any of you guys have any idea of how much would a shop charge to do a set like like these ^

that was mighty sick and very educational. I think it might be cheaper to purchase a certain deep wheel than to do this. I imagine they would char about 80 bux a wheel or so. If I had the money I think I would definitely go this route though!

yea i mean i could just buy diamantes but im really curious about this  Smile

My exact words as I was watching this lol. the extension looked just a little to flimsy haha

You can get charged anywhere from $500-$1000 depending material used and man hour labor usually around here is about $95-$120 an hour.

dang thats too much, im thinking on getting some other wheels tho,
but theyre around 900ish so i might just get those instead of custom steelies

Where you looking at diamonds or going a different route?

The material material wasn't thick enough gauge material to match the wheel thickness, chances are it wasn't the correct type of steel to match the wheel, and he it wasn't done with any sort of precise instruments. It seems like it would ride fine, but don't ever hit a pothole, big speedbump, or expect it to balance correctly.

What kind of wheels are you looking for?
EF4lyf3

Something deep honestly. But I would like something that isn't wide spread. I was looking at replica TE37 but they are hard to find a pair.
4dred6

like TE37v reps? if so u can get the rota grids

Do the spokes stick out a nice distance? Lol the deeper the better. And thanks man I know I can count on you for wheels. Very Happy
4dred6

the spokes wont stick out. i love the way they look







but if you want the same style but with the spokes sticking out you can get some 522s
