Yeah I am definitely loving mine. A little stretch with the 235/30 tire on mine is looking dead sexy. I just need coilovers now.

Yours now are so damn aggressive i love it.

His wheels are true 3 piece. Just break the silicone seal, unbolt. Re-bolt, and run fresh bead of silicone to seal them up.

just like laguna said, mine are the 3 piece. work also makes a 2 piece version of the meister as well though.

Thats why i did the flush mounted ones inside the barrel. Pain in the ass for air, but they're invisible.

I understand i wanted to ask becouse i saw and article on fatlace from work factory and as i quote
Quote:
Work Wheel doesn’t put glue, they actually weld their 3 piece wheels together. When the wheel is damaged being it a 3 piece, they have machines to break the welds. This isnt the same type of weld they do on their 2 piece builds but its done to ensure a solid wheel.
here is a link to whole coverage couse i dont want to quote the whole thing

Interesting. Everyone one i know with 3 piece works are sealed with silicone. You can even buy new lips, barrels from Work.

Maybe a different batch, or something?
