    Are they chevy bowties something you asked for custom? How much did the 4 wheels cost all together? What backspacing did you get?

    I actually had cybrfire burn the bowtie rings, then I welded them on ground that off and had them powder coated

    They are spendy. Somthing like $200 ea. from stazworks. I believe he has the prices on his site also. I have around $250 in them but I try not to think about that /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    ooh ic.
    sorry for all the q's but, with staz's custom wheels, do you have to weld the double beadlocks on, or do they already come welded on?

    No welding required. They just bolt together...Look in my members gallery...I've got the install step by step. You can't learn if you don't ask /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Okay, I already seen the pics... I like 'em. Just one more question and I'll take a breather /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    Since you said they just bolt on, if I wanted to take them off I can just unbolt them?

    Yes, when you take the bolts out of the rim halves [not the lug nuts] the 2 pieces seperate. allowing them to come apart. That being said, I havn't done it so I'm not sure what all is involved with that step. I know they won't just fall apart tho /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    did you have any problems instaling the plastic inserts and if not how did you do it /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I tried mine the way john suggested and im a big guy but couldnt do it his way so I used a large tire bar on the outside of the insert and pulled the tire over /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    it took about 5 seconds per insert. very easy to do.

    Thanks,
    It did but only for a little while. It regaind its form by the time I was putting the rims on the tires.

    I'm not sure how wide your rims are but the more width in the rims the more dificult it is to put the insert in. John said 15x10 wide rim was about as much as you can do in a one piece insert. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
