    Hey all, I called method and asked if they possibly had drawings for the anodized center ring. From what I understand, it is a simple press fit. The guy told me the engineer that designed it was out for a few weeks. If anyone has details on the center ring or is actually in possesion of one, PM me.

    I can design and machine some easily, just need some specs.

    it's just a hub spacer right? take the size of our hubs, the size of the Method wheel hub, purchase the appropriate aluminum wheel hub spacer, get it anodized red....done deal.

    Something like this...

    The bottom extrusion just presses into the center of the wheel where the cap would be.

    I like it but skinnier I think. Also the Method one was just a concept never put in to action
    I know guys who have been waiting on it for awhile.

    Like MAXX said, it is just a concept as of right now. Nothing has been put into production for it, yet. Hopefully they will soon. There is a pretty good demand for it...

    Its been a concept for some time now, maybe the Chinese don't want to make it? Or Method is too busy filling Raptor orders to worry about it.

    I would be willing to make some, I just need some exact dimensions from method.
