    Default Anyone know anything about...

    ... "banded wheels?! I know they are big on VW's but have yet to see anything similar on a veccy.

    I think it's a shame as I think my saloon has got some of the same qualities as some of the older German saloons.

    Banded wheels are normally steel wheels cut around the circumference and the a 'band' welded in to widen them,you just have to trust the welder!

    i was thinkin about gettin a set done for winter wheels.
    avin it done will knock the offset of the wheels off quite a bit, which may put extra strain on the bearings and other parts.

    I just think it'll look great. At this rate I'm replacing major suspension components every year anyway, what's a couple of wheel bearings between friends. Thanks Carl, I might look into it if I can find some spare penny's.
