That is correct. We are currently in the process of having a few sets made for us to road test and load test. I am hoping by the end of the yeat we will at least have the 19s and 22s done and then the 24s will come next. I am going to stay with the classic hand hole designs that already exist i.e 2 hand hole, 5 hand hole, etc.

Prices are still being negotiated and I can assure you when they are ready I will post on my Forum here first.

I am curious why people would want steel wheels?? In my line of work, try to avoid them and run aluminum cause they are lighter... Just curious why people would want to run them.

What is the weight of a steel one compared to aluminum? I wouldn't want that extra weight of steel ones with the already insufficient brakes on the shitboxes. To me not a good Idea but when has safety ever came before style.

The price for these is still in the air. We are negotiating that with our manufacturer at the moment and trying to make it as low as possible.

OKC is right in the world of Big Rig truckin' everyone wants aluminum because they are lighter and save gas. But on our applications the weight isnt that big of an issue. The steel wheels are only around 20lbs +/- heavier than the aluminum ones.

I am mainly building these for the inner wheels to save customers some money rather than buying all 6 aluminum wheels or running your stock 16s or 17s on the inside.

Plus the steel wheels will also be available in CHROME...

Dragyota, We cannot mill a steel 22.5 to a 22 there isnt enough material on the wheel to make that happen.

If you want the Aluminum wheels done I will PM you a price and if you want to come spend a day at the shop or tour the Jack Daniel's Distillery I can have you in and out the same day.
