I doubt that the small(ish) numbers of kappa owners alone will inspire many businesses to make product for them-- it's an awfully small pool of customers to make special product for.swatthefly said:start contacting the companies that make rims and let them know there is a strong interest!
true... kappa owners arent going to outnumber much of anything, BUT, how many people do you think actually take the time to contact a company and request something be made? i think if they found that people out there were wanting rims to be made in that size, it would motivate them to do it faster. a product that has a proven interest rather than a speculative one would certainly make it to the market sooner. besides, even if it doesnt work, what have you lost? a phone call?mdlestat said:I doubt that the small(ish) numbers of kappa owners alone will inspire many businesses to make product for them-- it's an awfully small pool of customers to make special product for.
It's not like these two cars are gonna sell 50K a year or anything-- I suspect they actual sales will be kinda meager, in all honesty. I guess we'll all see though...

That would allow for almost infinite # or rim possibilities.. I know its not a cost effective
option, but would allow those with the means to choose their favorite rim.
I got a response from the company;brentil said:For example I contacted a company that makes 3M clear bras in order to find if they have plans, and if not to drum up interest on their part for a Solstice kit.
