thoughts on custom 3piece rims
A buddy and my are looking into starting a small scale rims production company because we feel there's no real competitor for Rotiform in the JDM sportscar scene.
Everyone is rocking volks or works and we thought we'd shake things up a bit by making "affordable" cast 3piece rims to personal specs including lip color, finish and offset.
We're still in the orientation phase of the startup, visited some aluminium casting factories and had contact suppliers of BBS, OZ and Schmidt rimbarrels.
And now we'd like to get some input from you guys on what you'd like to see and willing to pay for proper rims.
At the moment we're looking at a retail price of aprox €850 per rim or €3250 a set, built to personal spec and powdercoated in any RAL color.
With pretty much every PCD, ET and J value you could want in 18" or 19".
Here's a render of the first design we've made and is pretty much production ready after passing all stress, tensile and tear simulations.
What are your thoughts on the design, pricing or any other aspect?
the design looks good, but still a little pricey. although i have no idea what the overhead is, so it could be a good price. Good concept man
noone have any thoughts about the subject?
Design looks ace but im with young gunna, prices still seem a little high @ $850 per rim, thats £542 over here in the UK. £2168 is a lot of dough for wheels, but again, i don't personally know the overheads.
I'm not hating by any means but when you say affordable and then drop numbers like $4000/set...something ain't right
I could go out and buy a set of rays/works/volks for $1000 less than yours
because we'd only be making in small series 850 isn't a whole lot more than the production costs.
But I can see what you mean on the steep prices, guess it's because prices here are way to high to start with. Volk/rays/works go for 1k a pop over here when bought new.
