    Yes, once an order is requested we will go ahead and cut a set just for the GT500 to replace the Carbon Fiber Wheels.

    I am probably in the minority but i swear classic 5 spoke wheels are hard to come by outside of custom 3pc wheels and even then hard to find simple clean ones. So you might think about those, but you probably know the market better than me. I like 5 spoke clean wheels preferably with a lip of some sort.

    Very cool, and I __love__ seeing the whole process from design to product. I visited CCW a few times (owned a couple of sets of their wheels), and had a blast seeing the various processes involved in wheel manufacturing.

    Haven't been on in a while but the return of the GT500 has made me snoop back in. I like the look of these better than the previous version. Is that the most aggressive you can get on the concave? Hard to find anything crazy concave in the right sizes...

    I think I would like these in 19x11.5 F and 19x12 R

    The ability to get concave is dictated by the car. The distance between the hub and the fender is the limit. Unfortunately Ford has not had a very large distance to work with in some time. These actually look very concave compared to most and look more concave IMO than you actually have re-estate to work with. That's down to the shape of the spoke giving the illusion that they're more concave then they are.

    These wheels are fabulous, I love the entire operation (I work at a production machine shop.)

    You must be starting with forged blanks that roughly resemble the wheels. Large void in the back. I suppose it's possible they may even be forged with close to a finished shape on the back side and the barrel, and then you are just removing material to do the spokes. This is what I think of when I try to imagine how you're doing this in North America, profitably.
