got some new wheels and yes i have to be different so i got a little creative with the powder gun.





didnt some out to bad not exactly what i was looking for but looks alot better in person.i was really wanting shamrocks up front.the wheels actually put me too wide now.they are 3-2 offset same as stockers but the rim itself is narrower causing the tire to buldge and putting mu just over fiddy inches.measuring from the outside of the rim to the face of the wheel they are only about an 1/8 - 1/4 wider but the backside is about an inch less than the stocker.im hoping with some holeshots the tire is a little narrower and wnt bulge as much.if i would have known this i would have got the 4/1 offset rims and the rims that i actually wanted.i am getting a set of hipers and wanna try there new non beadlock front so i will see where that puts me

I actually like the white the more I look at it...

Could you explain the non-beadlock hiper a little more, I haven't heard they were doing this until now?

hiper is now making a non beadock front wheel.it only comes in a 4'1 offset only reason i have held off ordering it.but it is cabon fiber but more like a douglas rolled edge wheel.i believe it is smooth on both sides as well.kinda like the inner side of the old wheels.should be pretty light.

yes it will be a challange keeping them white.i really wanted to do them blue to match the frame but need to locate the powder first.hopefully by the time they get trashed ill have a match.then strip em down and redo them.but the white looks sweet.

on a side note with the 3/2 offset douglas wheels you see there with the stock tires i am about 50 1/4'' wide in the front.the rims are almost the same from the face of the wheel to the outer edge but do to the overall width of the rim being narrower the tire buldges out that much.
