Nice! They look much better on a TA than typical "urban" wheels.

Frank those look fantastic. Have you tried painting and detailing any of these 3D printed wheels? Curious what they look like painted? How is the texture?

This is the closest one ive gotten to finish, its got a grainy texture to it but it sands really smooth with 320 some wheels are purposely made so that the texture cant be sanded off to give the wheels the finished casting look something thats kind of hard to do as it is..

Umm , Ummm . I dissagree . These aren't Honeycombs . Honeycombs consist of IIRC Octaganal (8 sided) shapes . On the Pontiacs , these shapes filling the hub to rim portion of the wheels . Aa nice as these are , I remember these as "Uncle Snirdly's" or "Acme" Aftermarket Rims . My 2 cents . I bought two sets of these for my '71 & '72 Pontiac GTO's i have as WIp's . Thanx ..
