Yes you want to be careful i used that bit and once the bearing rode the lip on a titan rim it ground it too far i lost one rim because of it and now looking for another. I have since machined the router bit and made the bearing sit closer to the body hope it fixed my problem now. (my new titans im not cutting at all i took off my hubs and machined them for a 3in center so now i never have to cut wheels again)

Yeah, go slow---- and also, check the allen-bolt that holds the bearing in. It came off on my second pass and the router gouged an extra 1/4" through the side!!! I made a big stink at Osh and they gave me a new, sharp bit- even though I found the bearing and couldve kept goin ( I wanted a sharp bit!! haha)

Correct me if im wrong but when you balance a wheel it uses the center bore to ensure its true. So how can you enusre your router is cutting true. to me i took my wheels to a machine shop and for the 100 bucks they charged me it was well worth it.

The bearing riding the rim where it is not being cut is what makes it cut true.

u need the bit that u showed us, and a flush trim bit with the bearing on top!
once u are done with the rabbeting bit and have gone as far as u can go without riding the lip, then switch over to the flush trim but, ur gonna have to do it all at one depth but u just gotta maneuver the router so u only cut a little bit at a time. ive done three sets of eskies this way, all gm wheels have that gay ridge on the wheel.

it doesnt even matter if your center hole is perfectly true or not cause most of these factory gm wheels are lug centric not hub centric...

go to youtubes HOW TWOS and jus get an idea how its done. i di my titans with a dremel it wasn't the best job but who gonna see it. and the back rims i didn't even touch them jus got some 1/4 spacer and it was good. BTW how much does a machine shop charge. here in Hawaii i called a shop andthey wanted $175 per rim thats when the dremel came out
