  • Countach replica wheels solution!

    Fiberglass hubcaps over steel wheels? Were these available at some point? Look like a good solution since countach wheels, replica or not are not easy to find, they cost a fortune if you do find them.

    I recall this being discussed if not here on another forum. The solution seemed to be buying a stock rim http://www.allamericanwheel.com/ and getting the wheels centers machined on a CNC. I believe it was estimated at about $3000 for the set.

      Early Diablo Rims are the best solution. :

        would need 6 orders for Ged to get the replica ones he makes 1600 BPS. This pic is from a gentleman over on the uk replica site...these are the wheels Ged can get made, and to any bolt pattern too

          I think 17" Diablo rims look good, but for those who want to keep the original look, it's a solution. The pictures I posted are from actual hubs. You gotta look close into the wheel opening to see they are covers.

                Will;

                Are the rims a full set for 1600 GBP. That converts out to about $2600 CDN so very much equal to higher end rims I get up here already.

                    why not just upgrade the rims to something more modern for much cheaper than sticking to nostalgic/outdated stuf, especially with a replica.

                          this is the image wheel....it's nice, the best available, but still not exact for the older Countach. Geds are almost 100% accurate in detail except that the holes are larger

                            Will,

                            How many orders for wheels does Ged have? I would be in for a set. I need to get in touch with him about a set of window frames also. Looking at the picture of the Image wheel, something just doesn't look right about it. It almost looks that the center "phone dial" is aluminum, while the outer rim is chrome plated steel. Have you investigated the Image wheel? Is it aluminum or steel?

                              Sorry to have to ask, but who's Ged and where is he based UK/USA? (apologies if i'm being thick!)
