Default 3 Piece Wheel barrels / lips

I have a set of B-Forged 3 piece wheels... B-Forged/Billet Specialties will not sell replacement barrels or lips, they say for "insurance reasons". Anyone have a suggestion as to where I can buy "quality" lips/barrels to re-hoop these wheels. TIA

whats the bolt count? Barrels are only made by a couple sources so more than likely you can source elsewhere.

40 Bolt Count. I have found a place online, but they told me they were "wholesale" only. I wish I could find out where Billet Specialties/B-Forged bought their barrels/lips.....

I'm checking with a friend that does wheel refinishing and seeing what he can come up with.

Marcus beat me to it. Independent Wheel specializes in doing this especially for the brands that are no longer around like Kinesis

http://www.independentwheel.com/


Might as well mention these guys too in case anyone else needs to find parts for multi-piece rims https://store.blackforestindustries.com/ I found them when looking for BBS information and parts.

We should make a sticky at the top of the forum for this info.....
