These look great @PaulM what is the difference between machining and diamond cut? Both obviously involve taking material off the surface on a lathe.

Any pics of the fronts?


Machining is flat and doesn’t leave a pattern, diamond cut leaves ridges and creates a circular ‘pattern’.

At last....a company that knows what they are doing with CX500’s. I knew if I held out long enough the right people would appear. Wheels look stunning! 

Absolutely - I must’ve contacted twenty companies, most had stopped doing 3pc wheels, the few that did still offer it sounded like they didn’t understand what these wheels specifically needed. Voodoo hadn’t done these wheels before but clearly knew their stuff on 3pcs and were willing to listen to what I wanted/find ways around problems etc. Great guys, definitely a good find.

It was the diamond cutting i didn't like which most companies employed. Looked too much like a record close up, so its great that these people took the time to find a better way.

They will definitely be getting a visit in due course! 
Thank you for posting the results.
