    First Stage Of Refurb.

    Now the winter is coming to a end (hopefully) i have started to put the gears into motion and get my wheels ready for spring/summer i should have had them in for some custom painted centers ages ago. To save myself some money on the refurb process i said i would remove the plastic studs/rim bolts due to the work involved of masking or replacing.. I have sourced some stainless steel rim studs for these replica rims at a very good price at 4.50 for a a pack of 10.

    Here's some pics.

    The studs came out with ease,some just crushed when pressure was applied.








    Tiny little thing's.





    Next weekend i will drop the wheels off for the next stage i have asked for the powder coated lips not to be refurbed as they are still corrosion free and are in very good condition even after two years+ I will be fitting the new stainless steel studs once the wheel have been custom painted.

    I do like those wheels. What are you doing with the centres or is it classified?

    Lads a little help in identifying what size (roughly) these studs are.

    Are they M6 or M7

    I removed my studs because i'm having the centers painted and masking of the studs or trying to key around them would have been a nightmare so removing them/replacing them ensures the centers paint will be perfect along with new stainless steel studs instead of plastic, is the way I wanted to go.

    So a little update on this my overdue BBS LM rep's refurb. I'm still waiting for my my wheels to be finished (over 6 weeks now) have been told that they should be ready for tomorrow (not holding my breath) but i'm fully booked this weekend due to detailing a car. I have however managed to drop the stainless steel studs off for powder coating (not the same guy who's doing my wheel's).

    100% Stainless Steel Fake Split Rim Studs


    Myself and docurley aka David both bought these stud's. At first i was not to happy with them as they are alot different looking from the BBS style of wheel stud/bolt but after test fitting them i thought i may as well stick with them as the other options were buy bbs stud's and cut them down which David as now done or opt for the plastic chrome option again. I thought long and hard on whether or not to keep them stainless steel or have them powder coated, I thought i would have the studs powder coated Satin Black as my grill's and window trim's are also black and the stud's should go well with the new coloured centers.

    Satin Black .

    Stage 2 Refurb

    After waiting 3 months for my wheels to have there new look, i had a phone call yesterday saying my wheels are ready for collection. I still have a fair bit of work to do on them, like fitting/bonding the studs into place (any ideas ) , center cap design (undecided) and a good clean before sealing them with Gtechniq C5 and then i can add some rubber.. I'm a happy chappy now.

    Some folk may not like what i have done to these wheels, and will argue that i have wasted time and money on replica wheels, but i have had these wheels since 2009 and yes they are on most VAG cars now day's but i think they look great on our A4's and i wanted to try something new..

    New Coloured Center's



    Had a little test fit of the Satin Black Studs.

    cheers lad's. I have been thinking about what to use to bond in the stainless steel studs, the studs thread diameter is a lot less the the hole holes on the wheel's (alot of movement) so i'm thinking of using Tiger seal, anyone have any other ideas on what to use to bond these stainless steel studs to alloy.

    Wheels and studs look good, Tiger seal will work great, had Kit cars that I used tiger seal with and never had an issue with it.

    I have just finished bonding in the studs, so I will give them a few days to set. I may change the center stickers from Audi rings to BBS type stickers
