Affordable Fill & Drill

Hello everyone,
I'm now offering fill & drill services, on most flat back wheels.
It is a process done at a local shop and, we can do a turn around time of a week or less, depending on urgency.

I have had plenty of wheels done with great results, so don't be afraid, as it is better to go this route than to just redrill without covering the existing lug pattern, to maintain its strength.

Price is set at $240 per set (4 wheels)

Samples.
#e39 style 5s


#e38 style 5s


#e23 Alpina



Please PM me or post on here and, I'll get back to you.

Thank you for looking.

Seems like a great deal. At some point in the future I want to pick up some 16" Style 5s and get them filled/drilled, I'll keep this in mind.

I know man, I'm trying to figure out the best shipping method, so I can offer the service country wide.

Thanks for the interest.

Unfortunately not, there's too much surface material and the bolt pattern would not agree with the wheel design.

On the same note do you think M-System wheels are candidates or should I just stick to style 5?

M Systems tend to have a larger center bore, not leaving enough meat to be able to do the redrill correctly. I can try them if you'd like but, I can't take responsibility for them.

Well, I'll be damned. If I ship them out to you with return labels, would you guys be able to do a set of E38 style 5's? I am not a fan of the adapters any more so this would work out it seems.

Sure would buddy, PM me for address and details.

I too had my experience with adapters and, it's not the business, so I now offer this option for anyone interested.

It's a 5 work day, turn around time, I can rush it, if I were to get the wheels before Friday.
I can try to pick them up Monday but, I can't make promises.
