Well after searching all over for a steal of a deal on a TRD wheel I figured it's just not going to happen. So, I've decided to make my own wheel. I have never done this before so this project could go either way. I will continue to show progress and would greatly appreciate anyone with knowledge to chime in. So...here is where we are at so far.

Stock ready for tear down...


With a little reshaping...


Pretty easy molding clay that air dries. It dries tough but still has a sponge like feel to it.

^^ agreed... I am assuming that your doing this by hand. If you are, it is going to be extremly difficult to make the radius on each side symetrical, not to mention making the remaining contours even. BUT, I want this to work out! Def. a cool project!

cool idea. I give you props for taking on this project. Does not look easy but if it all works out, will be a great wheel.

I'm going for something different...

Thanks all I understand the hardest part will be symmetry. I'm trying to figure out a way to do one side and basically replicate with a mold but I'm stumped.
