I would say exotic wise, the Kyosho E46 BMW M3 CSL and the UT BMW GTR are pretty safe choices.  Can't remember what the CSL wheels were based off of but the GTR's wheels are BBS.  Those are pretty classic Euro wheels.  I'd play with a few diameters and offsets.  You'd have plenty of orders just in those two...especially in Aluminum.

Yeah I would love some quality BBS's in the states. I could think of a few wheel types that would probably be popular and be relatively easy

Thanks for the input. If you have pics to go with the names that would be great. My exotic collection is very limited so I'm going to have to invest in some cars also.

Corrupted,

W/out forgoing aluminum, if you would just mold those CSL wheels or BBS LM's or LM-R's, or the likes and mass produce them I'm guessing you would sell a crap ton.  I could be wrong but I highly doubt it.  Heck just make the faceplate resin, use your aluminum barrels/lips, and you could sell them at $30 to $40 a pop all day long.  German guys are selling them for 25 to 35 euros on top of shipping from Germany.  What's that work out to? $50 USD or so?  I'm just saying that I think you would have a very nice corner in the US aftermarket wheel section for 1:18's.

I don't want to hijack the thread from corrupted, but I'll be making the two aforementioned wheels together with 8 other designs. They should be available by the end of February. I am just in the process of setting everything up.

BBS LM and the CSL wheels are your best bet, but if you could put CL63 AMG wheels to that, oh my...

I want to post here something important fot all custom makers. Some time ago, i wanted turbochargers in 1/18 scale for a project of mine. Corrupted is the man for this part (and for many other parts too). Before this, the most successful turbo i had seen was at the Nissan 350Z Nismo biturbo from Muscle machines. and my luck was there: Corrupted had copied this particular turbine. So i ordered 10 parts and i proudly post a photo after i painted the turbo:

I kinda got offtrack on it for a while with car builds and parts orders. Also started some new products that have taken a lot of my time lately. I'll be back on them shortly.

Just finished another type of wheel. I'll be getting a price tomorrow to see how much it will cost to have a bunch made. I know these are just wheels with holes in them, but I did say I was doing the easy ones first, LOL.

I combined original torque thrusts with aluminum outer rings that can be adjusted for the offset by the user. These will fit the GMP slicks or the original firestone or goodyear tires. Any interest in these?, I'll have them available soon.

Oh man!  Look at you with the milling machine.  I'm like, now how can I make my craftsman drill into a lathe!     :giggle

I think I've tried this. OK, put the drill on the ground and kneel on it. Then take a screw driver or file and work the aluminum. There ya go(This doesn't actually work).

Poor man's lathe!

I've even tried to turn my drill press into a mill, LOL. That didn't work out so well either.

Poor man's lathe is right!  You know exactly where I'm coming from...

Takes me back to my attempts to drill holes for patch-bays (DOWNWARDS)into ally blocked on 2x2 wood batons, only to go right through and get the end of the drill bit tangled in the pile of the carpet - AND A RESULTING HOLE!!) - and a HEAP of explanations to the missus as to how it was an accident beyond my control...  :giggle:   :giggle:
