WELL DONE, wheel man! Has the dust settled enough to determine a production "go-live" date? Any thoughts on pricing?

Jeff,

One of the most important things to me is what the wheel weighs.

I personally would like to know what the 17x9 and 17x11 for a 1976 930 with no spacers would weigh?

Any chance of taking a measurement at some point? Thanks...

Wheels are looking great!

That 17x9 shown weighs 18.5lbs. Typically a 3 piece wheel goes up in weight .75 to 1 lb per inch of width above that.

We may pocket it a bit more on the back side to get another half pound out or so.

Cheers

Yeah anything to keep the weight down that doesn't hurt longevity is a great idea...what is the weight of the lightest kodiaks you make in this size for comparison...any idea?

17x9 are around 17-17.5lbs usually.

If we make this fuch to clear stock 911 brakes we would easily knock at least 1 pound out of it.

Cheers

The center is machined from a forging the same way that is common for quality aftermarket 3 piece wheels.

Cheers

Wow! Love the black center wheel shown above and I really want a set of 9s/11s for my 930. I didn't see anything on your anticipated pricing or dates of availability???

Great work!

I think there is a wait though. These guys post here in the forums so perhaps they'll chime in and let you know.
