Default Deep dished wheels

I love the look of deep dished wheels but it's expensive to achieve with new wire wheels.
Does anyone know of someone who'll band wires to provide the deep dish look that I crave?
This sort of thing


Thanks.

Don't even think about it. When it comes to wheels and tyres, do it the right way or not at all.
Yes I've used adapter spacers, banded wheels and dubious tyres in the past and lived. That doesn't mean that you will.
It's not worth it.

Talk with Chris at Tribute as he had some wide wires and details of the bloke who supplies them.

Hi IanA,
your words seem a little strange appearing on a forum such as this one?
Surely there is no right or wrong way to do anything?

We all do whatever we like to create the look we want don't we?

Sounds as though you have had a bad experience with wheels in the past, tell us about it, I'm curious now!

Scottie

Seanick knows of someone who does a good job when banding.

It's one of the best build threads.

Exactly.
People often bang on about banding, spacers, and cutting springs but there's nothing wrong with any of these providing a good job is done by someone who knows what their doing.
