Custom aluminum wheels cut to order

Yes you heard it right. Custom aluminum wheels cut to order. If you ever wanted wheels with custom spokes, or your business name engraved on them here is your chance.
A standardized wheel will be turned on a lath for either the 5t or 5b. The face of the wheel is flat. Machined from solid 6061 t6 billit aluminum. There will be no custom turning of wheels. Only using the standard wheel design pictured.
You will have to either provide a dxf cad file or some form of picture or drawing of what you like on the finished wheel.
If needed I can get pricing on having wheels anodized. This will add to the price.

Price for 4 wheels $500.00

Here are some pic's of the blank wheels I have turned up. The pic of the finished wheels is a production wheel that will be hitting the market soon.

I can do this but it would cost a lot more $$. The reason I can make these custom wheels so cheap is turning the wheels on a cnc lath in larger numbers. To make a larger offset, I would have to setup my lath to make one off pieces witch is not reflected in the $500 price. However if you can find several guys that want to exact same wheel it would drive the price down quite a bit.
