    back in the early 90's i owned a wire wheel factory hidden in San Fernando California and only worked direct with most of the major wire wheel makers at that time. Between my Machinest and myself we came up with the tooling and the dyse to make the first hundred spoke 13x7 true knock off spindle wheel and also the first 20 inch hundred spoke true knock off wheel. toward the end of the 90's the market got flooded with China wheels and I bailed out before i went bankrupt like most major wire wheel companies did. I turned to my career of Civil Engineering and moved to Las Vegas were i helped design major roadways and housing developments in the Las Vegas area. As you all know the Economy hit all of us pretty hard so again I landed a job with a Civil Engineering Firm in Phoenix Arizona were i reside today. I love the sport of Lowriding and I love rolling on 13' also the passing of my close friend who always told me to never give up on the wire wheel.

    thats my resume' hope it works for you.

    Can you "re-size" a set of 13x7, 100 spoke chinas to fit like Zeniths. I have a '95 Fleetwood & the chinas rub inside the rear skirts, Zeniths are just a bit smaller & don't rub. If you do that, what is the price per wheel? Thanks

    we would have to change out the outer with one that is dimpled and pierced with a more positive offset so the rim can clear your rear fender. you are looking at 170.00 since it would be made and chrome here in the States.
