I am trying to find someone to machine a 16" X 2.5" aluminum rim blank for me. I am wanting 2 right now. I had someone rough quote $1000 for a complete pair but thats way out of budget. I will do the final machining of the center design so all I need is the blank with a hole in the center. I don't have the design completed but If someone thinks they can do 2 of them for less than $400 email me. If this project works out it will be an on going job.

3.00" is the smallest I can get in a 16" wheel. I can contact a friend of mine in Houston and see if he can cut (2) 3.5" waffers for you, you would have to turn the profile in a lathe if you can turn an 18" piece?. 16" wire wheels might be a problem as well, some of the older off-road motorcycles used a 16" spoke wheel but I believe they were 2.15" wide. good luck ! let me know
