    Wheel Kicking...

    Hi All I'm looking for something more interesting that my standard D90s on my 944S2 (late offset, so no fuchs or deep dishes ) ... What have ye? I think I want to stick with 17", but will go to 18". I quite like the look of the Cup1s and Cup2s, as well as the mesh style centres on BBS and Simmons wheels. Speedlines look great, and I love the set of RUF wheels on 'Tree at the moment but $6500 is too rich for me. I'm not a big fan of the Boxster "twist" type rims on 944s though. I know Cam has Cup reps and 17" fuch reps to fit late offset, but I'm going to fish here first. So anyone looking to unload a set of rims, please fee free to PM me - but I think my top dollar would be around the $2k mark with some flexibility depending on tyres etc... ETs to fit late 944s are around 52 for fronts and up to 47 for the rears (all depending on width of course). I'm in Port Mac, but can take a drive or cover transport. Cheers John
  3. Just wondering those of you with the big gun exotics that most of us dream of... Or those with just an expensive or beautiful set of wheel rims!! Who and where do you go to get tyres fitted? I just spent a $1000 refurbishing me fuches and buying new wheel nuts and I'm paranoid of getting gouged or scratched!! I had a bad experience with rough-head tyre boy changing tyres on a non-pcar of mine a few cars back, whacking the wheel wrench on my rims, scratching, gouging my rims!! Arrghhh!! I ripped into the poor bob jane tyre manager at the time and decided not to ever go back to a run o' the mill tyre place again. Do you flip em a lobster (a 20) and say "be careful mate" or ask for the manager to do the work and not the rasta-haired tattooed hulk with the wheel wrench between his teeth?
  4. Hi all, I'm moving overseas for a couple of years (just planning on storing the car while I'm away), but need to divest of a few things that I've had in the garage. Starting with... 4x Simmons rims, to suit 911SC or Carrera - PRICE CHANGE> $1000 Rears - 16x8 Front - 16x7 I've used these for SuperSprints at WP, SMP, etc (maybe 8 or 10 times?) on a 1980 911SC. Rims are used but no issues with them, no cracks or damage aside from the usual scuffs, grime etc. Fitted with Toyo R888's, 225/45 and 245/45, approx 70%(?) tread left. Comes with 3x Simmons centre caps, 2 in perfect condition, 1 fair to poor. Pickup from Bronte 2024. cheers Al
  5. some pics of my wheel rebuild. Started off with a egg in my tyre and some how a new set of rubber has turned into a full wheel rebuild haha. A good friend of mine did most of the leg work with these... i just get to post the pics. I'll call him out soon! Scrubbed 20 years of crap off the inners and sent the dishes off for polishing. of course nothing is easy ... had some stretched bolts so I got all new hardware... and of course being the older gen wheel it uses a 10mm and not 8mm. I was hunting for gold but couldn't get any in the old sizing so I made the call to paint them all gold candy over chrome. coming together ... if only I could run this dish lo!! So I get these bad boys back tomorrow.... but here is a teaser shot I got from the wheel builders after all torqued back up. I like gold!!
  6. Hi, Any recommendations for a place to get rims polished and anodised in Sydney I have a set of 17-inch Euromaster Fuchs and wanted to polish the unpainted machine-finish parts. Any help will be appreciated Thanks Andrew
  8. Topic: How to clean wheels during your maintenance wash. Needed: 1. Hose with a decent amount of pressure 2. A non-acidic wheel cleaner (eg Duragloss All Wheel Cleaner, Autoglym Acid Free Wheel Cleaner, P21S Wheel Cleaner, Wolf's Brake Duster) 3. SAFE Wheel brush (or perhaps a selection of them) and a spare Microfibre wash mitt (eg Daytona wheel brush, Vikan soft brush, Wheel Woolies) 4. Bucket of water (even warm-medium hot water if possible) (If you want to clean your splash guards, then use a diluted multi-purpose cleaner) Procedure (can be removed or still mounted to the vehicle): 1. After rinsing, take your dirty wheels and apply your favourite non-acidic wheel cleaner to the wheel. Make sure you include the tighter areas including in between spokes, inside the barrel, wheel nut areas and calipers. 2. Let the wheel cleaner sit for 2-3 of minutes. Some solutions turn red or change colour which means they are working in with the dirt. Others don't. 3. Use your safe soft bristled wheel brush. The Daytona Speed brush is fantastic because it has soft bristles and rubber parts so it will not mark or scratch your wheels. Get inside the spokes and in the barrel with the brush. Your brush should also be able to clean the calipers. 4. Use the microfibre mitt to clean the face and any other areas that you may have missed. This is where you can also use another sponge or brush to clean the splash guards. 5. Simply rinse off and dry the wheels. You may notice the surface rust on your rotors. The next drive should fix that problem. TIPS: - Let your brakes cool down before washing. You don't want to risk damaging your rotors - If need be you can apply a light mist of spray wax on your wheels for that added shine and protection - If your exhausts are dirty, use the wheel cleaner & wheel brush to freshen them up (doesn't apply for carbon fibre or ceramic exhaust tips) - Frequent cleaning (once every week) will restrict heavy contamination - If you end up sealing your wheels with a quality sealant, then use pH neutral car wash when cleaning your wheels We've taken a few before, during and after photos of some of the wheels we've cleaned. No other magic tricks, just the same technique as discussed here.
