Nice work, BUT I would not paint the mounting surface as it's very easy to get an uneven not flat surface and paint is not what you want on a area like this. Paint is not that hard, bolts can come loose. Machined surfaces should never be painted (or at least only a mist), especially on rotating parts like Hubs, Brakediscs etc... A very little amount can lead to imbalance at the outer diameter of the rim

Hey Roland, it may not be easy to see but the hubs are mounted last so the only mounting surface is the back side. One of the pictures shows the adapter ring all taped up with only the exposed edge to be pained.
After the bolt issue we had a productive conversation on how best to proceed. It was decided that the wheels needed to come apart and all the old silicone removed. Each piece would then be inspected then prepped for paint. That was where they were in the process when these pictures were taken. After the final paint we will re-assemble with locktite, torque, silicone, then allow to cure over the weekend before mounting the tires. Pretty much the same methodology used when building engines. Things are always a lot more involved and take a lot more time than the final product might convey. I like one and done, not doing things twice, but sometimes you don't get it your way, I'm exited now to see how they look on the car painted!

Oh hell yes !!

Got the wheels back from the painter today - all I can say is WOW!!
It was well woth the effort tearing them down, repairing everything, painting each piece, then re-sealing.

Master mechanic Wayne at the balancing machine. The wheels had been balanced at the wheel shop but I always have Wayne re-do, and they are always improved on!




The second set of bolts fit PERFECT.




Front Shot - nice deep dish, perfect offset. Still don't know who made these wheels but the center section has a Porsche part number for a J16 Fuch.





Cannot wait to get these bad boys mounted! Stay tuned!

Stunning wheels. What color and type of paint? I'm assuming single stage two part urethane?

Thank you! The color is the same as the car, charcoal gray metalic. I love that color and was so happy to find a slant in that shade of gray. Don't know the details on the paint type, I trust the wheel restoration shop to use whatever is proper. This is the second set they have done for me in this color.

They're On!

Got them mounted up this morning, YES!
The spacers we made were spot-on. Wheel fits perfect in the well and nothing rubs even when on boost. Tires do feel a lot different than the Pirelli 345's but I was expecting that. Wheel spin is gone now which I miss. These tires are drag radials that have much more sticking power than the P-Zeros. Took 'er for a long ride this beautiful morning.

Next up: Engine Mods, woo hoo!

You are going to need some serious ft-lbs to smoke those. Do you have a LS diff?

Brian,
Your wheels fit just right...good job! As for your exhaust tips I want to do the same thing. Is it a single exhaust split to twin right at the rear valence? Does it have a muffler or is it a zork pipe?

Thank you all, I am so stoked!
I just kept getting in deeper and deeper with these wheels trying to get it just right and wasn't sure it would all work. Man it did and I really like it. Looks better in person than in the pictures. You couldn't add a mm anywhere, they are spot on in fitment. The 345/35-15 Pirelli's would barely rub on the inside in a hard corner due to the tall side wall. These will not as the wheel is flush with the tire. This 315/12.5" combo has a section width 1/4" more narrow than the 345/12.5" combo and that made all the difference.

Mike, the slant has a prototype muffler mounted with my GT3 tailpipes assembly and our custom full wrap valance. Looks like this one:

Thanks guys, yes the GT2 tailpipe assembly is just one of our tailpipe configurations. The systems are modular, you pick the muffler body (Street, Hooligan, or Outlaw) and add the tailpipe assembly of choice (Single Out, Dual Out, GT3, Center Out).

Yokohama 345/35-15

Making room on the shelf for my "old" 12x15 Fuchs with 345/35-15 Pirellis so these Yokohama 345/35-15 cores need to go. Before I throw them in a dumpster I will see if they may be of use to anyone who needs them as rollers or maybe a coffee table. They are completely worn out (by the Red Rocket) and to my surprise one of them had a nail in it!
If anyone here wants them I just need $75 for the pair to cover shipping conUS. If not that's OK as they will be turned into electricity by our local recycling plant.
