These are some wheels I had chromed last week. I am wanting some feedback on who would buy them If they were availible. Let me know and hopefully we will be able to buy them the next time we need wheels and tires.

Thanks

I would be interested for my sprint. Would they be available thru BRP to mount the tires right away and how much a set?? They would look cool on the sprints. :thumbsup:

Yes, I dont want anything from them. I found the person to do the chroming. But If there is enough interest then I am going to hook Todd up with the chromer. That way when you order tires you can just tell Todd if you want black or chrome. I just thought it would be nice to have an option. I really wish I could show them in person. The pics just dont do it. I will have them at the Dirt nationals. I dont know how much extra they would be right now but I cant see it being alot. I will have alittle more info on that soon. Just keep the feedback coming and let anyone you know that would be interested to come here and post there comments. This will be how I let Todd see the feedback. I will post more soon.

Thanks guys.

True that. I'd get a set, if it dosen't add weight to the wheels. Can't imagine that it does. What is the process for chroming? does he do it with the host and tire already assembled, or do you get the rims and send them to Bishop?

is the chrome just on the outside or all over. if its on the inside the tire /glue will come lose. how many people would blame the mounting.

I'll try to answer everyones Q's. The chroming is the same way they chrome the wheels for the smaller scale cars. The wheels will be available through Todd. The plating will not be on the mounting surface of the wheel. I have not weighed the wheels with the chrome versus the wheels without it but I am sure there is not much added weight.


How this came about was. I wanted a set of chrome wheels for a Oswego style super modified I am building. I wanted to drive it but all I have is a set of aluminum centerline wheels. I did'nt want to tear up my nice wheels. Since no one offers wheels in chrome I decided to find someone that can chrome plastics. He is a very respected manufacturer in the hobby. He said he would help out as best he could and he delivered on that promise. So now that we have seen what they look like I am going to hook him up with Todd so that they can work out the details. Then when you order tires Todd can ask you If you want black or chrome. :) I just wanted people to have an option.

So keep coming with the feedback because that is what Todd is going to be looking at when the time comes. If there is no interest then there is no reason for him to mess with it.

Harry, I am sorry that happened to you. That really sucks.

This is not the same people. This company is in the R/C car business. I cannot give that info right now. When Todd works out what they need to work out then I am sure it will be known then. But I can assure you it's not your guy. Maybe he did that to someone who does'nt live in another state. :mad:
