      I am interested in a set of 17x8 TH's, machined face. I notice that on some pictures, the face is recessed into the wheel while others the face is protruding. Is this due to differences in offset? Is there a way of knowing, in that size, what offset I would need to insure a recessed look?

      Also, can you machine face the TH2? If so, any pictures of that?

      Thanks

      The different looks of the TH wheel has to do with the different castings used for different sizes. Within each casting, the look is the same no matter the offset. This is the TH1780:

      TH1780








      It is available in offsets ranging from ET15 to ET45, but the look does not change.

      Unfortunately, the diamond-cut face option is not available on the TH2 wheel. According to Compomotive, the diamond-cut option was not taken into account when the wheels molds were made so the edges on the spokes do not have the needed angles on them. (I figured you'd appreciate a full explanation rather than just a "not available" response)

      That makes sense. So the 17x8's that I want, are all going to look one way regardless of the offset. Is there any chance of knowing what casting is used for a 17X8?

      For instance:

      That's what I was getting at All of the wheels in the previous post are the same TH1780. The car you posted has the TH1580 or TH1680 (not sure if 15" or 16"):

      TH1580


      TH1680


      TH1780

      See below. All weights are estimated because they vary by offset.

      Compomotive has just let me know that there has been some production delays so the TH1581 has been pushed back. The molds are just about complete and they expect to have production castings done in about 4 weeks.
