What was the cost on the Rotiform wheels?
I talked to Jason in California from Rotiform. REALLY knowledgable guy! Really took his time with me. Remembered the original wheels made for Lolo. I told him I wanted exactly the same wheels- correct offsets, powder coated silver, 17x8's front, except 18x10's in back. I thought he would say use a stepped wheel in back so they could use the same center. He said no, you don't want to do that. That would actually make the rear wheel look smaller. He quoted $685 for fronts, $695 for rears=$2760, not including shipping from Chicago. They are made in Cali but would only charge me from Chicago. I didn't ask the shipping charge. I just about choked! That's about half the price I have been quoted for other 'custom wheels'. Still not cheap but- forged, powder coated, correct offset and the same look for the car as the originals is huge to me. A local dealer had emailed him after I had talked to the dealer, the dealer was a little confused because Jason quoted me a lower price than he gave the dealer but he said they would go by what Rotiform quoted me.
I was pretty excited about all this, but my health insurance is goofed up and they admit it's their fault but still no checks. Have been thinking I may have to get a lawyer! That's why I haven't pulled the trigger on the wheels yet, but I will.
I've been studying tires and sizes every day!
Putting all new belts on the car and checking valve clearances instead of looking out the window at the 2 day ice storm we've been having.
Doing that work with the engine in the car instead of on the bench is a little more challenging!
