Don't mind the side walls on the tires. I need to get them glued and blend sanded.

Those look great. Are the wheels 1.9's are did you cut down some 2.2's. If you made them, How did you make them?

Cool! What are those, a 1.3?

Love the sidewalls, they look like at least a 44" tire on there....lol noice!

The expression 'lathe' gets me real excited-like...

The wheels are actually 1.6'' dia. They are the the outer section of the tlt wheels.
Little fun fact though, Mini wheels are the same diameter.
Sorry I don't have too many in process pics but hopefully you get the idea from my blurry pics.

Very cool...I've never owned TLT wheels, never realized the ineer and outer diameter were different.
Plans for color or finish of wheel?

The wheels will get sanded smooth and painted flat black. I would like to build some rock rings too I hope. As for the FJ, I posted some pics in the build thread. I just threw them on the FJ for pics.
