Jaconty and tripwire, do you guys have any closer pics of where you ran the weld bead? Was it run only on the rear side or both the rear and the front side. Jaconty's don't appear to have a weld bead on the front but the Tripwire's sprint stars it's hard to tell. I'm wondering from an engineering standpoint only if it's strong enough to weld a perpendicular flange (the ring with the holes) from only one side. The results btw look stunning.

There is an Instagram account entitled "tonytalksalot" and that guy has finished a set of three piece, 5x205 factory centered wheels. They are delicious.
