Had the wheels turned on a lathe to remove rough casting
Didn't exactly turn out the way I wanted them but better than
what they were.

Hey Tex...Looks great , but i hope you didnt disrupt the balance of the wheel. Make sure those puppies are going to balance a tire before you invest more coin in them (like chroming them)...But they look hot!

Didn't want chrome wheels or polished wheels. It's too big of an object to have chromed. I think chrome wheels look tacky. I was going for the machined look. If you look at stock wheels you can see the lathe bit cut,no polishing. Look at new wheels on most factory cars,they have a machined look but are clearcoated. Thats what I wanted,for some reason every machine shop insisted on polishing......
They cost me $325 for both wheels but now he wants $200 a wheel. I guess there is one good thing,all"s I have to do is use a SOS pad to get the finish back.....
