Posted 26 January 2010 - 08:20 AM
looking at different sizes thinking 15" x 6" wide would be the size to start out with ,I will work up a price and would like to get this going with 4 sets of 4 or 5 wheels each prepaid so would be making 20 wheels to start off with , would like your thoughts on rim sizes you would want , color and backspacing, also I will be designing the pattern and look ,wondering what people would like

What offset are you thinking of useing. I like the dodge d50 wheels. They tuck nicely in the wheel wells. I think the standard black and white would be fine for colors, maybe red. Some people might go for chrome because they wont need to drill through chrome. 15x5 - 15x6. I like the idea of 14s but that tire size is becomeing anchient history.
14s are still a viable option, there are 4 or 5 different styles and sizes of super swamper tires still available in 14, as well as maxxis bighorns and general AT2's. There are also plenty of good snow tires, street tires, and rally tires still available in 14. I just think if someone is going to be making custom wheels they should consider both sizes, because some folks still want 14s

I think if you could make a 14x6 version of the Daytona wheels, the black ones with the red pinstripe, that would be awesome. AA already makes and sells 15" 4x140 wheels, but no one in the states does 14's.
I know this is an old thread, but are the 15" AA-style wheels even still available?
Allied Armament doesn't seem to be around any more, and the wheels look to have been taken over by Smith's Outfitting Specialties (sosfab.com). I sent them an email back in late August, ready to buy a set of 5, and never heard anything back.
If the AA wheels are out of the picture, and you can reliably produce 15" wheels, there may be a market for them.

there are many options already available.
what about 16x6, i love the look of the mid'profile tires on an ea81 or ea82.
like some 215.65.16s?

If a vendor doesn't have the time to answer questions or to sell their own product, then who really has the time to keep hounding them about it?
I'm sure the AA/SOS wheels are great, but that doesn't do us any good if you can't get 'em. That, in a nutshell, is why I think the market is still open for 4-lug 15" steel wheels.
