Hey James over at Colorado Custom is offering a 20% off MSRP on their wheels. As many of you Colorado Custom manufactures a wide selection of sleek, real quality aftermarket wheels/steering wheels. This Group Purchase will be a great way to bring the price down to a more affordable level, comparable with that of some of the other popular wheel manufacturers. You can custom order your size and backspacing and is one of the few companys that sell wheels over 10 inches wide at reasonable prices. [img]smile.gif[/img]

We need 5 people to qualify for the discount. We have 2 so far.

Let me know at [email protected]

Thanks, Chris

Even at 20% off, still WAY to rich for my blue collar blood.

cfunk...nice car! You know Vintage wheels sells the same style wheels as yours but bigger! 18's in that same classic Ralley style would look killer IMO! -c.

Thanks but man but don't start with me on new rims. I just got done putting new rims and tires all the way around.

There is NO money in the budget for 17's or 18's right now, as much as I would like.

Not knocking CC's rims, just the pricing made me go bugger for a minute or two, I am OK now.

Unhappy

Ok, I contacted them and offered to furnish to design from my 14" x 7" and 14" x 9" Fenton slotted mags b/c I wanted a modern 16" or 17" wheel that was "spot-on" like them!!

Well they wanted $4,000+ for the set so I politely thanked them and said I knew they made GREAT wheels, but that at that price, they were WAY OUTTA MY LEAGUE!!!!!

That's all!! pdq67

pdq67, was this quote recently because their prices have come down since last year. An 18x12 last year cost almost $1k now its about $750...$600 with the 20% off(Group Purchase).

$2150 for the set in my case(with Group Discount)is not too bad IMO. For 18x8's and 18x12's.

I'll be buying 18x12's very soon, but I don't like anything that CC offers. The price is great if they have what you want.

For me, it's down to Budnik and Fikse. I talked to Group A Wheels about Simmons and ROH, but after the way they treated me, they won't be getting any money from me.

Chris, that depends on how much I narrow the rear end. I'd like NO MORE than 6" of backspace.

Yeah I'm in the same boat myself...I'm going with anything between a 4-6 bs on an 18x12 wheel..and will shorten the 12 bolt to accomodate. The difference is not much but I've been beating myself over weather to go with a 4,5, or a 6in. backspace. I really like a deep aggresive dish, but dont want the spokes to get lost amongst all that dish. I still want the spokes to show from kind of closeup. You got to remember that BS is calculated from the inside lip to the mounting flange...but for example you go with 6 in BS on an 18x12 rim- that doesn't mean you'll have 6 inches of a nice deep dish...the thickness of the hub/spokes take away from the remaining 6 inches. According to Colorado Custom the hub/spokes of the 'LAzears' I'm ordering are about 2 inches thick/wide. That would leave me with about 4 inches of a front dish(1.5 inches of it would be that little lip & step-up on the outter diameter of the rim).

Yes, it was a while back so apparently they have tooled up to go after this market...

Too late now b/c my Pony-car, "Bullitt's" are on my car!!! And at right at $600/set for the silver ones from Summit at the time, a real bargain to say the least!!

Guys...Vince spoke to James over at CC and James is offering 25% off now! Take advantage while the offer is on the table. Tell James your part of Chris & Vince's Group Purchase from Pro-Touring.com.

Later, Chris
