Had a customer order some wheels that have a custom offset and a little different look.

I started out with this....



Moved on to this....


And of course I needed a little of this....


That goes in this....


Backs are done and measurements fit in the specs...


Fronts are done, still a little rough...


After a little trimming on the lathe and some polishing they look like this...










Just another set of Eritex Inc wheels heading out the door

Such pretty work. It almost makes you forget how wonderfully functional your beadlocks are.

Wow Those are some really sharp looking wheels! They're almost too nice to get dirty.

Depends on if you like the offset he had.


I can do most anything, just depends on how much you want to spend

I think you should whip up a big batch of them for the rest of us newage/berg guys...try and get the price reasonable. You know they'll sell.

Not sure how well these are going to fit quite yet. I did the measuring quickly, and I'm half blind in one eye and can't see out the other.

Robb has been the first Newage/Berg customer to contact me. If I see interest, I will not turn money down

Well, I got a little aggressive on the backspacing measurement, and with standard hexes, they will rub the knuckles. Easy fix, and always easier to widen than to narrow. And also, when I get some straight axles on the rear, it can run a little narrower than the front.

Got the fronts thrown on today as I was playing with clocking the axle.....................and as far as they look, for once, I am actually speechless.

Thank You Gerame!!!!
