Question Custom CNC'd Wheels?

Not sure where to put this, so I'll put it here, I suppose. I was wondering if anyone has had a set of wheels custom made, you know, CNC'd out of aluminum. And know how much it would cost. Or just plain know how much it would cost. They don't make the wheels I want really. But quite a few people I know would want them.

You are watching too much American Chopper.......................

Getting a set of custom wheels would take a pile of dough. The machine work is just part of it. there is the design, drawing, computer programing etc........................

Just because I want some one off wheels you say I've been watching too much American Chopper? Yyyea, alrighty then. I accually haven't watched it in months since theres nothing of interest on that show. I just want some one off wheels, I don't want shiny "bling bling", I'm gonna want them dull. And i know it costs alot, I'm just wondering how much, unless you have a better idea about how to get some custom wheels just like I want fabbed up, then CNC is the way to go.

I just said that because they make it seem so easy..................

I was just saying that it is a lot more complicated and expensive than they let on.

Oh I know its exspensive, but if I get the look I'm going for, then its worth it. Sorry about that, it just came off to me kinda badly. Thats what I get for surfing the forums tiredly.

Jesse James gets $25,000.00 for one offs. Chip Foose wheels....if I remember right...was mentioned at about $7,000.00 per wheel so you are looking at almost $30,000.00 tax and all. And I don't imagine that includes center caps and lugnuts.

Why isn't there a fainting smilie? Wonder how much they'd be if I could get about.. oh.. 15 people to buy 15 sets, maybe more. We really do need a fainting smilie for times like this though, this one "" doesn't convey my feelings well enough

Contact someone at Boyd Coddinton Wheels or Colorado Customs and ask. If it's something that they may want to stock after the design is done they may cut you a better deal. It's possible if they think it's something that will sell. If you get a larger order (like 8-10 sets) that gives an indication that it's a sellable design for them. Of course they wouldn't be one-offs if you do that and they start listing it as a design, but Colorado Custom has a lot of designs that are made to order. Main thing is can the design be done on their machinery without a lot of extra work? Most wheels are done on a rotary forge. I think the Colorado Custom site has pics of the process.

Well.. the thing is it'll sell a good few sales, but its a limited audience, unless someone else wants to put them on a car I didn't intend them for. I was accually going to get them made for 1st and 2nd gen Taurus SHOs. A larger version of the stock rim by one or two plus sizes. So yea, its a limited audience, but theres lots of them that want them pretty badly, so I dunno really. Other people could like them I would think, its just gotta grow on ya
