What are custom drilled wheels?Custom drilling wheels is the process of creating a bolt pattern on a wheel that is not available as a standard option. This is often necessary for vehicles with unique bolt patterns or when a custom bolt pattern is desired for aesthetic or performance reasons.
How are wheels custom drilled?The process of custom drilling wheels involves a few key steps:
- Measurement: The first step in custom drilling a wheel is to accurately measure the bolt pattern.
- Design: Once the bolt pattern has been measured, a design can be created to show how the new holes will be drilled into the wheel. This design will take into account the size and shape of the holes, as well as their placement on the wheel.
- Drilling: The next step is to drill the holes into the wheel. This is typically done using a drill press or a CNC machine, which allows for precise and consistent drilling. The holes are drilled to the specific size and depth specified in the design.
- Finishing: After the holes have been drilled, the edges of the holes may need to be deburred and smoothed to ensure a proper fit for the lug nuts. The wheel may also need to be refinished to protect it from corrosion and to give it a clean, finished look.
