    144 spoke wheels?

    wtf! can you really buy wheels like this or are these custom made? i never seen wheels like this anywhere & never knew they existed. with my history of wheels snapping spokes, these look like winners in my mind!: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll..._BIN_Stores_IT

    Looks like low-rider stuff. Impressive stuff - can you imagine building a wheel with that many spokes and not scratching the chrome?

    Yes you can buy them but they are heavy so there only really any good on lowriders for slow cruising .you can also get fan spokes , 72 spoke .

    Iirc,, they need a special tool for the spokes too due to space.
