The Kertcher wheels only list in black though .. perhaps this is a discontinued line of wheels Dont know

The design ones do seem slimer but it seems that only the fronts are shown .... need to see a picture of the rears really .... spacers perhaps ?

Im guessing the Kertcher ones could be repainted but that dull silver would be a problem to achieve .

I'm sure the aircooled boys will know the correct paint code for the petals.

That silver look on the old air cooled stuff is actually anodising.
Very expensive to do properly.

I don’t know what are on the ones above but I’d guess it’s just silver powdercoat, then masked for the black to be done in the recesses. Dont know

Im 99% sure they are the ones I had but they have been masked and had the petals sprayed. I was close to doing this.

Fitment was perfect IMO, no spacers required. They are well make, weight wise no more than standard wheels. Tempted to get another set seeing as Im not going aero kit look now.
The outer rim is satin lacquer on them and not painted silver. Note the wheels caps need genuine fuchs caps sizes as well, 70mm IIRC.

See this page where I made some satin silver petals from vinyl just to have a try and see what it would look like.

Cheaper to buy Fuchs I think - once you've factored in the painting aspect the Fuchs probably work out cheaper/the same.

Fuchs are £2.5K or so.

You can pick Kersher's up for £1,500. No way it costs more than a couple of hundred to get the petals painted.

Only the genuine article will do for you Neil, we all know that. Grin

Got to be Fuchs then if the difference is only a grand. I thought they’d be 3 or 4 times the price of the replica brands.

I've got a quote from JZM for the Fuchs for under 2k.

Also, I believe the correct finish is matt alloy for the petals, so you'd need to strip/blast/mask/paint/clearcoat the Kercher FX to get the correct RSR finish - which I reckon would be spendy.

Under £2k for genuine Fuchs, that's good.

What spec?

That was for 17" wheels, so might be more for 18's. To be fair I really need to wait and test both 9" and 10" rears with the new engine, then make a decision on what new wheels to get.

Just to add another alternative (with a deeper dish look). My 18" Group 4 Fuchs reps were £1,250 delivered.

I've been looking at these too. They seem to have a deeper dish on the fronts than some other rep's, which I prefer.
They do seem to have gone up in price, but still comparable to other replicas. With shipping & handling they're now £1596

Just had a chat with Group 4- they only do a solid paint finish, so by the time you have had the wheels stripped and refinished you are back to actual Fuchs prices.

Not the greatest pic, but hopefully gives you the idea. Not sure about weights, but they are not light. Being a bit of a tart, I bought them purely for aesthetics Very Happy

Adding it all up it would be 2k for those Group 4's, in the RSR finish.
