Solid wheels for the RR Armoured Car

Post by Armortek » Fri Nov 09, 2018 10:48 am

We have been asked if we can make some solid wheels for the armoured car.
Let us know if this is something you are interested in and we can price it up. This is not something that we will carry on the shelves - only make enough to meet the current demand.

Solid wheels will look similar to the below.

After spending days if not weeks on the wire wheels, it would be soul destroying not to use them. Great idea but no thanks.

In between M3 production we have made a start on the Rolls Royce solid wheels.

The first part has been made - 2 more parts to go (hub and cap), but should not take much longer.
We are only making 5 sets (8 wheels ... 2 front, 2 spare and 4 for the rear).

5 sets of solid wheels are made and will be shipped out in the next few days.
We have had some more requests for the solid wheels, so will plan in another production run over the next few months. If you are interested then let us know.
