Sounds like another company like Cosmis or Rota trying to bring over heavy crappy wheels from china under their own brand name. *not bashing* just throwing my opinion out there.

appreciate the opinion. Thats what the survey is designed to do. See if this is worth pursuing. Personally, Rota, XXR, Cosmis, are all heavy, crap wheels. Im trying to get someone who will cast/forge a quality wheel for not insane prices. Quality is my #1 concern, so trust me they wont be heavy, crap, XXR grade wheels. Quality and Customer service first, then price. Thanks for the opinion tho!

And I want to offer both a cast and forged wheel. Obviously cast is cheaper, but people buying forged probably care less about price and more about quality. I am definitely not creating another XXR brand. I will stop research if I realize its not possible to have an affordable, and quality wheel. The brand will fit both in order to survive. A new wheel brand that has cheap shit wheels is saturated.

Done.
Also interested!

Didn't fill out the contact form as I prefer not to spread out my contact info, but if you bring this to market and spread the word on the forums I will definitely be interested.

I had a look but didnt finish the survey, to open ended, asking questions about "would I buy" without any knowledge of cost, metallurgy, weight is pointless.

There are lots of quality manufacturers of rims out there, they are more expensive for a reason, and are purchased due to their characteristics.

There are alot of cheap rims out there to, because not everyone wants to pay for quality parts.

Good luck with your venture.

Done. Saw some grammar flaws, and there are some questions that I couldn't make an informed decision on because there wasn't enough information, like Cake Eater said.

Default Re: Wheel Survey!

I filled out the survey. Didn't read your other posts before filling it out, otherwise I would have expressed more interest in Flawless Industries' products. I'm looking for quality lightweight wheels in the near term for track driving. In stock size specifically.

The loading that different offsets place on the wheel bearings seems to be overlooked by many big name companies, so if your company does offer quality lightweight wheels in stock sizing/offset (18x8.5" ET55) then that would immediately move the products near the top of my list.

What constitutes modifying? I have mudflaps and a dedicated set of snow tires/wheels, but I wouldn't count aftermarket wheels as a mod. I'm planning to do oil temp/pressure gauges too, but I still wouldn't count that as a mod lol.

Good luck with your venture OP! Keep us posted.
