    Demolition rims?

    I found the hoops for cheap and I was going to get them laced to my stock DK flip-flop hub.

    I've wanted a chrome rim for my back for a while and since I found these new and cheap I was wondering how good they are.

    Also, my current rim is starting to seperate at the joint, is there a way to prevent this in the future?

    Then look into the new Primo Balance rims, or the Hulahoops
    And if they dont have those either, look at the Sun City lites

    i have hula hoops. They're mad strong but the chrome peeled off after just a month, maybe less. They still stop fine though.

    demolition rims are fine. theyre a ***** to mount high pressure tires onto though... sort of like the triple wall hazard rim.

    Thats the kinda info I wanted to hear.

    What makes it so hard to mount a high pressure tire on?
