    I'm from the old school of firestone/goodyear etc white letter tires. Just looks good to see those things spinning. Ever think of designing your own wheel decals?

    So, here she is. Built up & ready for glue. The rim has a slight "blip" in it. Very minor but, should be noted. Other than that it is spinning smooth & should ride great. For the price, still a...
