You guys will see lots more pics. Photography is a hobby of mine.

I'm a member of a local club up here in Minneapolis called Minnesota Sport Compacts. We have weekly meets that I take pics at. Here are a few of them just because I feel like posting a few more pics..... lol

Tintmasters sounds familiar, but I don't know them.

Thanks for the compliments on the pics. I was working with a Kodak Easyshare and finally stepped up to a Nikon D50 SLR camera and my pics look way better now.

I love to shoot pics so you will see more.

The steelies are custom built one-off wheels made to my specs.

They are 15x8" all the way around with a staggered offset. Front wheels are 5.25" backspacing or about 18mm offset and the rear wheels are 4.75" offset or about 5mm offset for extra dish in the back.

You can order them at www.custombuiltsteelwheels.com The wheels are $80 a piece with a $5 charge for custom backspacing. Total with shipping I paid $440 for the set of 4.

They come in black primer and the wheels rust almost immediately. I wanted them in silver but they charge extra for powdercoating so I decided to take the finishing upon myself.

Here is a side by side.

Left is what they look like when you get them, right is after I painted one.


The stock black primer does not seal the wheel against rust. The wheels started rusting within a week after I had them mounted up. They are fine now that I painted them.

I wish they have smoothie centers or at least something with out the little holes, so it would go with my theme, but last thing I've read, they don't have those in 4-100.
There are chrome caps out there for the center hole though.

So these wheels are not hub centric I take it???? They look like a universal center 4-100 & 4-114.3 - Any problems with balance or vibration?

No, they are not hubcentric, but generally with steelies they don't need to be. Alloy rims only need to be hubcentric because of the way they are made.
