If you have a wood felloe wheel that needs new wood and new rims, do you have to supply the rims or will Stutzman's do that for you and charge you for the woodwork and the rim?
I don't know if they will buy the new rims for you or if you have to buy them yourself and send them, but it will cost you a lot less to buy an old rim that's in good shape. A new non-demountable rim will cost you $145 + shipping.
Dave, I asked that same question of Noah last year when I dropped off two of my '15 rims to be re-felloed/spoked. Basically he suggested that I acquire my own rims, he'd do the rest. I don't think he wants to get into the actual rim business.
You can buy new rims here if you can't find good used ones:
American Vintage Rims will drop ship directly to Noah Stutzman. I did it with mine and it worked out great.
I was in the neighborhood so I dropped off my cleaned up hubs and the rims arrived shortly afterwards.
What does it cost for new wood if you take your old wheels to Stutzman's?
Mine cost around $250 each. However, my wheels were 28 inch and wood felloe, so T may (or not) be less.
One thing's for sure -- The Stutzmans turn out some beautiful, high-quality work.
Rob's about right on for the 30/30.5 wheel also. I think I paid something like $460 for a pair for the right side of my '15 last year. Like Mike said, superior work. Even the wife said it was a shame to have to paint 'em black! Can't wait to get the wheel I have for my '13 back from them. Then I can get more cheese at Guggisberg on the way!!! LOL
Price was $175 per wheel a couple of months ago. That was using my clean and primed hubs and parts, and I supplied the joining plates, bolts and nuts. Noah did all of the wood work and privided the tube for the valve stem.
