For Sale:

Beautifully CNC machined from 303 stainless steel, so no rust ever. (not authentic, I know)

Correct .442 inch diameter for a tight shrink fit. Intentionally .030 longer than stock for better registration in the wheel. I would strongly recommend the hubs be properly heated for installation, so the hubs really should come off the car for install.

Expensive, as I only had two sets made, one for me and one for you. $300 for a set of 20, postage included within the U.S. Actual postage costs outside of the U.S.

2nd photo shows, in order: a zinc plated original with OEM rust pits, one of the new stainless ones, and a 'repro' plated steel one from a set I bought from a UK supplier that wasn't even close to fitting in the hub or the wheel.
