Default Geo's 3PK Wheels

Hey guys, I'm machining some wheels and I thought I'd spread the news. They are made to the stock specs, so the feel doesn't change. The back is machined hollow, so weight is not an issue. They are made of aluminum polished with semichrome paste. I can burn designs in with EDM and I can engrave names, limited to one style of text. It takes me four to five hours to make. Cost is $50. Shipping via US Priority mail is $10. (Or I'll see you at the track and deliver personally) You can Pay Pal me at [email protected] just like an ebay transaction. Lead time is two weeks, depending on how busy. If I'm not swamped, I can turn it around in a week. Email me at [email protected] to discuss your design ideas.

What did you use to do the flames, a sinker EDM. Looks sweet man!
Needs some AE stickers on it and it will be dialed.

Funny you say that Mikey. I had the electrode made to do exactly that but the angle of the checkers demanded that I make a mirror image of what I cut in the wheel. I had the it set ready to go in the EDM machine and for some reason I paused. Sure enough since I cut the same detail in the carbon that I did in the aluminum, it would've miss matched. I stopped and didn't junk the wheel. Still looks good though.
