Default Hulksta's Carbon Fiber Wheels

Fresh new designs coming, some of the popular designs will stay...
At the moment the aussie dollar is very low which means big savings for guys buying from USD to AUD


Carbon Fibre used is 3K Twill
All my wheels here work with VP hubs.
Wheels do NOT come with hardware allowing you to save money as most change to coloured anyway.
All designs are "glue on"

SET = 4 wheels
Prices for both 1.9 & 2.2


The following prices are for 2 piece design (Front face + rear ring)
Face thickness determines cost....
2.0mm black CF $110aud set

Red, Blue, Silver colour option add $30 per set or only $15 if just the front face in colour.

Following prices are for 3 piece design (front & rear rings + centre face)
2.0mm black CF $165aud set

Red, Blue, Silver colour option add $45 per set or only $15 if just the front face in colour.

Guys have been asking about G10... Yes I do them too.
2piece 2.0mm black G10 front&rear $65aud set


Local (Australian) post $10.50 express
International Postage (standard) $24 tracking
Note- I can regular post but there is no tracking and I do not accept fault for lost postage.
I can post up to 6 sets before affecting cost (I won't be responsible for lost package, i can't control the postal service but i will keep tracking number for you)


PayPal bevear@westnet.com.au (please be sure to read all this info before buying)


All wheels made to order after received payment.. Please note style in PayPal note.


Now you will need screws and spacers.. Here are some cheap spacer options... (you'll need 24 spacers per set of wheels with 6 outer holes)
25mm

For Alloy screws we all know to hit up Fastener Express! Size screws you'll be looking for is 3mm screws by 8mm LONG (Need 48 screws to do a set of wheels)

Some fitting pointers for those new at it
You need to prep the CF for gluing, to do this grab some wet'n'dry sandpaper and scuff up the one side of the CF (side that will glue to the tyres) Use water for this process so there is no harmful CF dust!

Assemble spacers into the wheels first... its way too hard to try putting them together after, you'll be surprised how many ask this.

To glue..
Must clean tyres & rims (even more if they are new!)
Thin CA glue is best.
Rubber bands to hold tyre down on bead.
When you put some glue in, if you watch it you can sometimes use gravity to help it flow around
Watch fingers! I've lost lots of skin to tyres over the years.
Give 5-10min then run around checking you didn't miss a bit, you normally do.

This is a good tutorial

This design is for 2.2
It's a custom singular beadlock, the rear is a glue on ring that glues to the inside sidewall of the tyre to give you lots of room for weights.
This design was writen to the letter of the rules and pushes the limits of the rules.
Face is 2mm CF, beadlock is lexan, rear ring is G10
Cost = Discontinued
Lead time on these is about a week.

They do look great, I've been running them on my berg for a while now, not only do they hold a good bead but they give new life/look to the VP rims.. I'll post up a thread for them tomorrow as I do sell them in sets of 4rings ;)

How are the CF rings coming? These will really compliment the VP wheels.

Ive updated pricing.. With feed ive been given im not offer SS screws and now redused the pricing to sell without screw so guys can use their own (was a common request) Im still offering the 4-40 alloy screws as an option for the guys that dont already have stock of their own.

And if you dont have 4-40 thread... M3 (3mm) will also work for these wheels

Ive also got more designs i'll be loading some time in the next couple of weeks
