For $100 Per wheel he will cut out the old center, supply and weld in the new center with a new rubber O-ring.

You can supply your own 12 bolts or he will sell them to you @ 75 ea.

For an extra $40 he will have them sandblasted and Powdercoated.

or you can buy them complete.
rim/tire/recenter/powdercoat and mount 36 or 37" goodyears for 250 each.

1000$ you can have 4) 12 bolt recentered wheels, runflats and 4 tires ready to ship with air in them and ready to bolt up.

I dig your post, but it would be like, super better if it said which centers were pressed/dished... instead of not saying anything about that particular design facet, mmmkay?

:flipoff2:



thanks, btw. I am looking for centers but kind of lazy this week. Your thread comes at the best time possible, FOR ME. :D

Thats great, USA6X6 centers are working for you, but by purchasing products from him it keeps him in business and helps him to fuck others out of their money, no matter what dont spend your money there, spend the extra few bucks and buy from a reputable vendor, support the board that supports you!

creative engineering is where you should go. it's local and you don't have to pay shipping plus its super cheap. i got mine from him. his are plasma cut so don't expect laser accuracy but he does counter sink the bolt holes.

ill put him up there cause he has rim protection. i dont see re-centers though. could you confirm that he got recenters from him? i like his designs

Yeah i no that he got them from there I picked them up with my beadlocks. I think you need to call Kurt one of the guys that runs DIY4x. I think this was a new design that he was working on.

But i will email Kurt with these link and see what i can pull up for you guys.

It's a flat center. I had originally expressed concern about bending a flat plate center so he came up with the design pictured.

Hey guys,

As mikeydo5 has stated they are 3/8" thick centers with 1/4" gussets from the center all the way up to the first roll in the rim shell surface and all the way out to the lug circle.

I've done a limited few sets so far. Just kinda getting into them slowly. More so for guys that are trail only. Not to say they wouldn't be good for on road use though. Just would like to have a few more done before we go ripping down the interstates.

At any rate, we've been doing them for $80 wheel welded. An important note, these are fixture welded. I won't sell the centers to people to put in on their own. Sorry. Just not the way these are set up to work.

Several Backspacings and lug patterns available.
