Default 23mm Hex on Genny Wheels????

Like everyone else I like a bit of bling on my truck.

Because of this I recently bought a set of 23mm hex's (GSS06) in blue anodised alloy. Very nice I thought.

When they arrived today, I now fint Genny standard wheels are ~19mm, NOT 23mm [:@][:@][:@]

I don't like the white Nemesis wheels [:'(] and want to keep the chrome ones.

But I am sure they are fitted to the GST 7.7 and that has the chrome wheels.

So, are there two types of chrome rim then, 19mm and 23mm????????

Dustin, He said he got them thats how he realized they dont work on his Genesis Because the Genesis wheels have 19mm not 23mm

He needs to get the 23mm GSt wheels

Which can be found here:

Good Luck And Have Fun!!

Hmmmmmm.

GST wheels go for ~$70 on FleaBay, that seams like a bit expensive just to get fancy wheel nuts.

Maybe I flog them off. []

Mind you, I do have plans to get a set of CNC wheels made next years. Maybe they can be 23mm Hex.

ScottGTR, If you can get aluminum Wheels made for the Genesis series that are close to the same size, you will be a god. I am sure several of the bling crowd will buy several sets. I can think of at least 30 people that would pay well for them!! Myself Included!!

I think I'll look into it then.
The idea would be to have them the same size, I can't stand silly toy wheel on Genesis's.[:'(]

They will probably be split rim though.

I'll keep you posted.
