MSI - “Our Biggest Wheel Blank Ever” Southgate, California based MSI has released what it describes as its “biggest wheel blank ever - the 3D 34 incher.” Weighing in at 210 lbs. (wet), MSI says “it takes two guys to get this wheel on a pallet to ship.” Forged and machined from “prime” 6061 aluminum, “these behemoth wheels are manufactured here in California. It took over a year to make sure the tooling was accurate and met the Tire and Rim Association standards. “Manufacturing these wheels takes much longer than the normal sizes, so we have a limited quantity on hand.” Seen here are the already offered 21”, 26”, 30” blanks, now with the new 34 incher. MSI says it offers 28 wheel blank sizes in 2D and 3D formats, with rotors, pulleys, sprockets and hubs available, and that it also stocks a wide selection of tires from Vee Rubber and Shinko.
