haha thanks...i was hesitant going with black, but since these rims were initially curbed to hell, might as well fix it up under the DIY and just let these be my winter beaters

Not only did they help a lot, they instill a level of confidence that it's dangerous

With the LM60ís, do you notice a flat spot on the tires if it sits for more than a few hours? Iíve got the WS70ís and itís pretty noticeable. Itíll work its way out in about half a mile or so but itís pretty annoying...

Cool winters.
Have you thought about putting some spacers on the rears?

I haven't noticed anything like that yet, but if it does develop a flat spot only a few hours later, i wonder how it's gonna be like leaving it overnight and stuff????

Itís sat for 5 days once and it wasnít any worse so no big deal, just annoying.

Anyhow, the black on black looks good! Very Johnny Cash.
