I have build last Year for Raidou (Rainer) a Set of Wheels for his last Wiesmann Project.

click here for pic

The Diameter without Tyre was 35-36mm. With Wiesmann Reartyre (on the Pics seen) the Diameter must be 40 ore 41mm.

Iīve been on Work till 4 in the Morning and have an Idea for the ADV1. This will need a few Weeks. All the Prototypes are Handmade, no CNC or other Machine.

That will be really nice if you make these wheels. But i think that 37-38mm diameter (top) will be the best. Because 40mm are the Jada wheels and they are useless for 1/18 Kyoshos or AUTOarts.....

Thats right RSI, therefor i can use another Tyre to came on 37-38mm. I produce more than 20 Versions of Tyres, so i have almost the right Tyre for the Customer.

I can't decide which of those wheels I would even start with.  Hahaha  They are all excellent wheels.

@Blitz: Yes, thes look also very nice. The Tyres are cool. Havenīt here about it before. Making rims is easy but making own Tyres is a Work for a few Months.

Here are a few new pics from today. Had put the Y Rim on a F430 to show you guys the Diameter.

those look really good! but again there is almost nothing in the USA other than dragster wheels. Im thinking about starting to cast some resin faces of some wheels I have to practice then maybe getting into doing some limited runs of a couple hundred for sale. Ive got all the stuff to cast Im honestly just too lazy. some day hahaha

Those are some nice tires and wheels. Do you have anything that will fit nicely on the concept challengers from HWY61. I want to change the wheels on the cars I'm building, but can't find anything nice. They would need to snap right on because I already have a ton of time into them already.
Right now I only make big drag race tires and wheels, and don't have time to get into making any other kind yet. In a month or so I'll be set up and start to play with making aluminum wheels.

These are just fine: Is it me or the rear wheels have more "offset"????
Posted Image

I always like BBS style wheels, and these are like CSL.

What is needed for someone to make aluminium wheels? Does someone know?

@Got556: The Concave Version will be available next week with a different Setup as the normal V308. It came with differrent Tyres. Front smaller than Back to have a same Look that it have got at 1:1.

@corrupted: For a customer i have put Wheels with a 40 mm Diameter on it. At the Back, the Car must be higher to have a great look.

Sry for the bad Pics

@RSI: For Full Aloy Wheels you need a 3D CNC. That cost a lot. For Aloy Rings you needed a lathe (in German Drehbank). That one cost here 500-1000 Euro. 3D CNC would cost much more than 5000 Euro.
Yes, the Back Wheel have more Offset (negative Offset) as the Front. Thats are modded CSL´ler with small and effectfull differrents.

Michael

I think those look pretty nice on the challenger. You can respond in a PM if you'd like, but what would 50 sets cost? I don't know if you saw the concept cudas I'm making, but the stock challenger wheels look bad. If I have to keep them on it then I will, but if I can come up with a solution then I'd rather change them if it's cost effective.
Yes. those wheels would look much better. Can anyone photoshop those wheels on the cuda and repost it?

Ok.  So I noticed some of my UT BMW GTR wheels are melting (lovely) and I want to replace them.  If I wanted a DIRECT replacement, what size would I need to order from Uli Novak's site?   http://www.modellbau...roducts_id=1248

Also, for reference, could someone tell me what would be a direct replacement if I were to use the tires from a Autoart Gallardo or Kyosho M3 CSL?  The width and diameter of these three examples are what I'm going to base my orders off of.  I wish I was fluent in German too.  Hahaha.

As soon as I get my UT GTR I'll be able to tell you which size to get (mine's still in the mail from the UK and that sucks that yours are melting...hope I don't have that issue).  They appear to be 19's or 20's.  And you'll probably want to go with a 7.5 or 8mm lip in the rear.  As for the Kyosho CSL's I think they are 19's but I can't be absolutely positive on that.

Can you do a side by side comparison pic of the Uli Nowaks next to the UT GTR?  On top of needing some replacement wheels I was also considering getting a couple sets for other projects.  TIA

Hi all.

Does anyone know where I could get a really good set of 1:18 18" multispokes like in these photos?

The ones on the base model (Solido) are really unconvincing and cheap looking.

Thanks  :wavetowel2:

I believe Autoart did something very similar on their plain body Citroen Xsara.  They didn't quite seem like 18" to me but personally that's probably the largest I've seen in 1/18.

I'll take some pics tonight for ya.  The stock UT wheels are still on the GTR but I'll line them up side by side so you can see the height difference and take a "tire" shot so you can see the different widths of the front and rears of each the GTR and Uli's.

Yesterday arrived my S600 and wow...what a big Car. The Wheels, i would make for it look to small for this "Tank", but see yourself:

33-34mm Wheelsets:

To adapt the new Wheels, i destroy a original Rim and cut off till i have only the Pin

Posted Image

Posted Image

to mount deeper Rims, you must cut the Asle a little bit

Next Mod will be a AMG Exhaust
