Custom rollers
The low offset style often involves expert customizing, and the sheer number of choices is mind boggling. Ralph Wright and Paolo Caoile of Simple Wheel Werks in Stanton, CA, have customized wheels for over five years. They've built two-piece and three-piece rollers that range from 14 inches to over 20 inches. The shop can change everything on a wheel; from the bolt pattern to the type of lip, and even the diameter.

Ralph says the process can take three to four weeks and typically ranges from $1,200 to $3,000 depending on the desired options. The machine work and final assembly are all done in-house while any kind of plating, powdercoating, and painting are outsourced. "We treat every order like a custom order. We like to go over all of the details with the clients because our goal is to make them happy," he states. The shop takes local, national, and international requests.
