I came across these images last week on a German forum. These tuners are so die hard.. they buy old and used wheel, take them apart and buys new rims and barrels to their exact specs.. nothing like us, picking up a phone and ordering the latest and greatest from HRE or Work for premium. These guys are the grassroots.
I love step-lip.. but not any step-lip. It has to be the old school style where the finial lip edge extrudes outward, hence creating another tiny step.. HAWT!!! Take a lesson from these fine examples of old school wheels and maximized offset to refinish and rebuilding wheels.
