New wheels...for a new car?
Permalink  
 


So I broke multiple spokes at Barber (due to high cornering speeds) and then I broke more at Cocoa Beach (due to the course being as smooth as the surface of the moon) so it was time for a change.

I started collecting pieces and have assembled what are possibly the most bulletproof set of wheels possible.

12 gauge, 48 spoke, double wall, disc brake, with hybrid ceramic bearings. They spin smooooth on those bearings and run very true thanks to a friend who laced and trued them for me.

I am planning a new car for next season, but these will fit my current car if I don't get the new one done on time.

Nothing like new parts to rekindle your Electrathon fire.IMG_20170707_155543005-2304x1296.jpgIMG_20170605_192853360-2304x1296.jpg

Looking great, are you going to use these super wheels for the rear also?

I am indeed. I have a non-brake wheel with all other specs the same for the rear as well.

Awesome!
Been searching for a 48H, disc-ready hub to no avail; care to share which manufacturer makes such goodness?

There are a couple manufacturers that have them, but they are pricy.

Or

But what I did was buy these...

 

Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/262936549752

And machine them out to accept my desired bearings.

Thanks heaps Archer; I had my own designed and wasn't far from getting manufactured, but... well, $$$ and the unknowns!
That's helped nicely, cheers!
