I dont want to go and order some crazy expensive set of custom made rism for this project.
I called Stockton wheel last week for a quote on a custom made wheel and they charge less than 150.00 per wheel..not really crazy expensive if it solves the problem...

Why so skinny?

my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
