    Titanium is very difficult to get. I was trying to get some titanium rods to make some threaded rod to mount a motor and was not able to find any. Where were you able to buy it.
    How big is the wheel you are holding.

    I mistakenly said it was going to be Titanium sorry but I meant Magnesium which is lighter then aluminum and a bit stronger,

    designing the wheels, or should I say revising the drawings, to get a 6 inch outside dia of the whole wheel, the rim was enlarged and to keep the tire at the proper outside dia, I reduced the interior dia to give a more scale tire profile.
    The different colors, is simply to help with the drawings, the red part is the wheel bearing retainer 1.jpg 2.jpg 89341054_10158439604712139_3743527202096939008_o.jpg
