Use Mastercam to program with for best results....

On a positive note I think they will look cool installed. I also think no one would know they were solid aluminum wheels unless told so. Possible shelf queen build material.
This is Rick from SPI Racing Wheels. We have won National Events with our wheels.
-They weigh under 100 grams each. (lightest on the market)
-There is a life time warranty against bending or stripping. (we have been in business 21 years).
-Highly polished, easy touch up with Mothers alum polish.
-$95.00 for 4 wheels, shipping is included.
-We sponsor the race a Diggers in N/C every year. I pay cash prize money to Win, Place or Show with our wheels. $500, $250, and $100 in 4 differant classes.
If your having a local race, contact us. We may jump in with cash in hand.
