Here's the slots mounted, they have been blasted and coated ceracoat, I'll get that information soon...


My brother sent me this set, these are really nice and heavy for aluminium.
Soon I will post a video of a sort of review of these wheels. All 3 sets can be purchased on ebay or direct to him. Anyway....
