Bentley T Type Single Seater Wheels

As a regular customer, Classic Performance Engineering knows where to come for their remanufacturing solutions – KW Heritage offer a one stop shop solution for such a busy company.  So when one of their prized possessions required two new sets of replacement wheels, KWH were entrusted with the work.

The challenge

  • To provide a solution considering the low volume requirements and minimal ongoing demand, working to a budget.
  • Whilst complete authenticity in terms of material and manufacturing method wasn’t paramount, retention of the style and proportions of the original wheels was vital.

 

The approach

  • Compile a simple pictorial document using sample original wheels, showing key dimensions, material and weights, in order to secure estimated costs.
  • Research and appoint a reputable wheel manufacturer.
  • Scan the sample wheels to provide a digital archive.

 

The results

  • Employ tried and trusted 3 piece Wheel technology as a cost effective solution, using a bespoke, authentic looking centre piece and standard Inner and Outer Rims.
  • This method has the added benefit of ease of repair by swapping out one or more components of the Wheel if required.
