Weld Racing Rodlite Knockoff
« on: August 12, 2019, 10:54:25 AM »
I posted this in the Wanted section as well, but:

I am looking for a single Weld Racing knock off that goes on their Rodlite wheels. My dad lost one on the way to Louisville for nationals and a semi made sure we wouldn't be able to repair it. I have attached a picture of what we are looking for. If anyone has a lead it would be greatly appreciated as these have been discontinued by Weld. Thanks!

those weld spinners look like something that  BILLET SPECIALTIES was /is producing.    The only difference is that they say WELD in the middle disc area.  A photocopy or however it could be done , could be made from one of the other caps.

Photo-etching of brass comes to mind.  Water jet cutting is extremely good as is laser cutting.  All they need to produce duplicates is an original ?

Thanks for the reply Mike.  The Weld logo in the center is easy enough to replace.  They still sell the Weld logo stickers. 

The Billet Specialties are close, but they have a little bit different design and size.  The Billet knock offs have a recessed area in the wing of the knock off and the lug nut covers are also recessed.  The Weld version were smooth on both pieces.  I am in the process of 3D scanning one to see if I can machine a new one, but the lug covers are spun aluminum.  This is a little out of my wheel house.  Cutting the entire knock off out of solid 6061 will also not be cheap.

Thanks again for the reply and I will keep my eye on eBay for now.

if you type in exactly what your looking for into ADVANCED SEARCH and if nothing there it will ask you if you want to be informed by email of any new listings show up with what your seeking.  Its a great service they offer.

I wish they would have a wanted section specifically.
