Re: Wheel Idea..

So far the only place I've met Jeep people at is the race track in Baytown. It was more of a "I'll be there if you wanna come" type thing. Those were WK1 guys. A few 2014 guys randomly showed up as well.

My best run was a 12.952 @104.76. I definitely had more in it.

3/8th tank of gas. Full weight. + 275lb driver.

I'll let you know if we go again.

Re: Wheel Idea..

Concavo's are the cheapest option that look good at this point besides FR.

I can build a Quality set of Concave wheels with USA forgings and USA hoops only HRE and myself are doing this today. We index and FEA tested just like HRE we are the only place your going to get this done. Please ask the questions when buying wheels and find out for yourself. This is why HRE's are so pricey ours are a fraction of the cost for the same quality. Our wheels may be in fact a bit better quality HRE from what I'm told they indexes to 12/1,000's we index to 2-3/1,000's.

Don't let the Game Over wheel on our website price fool you these are 8-10k wheels anywhere PERIOD!!! They are cut on the biggest most extreme and expensive forging available today. This wheel is only a sample of what we can build I can build any style or size for the same price. You pick the style, size and I will work directly with you to make the wheel of your dreams. No one and I will repeat beat the quality of our wheels for the same price if my prices is beat by anyone on the same wheel they are sacrificing something and not telling you.

I could cut chinese forging's use chinese hoops for dirt money with no indexing or FEA testing. I can not justify selling wheels like this unfortunately and want everyone to understand what you are paying for when buying most wheels. Their is no smoke and mirrors here I tell you exactly what you are getting.

I urge anyone to google search for Cracked spokes on 3 pc. or 2 pc. wheels and see how may companies have wheel failures because their spokes are too thin for the weight of the vehicles every day abuse.

Re: Wheel Idea..

^ Well if I go the wheel route I'll definitely give you a call. There are a few cast designs I wouldn't mind having duplicated in forgings.

As of right now I can't justify the cost of any forged wheels. When I look at forged wheels I see a POF .308 AR-10 with a 20" Barrel and Trijicon TARS optics...the latter of which has the potential to increase in value.

Decisions decisions!
