I just wanted to post a pix of the Halibrand wheels that Todd Bishop at BRP is making for my Phoenix Arrow Sprint car. These are awesome. Al

Wow very nice Al! Props to BRP. The future's looking bright for customization, LRU also had some nice rims but sadly production stopped. There's a lot of talented builders out there but sadly not the demand for the high prices to pay, so far the BRP wheels and RC4W affordable rears show that quality and production does not have to be sacrificed to make a killing right off the bat. I'm pretty sure those BRP rims don't require a second mortgage.

Real purdy Al! Those cast Conley centers polish up beautifully with some rubbin' :)

Those look awesome. How did you find out BRP could get rims like that?

can't wait to see them on your car. I think i will order a set for my conley cobra. Conley originally used cast centers with spun aluminum rims. They are a little wonky.

Thanks. Todd at BRP did the tires and custom billet combo for about $550.
