Anyone Know What Rims These Are?

Okay, so I went in search of these rims, I was told that these were the TechArt, but the ones shown have 4 small rivets between the spokes. Other than that they look just like the TechArt ones. So my question now is, does anyone know what rims these really are? Brand? Make?

Those are either NAD's, TSW's, or Victor Equipments. They all make a version similar, but not identical to the Techart. Happy hunting!

I like those. But they look to much like the ones I currently have. Your tires still don't come out far enough to the edge of the lip. That bothers me too. I preffer these for my next set of rims.

I am trying to see if i can get the lip of the wheel to stick out 1/2" beyond the tire (Just kidding). Those look good, send pictures when they are on your car.

never understood this.

Because whe you say wheels it sounds like your could be talking about the tires also. Wheels as a "whole" entity could include the tires. That's why we say rims and tires instead of just wheels. Breaks it down somewhat.

I must be crazy but I always thought a wheel was a wheel and a tire was a tire.

Rim to Wheel

Times have changed. When I was a teenager in the 60s, the rim held the tire and the entire assembly bolted onto the wheel. That concept seems to have changed and I now hear both terms used interchangeably. But if that's the case, what do you call the round thing the wheel bolts onto?

It's alot like the what constitutes a motor and engine debate.

Thanks

OK, that explains it. The hub is what we used to call the very center of what we called the wheel. You would pop out the small cap of the hub and pack the bearings in grease. I see the vernacular has changed to the entire assembly called the hub.
Thanks for the clarification.

Do you have pictures?

I found these wheels (WORK -RKF) at wheelenhancement.com, but found out they were over $3K for a set of 19s and that's not including tires.

tires too small

Dr Kill
if those are your rims and tires, the tires look too narrow for that rim. Couldnt you afford a wider tire? what size tire is that?

I mean no offense..


by the way do you like them? I was looking at those also, and also the ones in black...

Also did you need a spacer for the back?
