My Foose Speedsters installed

Well, after being hidden for almost a year, I finally installed the 19" x 8.5" Foose Speedsters that Brad found for me.

Thanks guys. The wheels are still growing on me since I had the 3pc Simmons wheels on it for so long. I definitely like the 19's over the 17's though....except the tire prices.

So...do you still have your Simmons wheels? Are they for sale?

Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward.

I do still have them and they are not for sale. I posted pics in the wheel pic thread.

I see a bunch of work cleaning them each time with that row of rivets,bolt's or what ever they are where the spokes meet the outside ring.

I'm more about keeping the maintenance lower. Nook's and cranny's make for more work.

Yeah, cleaning will be some work, but since I'm moving from 3 piece wheels with bolts all-around the rim, my cleaning load hasn't really increased.

Nice! After seeing a bird with 20s, I didn't like the look, and my 17s are too small, I thought 18s was the sweet spot for our cars, but I change my mind, 19s look great.

I agree. I think 20's are too big, but mainly because I need some tire sidewall because of all of the potholes
