Billet Specialties Patriot

What do you think of the new Pro Touring Series from billet specialties. I was looking at the Patriot in an 18" for a 68 camaro.

I like them a lot. And I am sure the quality will be excellent. Billet Specialties is one of the finest wheels we sell.

Re: Billet Specialties Patriot

Most companies charge $400 to $500 to cut and weld 2 wheel shells to make a 12. BS actually makes their own 12" shells (no cutting and wleding is real nice). They are less than cut and welded 12s ($270 up charge instead of $400 to $500), but still cost a pretty penny to manufacturer in small production runs.

We can save you some $$$$ off that list price

Because they have to weld 2 barrels together to make a wide rim.
