    Hi,

    Thanks for the enquiry, we can produce the wheel now as a forged three piece, or if you can drum up enough interest in the project we could certainly manufacture the wheel you described as a cast one piece wheel but there would need to be a large group for it to be worth producing as the set up and tooling costs involved are quite high.

    Hope this helps.

    How many folks involved for the one piece tooling requirements? 3 piece sounds interesting mind you.

    I have to ask though........have you thought of a 15x7 RA design like the BMW jobbies that are getting harder to find.....should sell like hotcakes for mk1s and mk2s
