I'm making this thread to take Supersubs thread (http://forums.celicasupra.com/showthread.php?t=54567) to the next level. I know when he started it, he wasn't really thinking it would go anywhere besides a fancy pipe dream. But, luckily for us, it is being made into much more. Thanks to his designs, and work he has put into those designs; having these remade is going to be a reality.

The wheels are going to be available in the following configurations:
Stepped lip only
17x8, 17x9.5, or 17x11
They do not offer a 17x8.5. They just don't do it for some reason, that's all I can tell you.

Offset: From -12mm to +25mm and anywhere in between. When I set up the group buy, you can specify your exact offset you want for front and rear. That also obviously makes it available for L-types.

They will come in a polished finish. If anodizing or powdercoating is wanted to be done, it would be $100 more a wheel, depending on how many they run of the anodized or powdercoated wheels.

Price: At this point, the estimate I have is right around $2600 a set.

Lead time: Once the group buy is completed, right around six weeks. This will have to happen after the first set is made, then test fitted on a car with a J/K bbk. As far as we know, according to the renderings made by Mike(supersubs) they will fit. But we obviously need to be sure. They're located in Kansas City, Mo, so the easiest way to test fit these would be to have someone who lives somewhat close, with a bbk, go to their shop and test fit. I doubt we'll find someone to do that so I'll probably end up having them shipped for test fitment.

Edit: They are located at:
Genuine Boyds
7211 NW 83rd Street
Suite 250
Kansas City, MO 64152


That's all I have to say at this point, check this thread for updates. If you have questions please post them here.

Here is the rendering that we sent Coddington:


Here's the photoshop Mike did to Dave's car. If he does anymore I hope he will post them here. I am terrible with photoshop.

Also:
Biggest reason for stepped lip, rather then reverse lip like Malloy has on his Ssr's, is the size availability Coddington offers.
For 17" reverse lip they only offer:
17x7, 8 and 10

I'm sure that is a typo there Austin :)

Ha! I was about to say the same thing. We don't want to scare people away already Austin! ;)

A huge thanks for Austin pushing this through to multiple companies looking for someone to take the initiative and time to give us some figures! I never had the time or libido to do this on my own, so this is all at Austin's credit!

Can't wait for updates!

His other post in the pic thread was 2850 per set IIRC. Which, is more than a realistic price, for custom wheels. Last set I had done, 10 years ago, was 800ish per wheel.

Those who routinely drive in the rain will appreciate the stepped lip.
Who drives in the rain? :) << Garage Queen sits inside collecting dust and dryrot>>>


I for sho would have to rock the polished wheels for a while before I dare dissassemble them and have them coated any color. It could be a devistatingly expensive mistake!

I don't think I can get past the stepped lip personally...it makes it look like white wall tires on the PS of Malloy's car
Don't hold testimate to my crappy PS skillz Mark!

A few things to consider when looking at the chop is:
1. These are rendered wheels, and the reflection off the polished lip is very exagerated (almost while). I need to adjust the gamma down on the render, and try to adjust the light perspective to something closer to what is actually in the pic I photoshop.
2. The wheel design shown is merely a rough draft. I only estimated off some general dimensions to guess the step's width, angle, position ect. This is why I am so interested to see how the Coddington boys will modify the part! It may look nothing like what I started with, or very similar! I'm sure that they have their own step style that they use from their distributers, which will not be exactly like what I created. I could go into their website and look at their wheels, and come up with a model that seems to reflect the style of lip/barrel they have on their cars, but I don't have the time right now.
