Mike, best of luck keep those rims round! You are braver than I, running those rubber bands on the ATL roads.

Glad the V8 project has come to functionality..... who said you couldn't finish anything?

It’s together- runs, drives, burnouts, goes for ice cream.

How are the wheels quality wise?

I am considering a set of these as well, I have some Eikers in 18" coming but always loved these when they used to be the original branded Gummi wheel.

Looks great!
