Postby bobtherider123 » Tue Jan 14, 2014 1:10 am

ok so i am working on building a rally car replica. the car im trying to duplicate looks like this.

Image

so my question is where can i find the louvers for the wheels or is there a how to on making them? i tried searching and surprisingly no one has asked. here is a pic of my car when i picked it up a few months ago.

I could had sworn someone was making replica turbo wheels recently. Have you checked OZ?

Ronal makes a model called the R50, very popular here with the euro guys

Image

But there's also the old school BMW wheels which were 4pieces wheels, extremely rare and expensive for a complete set.
I can't remember the exact name of these wheels , ill try to ask a friend who knows bmw more than I do...

Oz Rally wheels will look good.

BBS did a wheel for Audi but I doubt whether you will find any!!!

The wheel vents are in fact pretty rudimentary, pop rivets are involved!!

This is obviously the back side that goes against your wheel.

Compomotive makes replicas from all classic rallying OZ discontinued models. The HT series are the same that the TTE 165 had. They make wheels at your request. Those are racing wheels, not the average chinese audi replica.

Image

For the ventolinis its really hard to find a original set, but there are many replicas built in carbon fiber or other composites

Any of you guys run 17x8 wheels on your st165? That's the smallest compmotive offers the TH1455's in.
