i juts kills me. note to self never buy a set of 3pc wheels without center caps. its actually cancer.

 

and i think koenigs are ugly with out the caps. the caps make the wheel imo.

you could prob have some custom caps made for less than $150 per? those are my fav wheel design, but i think they look best on a ucf20.

Ha, ha, ha..........
A two piece cap, custom made for less than $150, ha, ha, ha....

Only if you have a brother in law that is a machinist, or you give Rue a lot of blow-jobs.

I suggested a replacement, guess you didn't catch that.

Hard to make a accurate replacement without an original and off a google images. Easier to ship a center cap to someone rather than ship a huge wheels to someone.

So i bought one so i can have it replicated. 3 brand new caps incoming. I may even have a few sets made to sell to others. These caps are in demand.

I HAVE ACQUIRED ONE ELUSIVE AND RARE KOENIG CENTER CAP. Thank you Tyler Knapp for helping me buy it from yahoo.jp. Now who wants to machine me new ones? Plsss

Better known as 6.0625".

You are looking at a very expensive project.
I will have to file this under the 'Wet Dream' section.
Doubt any shop that has large enough equipment will even consider an order of less than 50 pieces will even talk to you.
And you would have to set a wheel, and a cap in their shop, pay them to reverse engineer it.
The cost of one (1) 10' bar of 6061, in 6.25" round bar is nearly $1400, and that only makes 15 sets.
That is $93 per set, just for the material.....

No engineering time, no machine time.

Better stick to buying used ones.

G from S9 had some custom caps made for a similar wheel. I think in collaboration with Rarespec Wheels maybe? You could try reaching out to him to see what he ended up doing?

rarespec outsources literally everything he does. he does nothing but connect dots. find his dot and push the button.

Yea, he's a decent dude though and has always been pretty transparent about that, with me anyway. Worth talking to him, in my opinion.

Wheel fitment looks on point; what front camber are you at? 

Did you already need that many repairs on your front fenders?

I need an alignment but I'm pretty sure my front camber is somewhere in the neighborhood of ~7.5 and rear is .5

and yeah,

last track day I clipped a stack of tires with my corner light, which crunched up my fender like an accordion into 3 pieces.

Aluminum wouldn't rust, you but some fusor or 3m bonding agent, you don't have to do anything but cut the shape and stick it on
