One-off diamond cut 16v Speedline alloy wheels

Post by Kitch » Tue Oct 06, 2015 8:27 am

It's no good, I can't like these wheels on my car :( The wheels themselves look immense, but they just don't suit it!

So, one mint (and they really are mint....no marks at all) set of Speedlines. They're 6J, were originally ph2 spec but have been dipped, blasted, powdercoated black, diamond cut in places no SL311 is normally diamond cut and then lacquered (that's key, as lots of diamond wheels aren't lacquered and require constant polishing. These won't.)

They don't really work on my car (unless you think they do, and own a red ph2 16v, in which case fill yer boots!):

Tyres are 195/60R14. 2x Michelins with pretty much most of the new tread still left (one has a slight patch of red overspray on from years ago) and 2x Pirelli P6000's, which have about 5mm I think.
Haven't sorted centre caps yet as I was going to wait and decide how to colour them. They'll come with the wheels in the original grey, and I was likely to respray them gloss black as I figured that would work best visually. Obviously you might think different and go silver or chrome effect, so they'll come as a blank canvas.

No buckles, no leaks. Retail price to have this done is about £150 per rim, though they owe me slightly less as I was able to pull off a deal through work. A used set of 16v rims is worth around £150-£200 I think. Open to offers, bearing all that in mind. I can arrange shipping at buyer's cost also.

Cheers

These wheels look really good, they might not suit a red BX but I reckon they would look goon on maybe a silver one or a black one

Hey Kitch!

Would you be so kind and post the pictures of those wheels again, as they aren´t visible any more. Just as a sample for those like me, who wants to diamond cut SL311´s also.

Hi, got nothing to host them on at the moment, but there will still be some pictures floating on the BXC Facebook group if you search me out on there.
