    Also purchased wheels from them years ago (2010 or so) but yes -- things have changed.

    There’s multiple re-builders out there. Sensei6 seems to be one of the best. There’s also 3pieceUS who has some questionable reviews. I used a company in Columbus years ago to get lips/barells for my ABC Exclusives. They got the job done, but not without damaging some chrome. Good help is hard to find…

    Quite a few quality rebuilders out there...but they know they're good and fan(boys) pay for their time. I fanboy over some of the crazy wheel conversions out there....either rebarrels or multi pcs conversions, or stock conversions, etc.

    I've only ever shipped one set, and I would never do this. I've also only purchased online 1 other set, and they arrived in boxes. No on I have ever known have received wheels like this but then again my friends have more money than I do and buy new mostly so if this is common, that's a shame.

    In other news:

    Started restoring the Bergs. They are pretty rough on the inside with rust/brake dust.

    I was going to pay to have them redone, but after looking over all of the wheels, the only actual damage to the set is this little ding on one of the wheels. So assuming they are straight and not bent I think ill do it myself.
    Im not sure how I can test to make sure there are no bends. I was just going to lay them on my table saw as that's the flattest surface I have.

    [​IMG]

    Either way, Ill clean them up so if there are other repairs needed I wont have to pay for finishing at least.

    1st Round of 80 grit sand paper and WD40

    [​IMG]

    One more round of that and I should get all of it, then its just a matter of working my way to like 1500 grit and then switching to the polishing wheels, compound and Dewalt Polisher.

    Stumbled on an interesting set a little while ago. I'd be very interested in them myself but have decided I need to step up to 17's to take advantage of more tire options. These look like a PERFECT spec for someone wanting to run skinnies. Although I can't confirm caliper clearance.

    Anyone familiar with the Weds Keeler wheels?

    I found a set of 16x7 +5 which are tempting since now the new Falken AT4W will be offered in 255/85R16. Just wondering if anyone has seen these on a Tacoma or knows anything about them which might influence my decision one way or another.

    Japanese Classics puts them on lots of trucks and they look good. Very OEM+ . There were lots more but you get the idea

    Thanks for those pics. I ended up not pulling the trigger on the set I found because I just wasn't sure about the offset and they were only a set of 4 without caps - had it been a set of 5 with caps they would have been harder to turn down.

    These are nice, and a decent offset too.
