What's the offset range on that Dakar wheel for a 15x5?

Officially -100 to +100 but in the narrower widths that can be a bit optimistic. Let me find out what it actually is.

We use the 14 inch Braids on our 2 WD Mitsubishi. Good wheels at a good price and great service. We are not sponsored by Braid, it's just nice to be able to recommend something to others.
Looking forward to Olympus.

Check out the front tires on this Fiesta. That's why you need proper wheels on your rally car.




like these BRAID Winrace A.

Standard wheel 15x5 5x170 or 5x105 ......... offset +20 or lower

Special wheel 15x5 5x170 or 5x105 ............ offset +20 to +32. Price for Special wheels would be +$85 more per unit.

Thanks, but that's not going to cut it for the SAAB. The rear fenders are almost impossible and the front fenders are tight with a 15x4.5 et40.

But I like those multipiece wheels and may have another application for them.

The next car isn't going to be a damn orphan with oddball everything.

I thought that might be the case. What's the "next car"?

BRAID FALL STOCK ORDER

It’s that time of year again. Time to order wheels and rake leaves. We can’t help you with the leaves but if you need some wheels this is a great opportunity to avoid those special order shipping charges.

Just to remind you BRAID can make any of their wheels to your specifications which means you can select the offset, bolt pattern, width, diameter etc. and get the EXACT wheel you need for your application. You can see the entire range at www.braidusa.com



The order is going in next week and expected here (Michigan) early December. We are ordering Subaru and Mitsubishi gravel and tarmac wheels for stock as usual but if you drive something else or need wheels in a different specification or color then I recommend ordering now as you will only pay shipping from Michigan which is probably a lot closer then Barcelona.


Let us know your needs and “wheel” get you a quote. Don't miss out.

Can you give me an idea of any extra special order charges, import tax, etc that might come with a special order?
I'm looking at the Winrace TA in a 15x7 and estimating ~$284 per wheel shipped to Oregon. Sound about right? Would it be cheaper to ship to a business address?

Thanks

More like $295 to the west coast on that one though mey be less with quantity. No import duties, they are included.

We do have an open stock order due here in December if you can wait till then. Shipping then is from Michigan at around $25 per wheel.

It depends on need. Most are going with reliable weight. Like Boris from Snatch:





TA for small FWD, Acropolis everything else seems to be the trend.
