Not the "next car" yet, but a non-competition car...

Looking at the 4x4 Series 1 (with the non-reinforced rim).
http://www.braid.es/wheels/products/no-competition-product_p9/4x4-wheels_p39/4x4-1-series_p100.html

Looking for 16" in 8" et 10-ish and 10" et 0-ish, but the Spanish page lists 9" as the widest available.

Can you check on the availabity of the sizes I need, and the 16x9 et0 in a 5x5 bolt pattern with the same pale gold that the rally wheels come in on the centers?

Let me see what I can dig up for you. Something should be possible.

Factory is closed for Easter. It's a big deal in Europe is Easter.I'll have to get back to you next week. Sorry about that.

Sorry this took a while. Was away in Europe for a week and only just got back.

We can make these wheels 10" wide in some cases, depending on the offset. It is possible to make them with ET0.

Price for 16x10 Serie 1 4x4 is $899 each

Manufacture time around 15 days.

Shipping cost depends how soon you need them and final destination.

One of my all time favorite cars (to look at, never driven one). Who would have thought we'd have wheels for it? Well, we do, nice forged replicas. Give me a call if you need some. I'm sure we can produce them for other vehicles. Can you imagine them on a 911?





OK, back to more realistic options:

The last wheels you'll ever need - part 4
May 17, 2013 10:28AM
This year's High Dessert Trail Rally was a car breaker; the perfect proving ground for our gravel rally wheels. Mike McCanna proved his to be very strong, stronger than the car.

"60+ mph off into a ditch-- destroyed the suspension, bent/tore the chassis and ruined our day/season. Wheel is barely scratched! Braids kick ass! We are fine and the car will live to race another day. But it was a direct hit to the drivers front wheel and it looks no worse for wear. Colour me impressed. "

Glad everyone is OK.

Here is my testimonial. Al and I spun 180doing ~60 mph, dug into soft loam, hit an embedded rock, did a 1 1/2 backflip ripping the passenger rear wheel from the studs. All four wheels are still nice and round and holding air. Be wary of those damned set screws holding the rotors on though. Bah!

I've seen several damaged Braid's on Crazy Leo's car, from scuffed and slightly dented to completely trashed. But then, I think Crazy Leo could break a drilling-hammer with a goosedown pillow. That says volumes for these wheels. The man is not "normal" even as Rallyists define it. I heard he even crashed in his garage once.

I empathise with his co-drive, and the whole "constant fear of Imminent, Lurking Death" thing.....

Every time I've seen Leo's car it's had Speedlines on it.





Maybe he should get some BRAIDs. Anyone have his contact info?

No, it wasn't. It was quite smooth in fact. Mike just got suckered by a corner that's deceptive.

And though Mike hit pretty hard, it's quite likely that his car would've suffered less damage if his wheels had given a little.


I appreciate that you've got a great product and are just trying to sell it, but keep it real, eh?

We recently supplied through one of our dealers a pair of our BZ wheels with Iris Blue centers to match his existing wheels. As you can see they turned out quite nicely and he is very happy with them.

"Thanks again for your help on with the 16 x 8 Braid wheels.
I am glad that I ordered the centers painted Iris blau to match my 7" Fuchs now moved to the front. Except for the fact that the Braid wheels are beautifully new and the Fuchs need to be refinished, no one can tell the original Fuchs from the Braid wheels. Excellent job.
As promised, the wheels were tested this weekend at Buttonwill with the Central Coast PGA's Wind in the Willows on Friday and the Golden Gate Region PGA's Saturday event. Attached are some photos that you are welcome to use to show offer these fine wheels."

This is the big trade-off with rally for sure.

At Mount Washington Hillclimb in 2011 we hit a stone wall and had zero suspension damage because we were running super-light 12.5lb wheels which broke into bits. Would never run those wheels for stage rally as they would surely come apart on stage even without any 'offs'.

Our compromise is that we bought a stack of 12 cheapo Sport edition wheels form Tirerack when they were on clearance for $30 each and just toss them when they are damaged. They are strong enough to stay together with punctures and off-road excursions but light enough to bend when you smack something and cheap enough to not really care...
