Default Re: Alcantara Wheel

you should have the microfiber cloth rung out fairly well to where it is just damp when cleaning. The wheel will not get very much moisture, but you should still dry it when you are finished.

Even BMW's wheels has its own flaws. Its the nature of the beast when doing the steering wheel. The circle on the left is what is done to correct when the Red and Light blue stitching gets off track from each other. The circle on the right gets done at the seams sometimes because its difficult to get that section together.

I've purchased many brand new wheels from BMW. I'm fully aware of the OE quality.

I wasn't asking for ungodly perfection, I was asking for OE quality/perfection. There's a huge difference when it comes to paying someone to rewrap a wheel. I was hugely disappointed by Tainik and wasn't about to make another mistake. He couldn't even get the line straight...

I see your point.

This is the wheel I am working on for myself.

I saw that, looks very nice. Kind of amazed how simple the stitching is. I thought the entire stitch was done on the wheel (all three threads). Definitely puts it into perspective with those pics (only one thread joins the ends together).

If I was looking for an OE job again, you'd be the guy I'd talk to.

Isn't CobyWheel Mike (m123) on these boards? If so, I got my alcantara boots from him. Excellent work.

Coby (Mike) did mine about a year ago and I'm still super happy with it. Mike was quick and upfront about everything.
