Which of the Aoshima wheels sets are two piece. Every place that I have looked does not list whether the wheels are two piece or not. It is much easier to paint the spokes that way. TIA :D

That's a tough one Ken.

I don't have a list, but here is what I know are two piece

VIP Stich Dish

Racing Hart type CR

Bersaglio Spoke II

Junction Produce SCARA Japan 19

VIP Amistad Rotino

VIP Kranze Borphes

VIP Kranze LXZ

VIP Fabulous Profund

Wald Duchatelet

I noticed on HLJ that their are some new Aoshima wheels coming out in September. I've pre-ordered mine already and know they will sell out. I have a feeling of the four sets coming out at least two of them appear to be two piece.

Maybe everyone who has any Aoshima rims can add to the list and we can get a nice two piece list started.

You might get some Micro Mark Liquid Mask. It works real good for masking wheels. I masked these with M-M Liquid Mask.

I found pics of 3 of the 4 sets (all but the 16" Daytona rims). They're VIP wheels, only one (Fabulous Velis) looks suitable for a separate trim ring, not sure if it will or not.

Bob, I must have looked online for hours for pics of those wheels. I preordered two sets of the Velis as it looks like a really cool wheel and one each of the others with exception to the 16" Daytona wheel.

Really would like to see it before I order it.

Thanks for the link!

I preordered two sets myself. Isn't there a thread on the "Rants" page about wheel fetishes? :wink:
