another useless DIY by me: wheel table in 7 easy steps!

short story even shorter: i got a free rota grid, i had some extra plexiglass laying around, i've been known to cut **** up for no reason, and i had a lot of extra time this weekend.

step 1. acquire rim. eat lots of chik-fil-a waffle fries.


step 2. get a jig-saw. read the caution label. notice it says to always use protection (for your eyes).


step 3. get protection.


step 4. draw a circle the size of the inside of the wheel on the plexiglass


step 5. look at the mess you've made in your parent's garage.


step 6. look at the circle of plexiglass before you.


step 7. peel off protective covering from plexiglass and lay on top of wheel. put something on top of the plexiglass to make your wheel table look useful.



Disclaimer: I will not be held responsible for any molten plastic sticking to any part of your body. If you lose a finger or an eye or something, tough luck. I put this disclaimer here. You can't do anything. Nana Nana Boo Boo.

theyre relatively inexpensive and are generally really close replicas of much more expensive wheels. they even have similar weights to the original wheels.

They copy Volk, Mugen, SSR, and Spoon. I want to say Advan too but i'm not sure. There are probably more but that's all I can think of now.

lol....way too much time. If you have more time make a stand with a bolt pattern on top so you can bolt the wheel to it. Then you have a taller table

If you have a LOT of extra time and a brake roter you could at the too
