra wheels are on the boat and should be entering customs in a few more days. I expect them available to ship very soon.

Those wheels are exactly what I have been looking for. I think the Gun Metal would look insane with the Atlantis Green SHO color I am going with on my bird. I can't wait for C-mas!!!

Any chance you could get a gunmetal center cap too?

That's too bad. That chrome center cap is going to stick out like a sore thumb on an otherwise dark car. Maybe I can get it powder coated or something.

powder coating is not always the best answer anyways. In this case just matching the color of the wheels with some rattle can would do the trick as well as anything.

Man, I really like these wheels. I don't usually comment on them, even if I kind of like them....but I really like this particular wheel, and it looks absolutely evil in gunmetal.


Did we have pricing of these wheels somewhere in this thread?

Yes, I hate my Lincoln. Ask me about it sometime.

Too early to commit to a price as I dont do that until I get the freight bill. They will likely be in the same range as the other painted Replicas we have built which are $170ea shipped anywhere in the L48.

I don't see these wheels available on your site. But there is a pic in the header of the site. Did this pan out?
