    It's out of round, so it's useless on a car, but I'm going to make a coffee table out of it. :)

    coffe table would own, build the stand out of a 5 bolt pattern and get some lugnuts to hold it together. weld steel stock to establish heigh, finish with a tripod as a base. Glass on top for a flat surface.

    Is it the beer or is that thing fiercly out of round?? (right die looks jacked!!)

    I'm in the process of procuring a gold 17" Rota SDR with a cracked spoke. If I can get this wheel, I'll use it as the base (makes a nice foot rest, too), and cut the Kosei off just below the spokes so it isn't so wide. Then I'll make a stand like Silverchild was talking about, but with flanges at both ends for studs and lug nuts. I'm thinking it'll be more along the lines of a bar table- about 4' tall, with a 3' circular glass top.

    A friend. I dunno how the Kosei got out of round. Oh- it's a 15x7 with an ITR bolt pattern. The Rota is a 17X7 with a 5X100 pattern. Both wheels were on his cars.

    Go figure.

    lay a piece of plexi over it and wire some neon lights into the center of the wheel. The whole table will glow around the edges and tint the color of the neon. Pretty cool party favor or whatnot.
