All our wheels are chrome plated to BS Service Condition 4 using 30 microns of Copper Nickel and Chrome. The old traditional way! The rim and centre are hand polished using felt bobs and mops, giving a mirror finish, even polishing the back of the rim. For the concourse competitor! Being a Press tool Maker by profession I've copied the original 1960s style Dunlop splined centre. Making it from Deep Drawing quality steel. It has the deep curly section, not like the imported heavy forged ones.

Also, having made the centres correctly I'm able to 3 cross the short spokes for maximum strength and rigidity. Just like Jaguar specified in the 1960s! The Spokes and Nipples are carbon steel chrome plated as above. Then de-embrittled to eliminate hydrogen embrittlement. We use 4/7 gauge butted spokes with a rolled thread for the ultimate strength without excess weight. Stainless steel Spokes and Nipples are also available
