    I need to sit down in a darkened room and do some sums, as it's possible to order some pretty stupid offset combinations by accident with these
    Just so you know its possible

    Those Forgeline people know how to charge! I think it's safe to say if we do this, it wont be $1600 for a kit



    Looks to me like getting the numbers right for flipping the barrels is essential. As much as people might like dish, this might be a challenge for even the most hardened wheel fans.

    Do the centrelock adapters for the current range of wheels first

    Here you go Ben,

    I wanted to brush up on some Sketchup skills so came up with these as a few ideas. See what the Reactions are

    A variety of PCD to CL adapters, then the wheels would not need to have anything other than a centre bore drilled.

    Be good for track / drift people too, fast wheel changing!
    only main problem i can foresee with cl is if it's not tight there is only one ( big ) nut holding the wheel on istead of 5. if it falls off your fooked.

    oh p.s. you puting in christmas overtime ben?

    Hi Daz

    Can you calculate the offset from your drawing of those rears?

    They look cool, but also like they have to be mental offset...

    I didn't really think about offsets of width's when doing these as I just wanted to mess around a bit with them.

    The one on the far right is near enough 18x13J ET-10, (This wheel is drawn with a 55mm dish and 100mm concaved spokes)

    2nd from the right is 18x9.5 ET-50 (This is drawn with 30mm dish, 75mm concaved spokes)

    The far left image is about 18x10.5 ET+10 which is more realistic for you guys.

    It's the dish combined with the concaved spokes that kills it.

    What are your most popular wheel sizes and offsets you sell and I'll redo them to suit that. Let me know what they are for 9.5J, 10J, 11J 12J and 13J if you go that far.

    I'm guesing for 200's it's:

    18x9.5 ET30
    18x9.5 ET12

    I'm having another night in tonight so I can tweak those designs to what sizes you want without any hassle

    Nice one

    Essentially 18x10 or 18x9.5 ET30 and ET12 are very popular, not all for 200s.

    Also, if you could find a way to make 18x11 ET50 look cool, you'd be a legend

    Fancy attempting the Slipsteam in 18" and concave?

    I've just altered the above design to be an 18x10 ET12 & ET30

    Also done the same design as an 18x11 ET50

    Will post them once they have finished rendering

    What width and offset for the slipstream?

    Slipstream 18x9 ET25 / ET35, 18x10 ET35, 18x10 ET12 if possible

    You need touch up paint?

    Right here we go.

    From left to right
    18x10 ET30
    18x10 ET12
    18x11 ET50 (note the lack of any dish on that one, still concaved spokes though)




    Yeah I need to get some touch up paint, I clipped a kerb on my mint alloys on saturday .

    I'll have a go a sorting the slipstreams out tonight for you

    Can you do me some views of them from other angles please matey?

    Generally the face stays the same for the same wheel but differing offset, the centre just gets moved slightly, I'll grab a pic in the morning to show you what I mean

    Slipstreams are my favourite, and I want Rota to make them BIG, so this will hopefully help with that

    Yeah, will sort the views out now for you .

    The centre part of the wheels moves in or out depending on the offset of the wheel. If you have all the spokes concaved the same across the range then they would all pretty much be nealy flat like the 9J ET35's.

    I've done them the same as how the GTR 8,5J is different to the GTR 9.5J.

    Here's them in a funky red I thought I'd try for a giggle .

    I think we will name it the Daz

    I see what you're saying about the concave etc. It's likely 2 moulds would be made, one for front type sizes and 1 for rear, and a few different offsets from each.

    I am really liking them though - you're a star
