Interested in seeing pictures of your RSR finish also. Is this finish the same price per wheel? DO you charge more for wider Fuchs?

I have two sets to send immediately if you could show your RSR finish.

This would be a great demo wheel to showcase the work you do,

Perhaps this this lack of response is an indication of their communication? I also have a set of wheels ready to ship - pending answers & pictures.

No reason to worry. I've been at the SEMA show this week and had to deal with PP corruption of my password for a few days before that. And as DML points out above there is a working phone number for texts and phone calls. You will get your RSR finish photo next time we do that finish which should be in another week or so.

I spoke with Rick on the phone and also emailed with him. He's been very responsive. No reason for worry here.

I would also be interested in RSR finish pics and whether you can do a polished finish similar to what appears in the pics in the original post but in a very high polish(almost like chrome).

RSR finish wheels coming in a couple of weeks. Here is a shot of a polished wheel. (Wheel on left is standard finish) These two sets shipped out today.

Here are pix of the RSR style finish. We call these RSR "Style" because the frost portion is slightly darker than the original finish. There seems to be a trend towards this darker finish. We have two sets of these on real RSR cars including one that has a magazine article done on the car recently. If you elect to use our service please specify lighter or darker finish. We can also do colors on RSR wheels at extra cost.

Glad to hear you are legit, Ernie's Alloys royally burned me (flat out stole my wheels & money) so I am a bit cautious about sending any of my priced Fuchs off, as anyone who knows me, knows that I don't part with any of them.




Can you fix this one?? How much??

Hi Byron
I don't blame you for being careful. I'm 48 years doing Porsches and have seen the hobby go from (in the early days) a group of hobbyists all of whom trusted and traded with each other to an environment where we now have to have a list on each of the Pelican type sites of the latest cheats and scammers.

Your wheel can be fixed if it is not cracked. I would suggest removing the tire and giving it a good exam so you don't waste shipping money on a wheel that cannot be repaired. It would be $110 to repair it in addition the restoration.

I like your photo of the Secret Hoard of Fuchs
Let me know of further needs.
Rick
