DISCLAIMER: WEAR A DANG RESPIRATOR THAT IS METAL FUME RATED BEFORE WELDING OR GRINDING ON OR PAINTING WITH GALVANIZED STEEL!!!!!! For serious. It can kill you. No, I'm not even joking.
The arbor plates I cut before from 1.5" thick steel are fantastic but heavy and a bit awkward for much of the pressing I do for small parts. So, I took the drops from the last cut and sliced off 8" long sections to use, then cleaned up the edges. Easy peasy.

Yes, it is a terrible photo, but it gets the point across. Civic VX rims with Bridgestone Blizzaks. I'll pop the center caps on tomorrow.
Initial impressions are okay. Steering is easier, braking is less firm. Traction is very good in the chill. Ride quality report after my commute tomorrow.
