11" Alcoa Wheels Update!!!!


Recommended Posts

Hi all!!!!

 

Sorry I was a day late with the news, but here you go :)

 

 

The last test we did passed. The wheels will be made!!!!!!!

 

 

Now, here is some info that is kind of important to know..........................

 

1. The wheels have to be made now---time frame? It could take a month or two, but they will be made :happy feet:

 

2. The wheels will have the Super Snake markings on them. That means they are exclusive to the SS. If your car is in the shop when we have the wheels, you will then have the option of either the 10's or the 11's. If you choose the 11's, there will be a price difference between the 2 wheels and a price difference in the tires. As soon as I get the pricing, I will let you all know.

 

3. If you do choose to go with the 11's, you do not get the set of 10's with it. It will be one or the other. Also, if you decide to purchase the 11's, you will have to send us the 10's back. Again, these are going to be exclusive to the SS. We can not have extra SS wheels floating around :)

 

4. If you do choose the 11's, the rear brake duct will NOT fit and they will not be added onto the vehicle. Will the brake ducts still go with the car? I am not sure. I still have to find that one out.

 

5. Will there be "stock" 11" Alcoa's? That is a good question and we are working on it. We had to choose one or the other first and we choose to do the SS wheels at this time.

 

As soon as I know when they will hit, I will let everybody know again. Folks, they are coming, but it will take just a little more time to get them made and sent to us.

 

I hope this is good news to all!!!!!!! :happy feet:

 

Thanks!!!!

That is great news! I just got the call from Cynthia to bring my 08 GT500 in to Vegas for the SS.

 

With the holidays approaching and scheduling transportation, I told her that I will be dropping off my car first week of January.

 

I have two questions.

 

1. Will the new 11" rims be available by January 2009?

 

and not to sound greedy.

 

2. What's the status of the upgraded Rear Brakes in colors?

Can the 10" rear rims move to the front, use the 11" on the rear and return the 9's? Also can the exchange be made at the Mod shop where we had our cars built?

Bud, won't it be easier to just offer the 11" Alcoa thru SPP with out the SS logo? This keep the SS package as is and the SS owners won't have to bare the cost to have the tires removed from the current 10" Alcoa and shipped back to SAI. SAI won't have to worry about the 10" SS Alcoa wheel because the SS owners will want to keep them because they are part of the original package. Plus SAI won't have to hold hundred's of pairs of 10" SS wheels. I think SAI/SPP would sell more 11" wheels this way. Just a thought.
