Does anyone know the approximate total or individual cost to restore/refurbish Borrani wire wheels? Do they experience periodic flat tires and are inner tubes a necessity? I have been looking for a front engined 12 cylinder Ferrari and found one with Borranis, so I need some further info on them. Thanks in advance.
Also consider Dayton Wire wheels. The make spline drive and knockoffs that are pretty close to the real thing. A good alternative if you want to preserve the borrani look without putting the wear and tear on your originals.
Current: 85' GTS QV It's a simple process...... it's just complicated by human beings....
I have several sets of Daytons on my Triumph and Jags. They are beautiful and fairly strong ( I don't track my cars), and in twenty years, I've broken one spoke. But they are prone to leaks. I run tubes in all of them.
Congratulations. That is quite a different direction. Believe Barry has one as well.
Have you posted pictures on AstonMartinLife.com?
Thank you Boxer. You're as gracious as ever. I wasn't aware of an Aston Martin site. I'll check it out. Yes, this was quite a different automotive direction for me as I have always preferred Italian cars. I had an interest in an Aston Martin a few years ago but bought a Ferrari instead. The local Aston dealer had an incredible deal on a new '09 leftover and offered it at $40k off the original sticker with the full 3 year factory warrantee. It was a deal that I couldn't pass up considering it ended up costing the same as the C/4. So thanks for the support as always!
