Default Getting 110 wheels poured on custom hubs

I'm a CNC machinist and have made a hub for 110 wheels out of aluminum based on the dimensions of Atom 110 indoor wheel. Now that I've made the hub, I'm trying to find somewhere to pour a banded outdoor wheel on my hubs. Any suggestions and information would be greatly appreciated.If I figure out a way to get some pictures of the hubs on this site, I will post them.
Thanks

For a different application, I've heard that Mearthane (MPC) and AEND have done small custom production runs (at a price). Since you're a machinist, you can produce the molds for them to pour into. Otherwise that's a major setup cost if they don't already have a set that are compatible with your hubs and the profile you want.

But since your wheels would be in direct competition with their existing customers, who knows what exclusivity agreements they have to limit who can get what compound?

Hi


I have some theories on what a good hub should look like. If you want I can have a look to help you on improving your design.

I've also been in contact with few manufacturers, so if you want to commercialize the wheels, I can share you my experiences.
