    now your making me want some wires for my s15, except I'd want bolt on wires, I've heard to many bad stores about the other kind.
    If you can't do your custom work yourself then sell your ride.

    i tell u what though, i would never do that again lol. last time i find a deal like that. my fingers are killing me from the spokes and through the whole process, i was getting little pieces of steel wool stuck in my skin lol. shit hurts. but only parts that have a lil bit of rust is the nipples that shadow the ones on front and around the hub, but i might know someone who can dip them and derust them, but they need to be rechromed so i wont bother probably

    well all wire wheels blt on same way. they make an adapter that the wheel goes onto and the knockoff of course holds the wheel on.

    Does anyone remember from the 90's Hashipoor 2000? The spelling might be off, but it was some paste like substance with a bit of a gritty substance in it. They claimed it would remove Iodine from clothes and you could wipe it onto mirrors and it would prevent steaming. Places like Spencer's in the mal sold the stuff "as seen on TV."

    Well, anyways; a friend of mine's father worked at Toyota back when we were in middle school. One day he had brought this ast home from work that they used to polish chrome and it would also remove surface rust without damaging the chrome. Used it on our bicycle spokes, and the paste worked great; just wipe it on and rub it out.

    Sure as shit, that TV stuff and that paste my boy's father brought home is basicaly the same stuff. Don't know if any of you guys know what I'm refering to, or what it might be sold under today, but there is something out there that will clean those rims up with very little effort.
    hey man, i dont have that brand but i have some stuff from back in the early 90's late 80's cant remember the brand or name right now, but it is a white chalky substace and you take a wet rag and rub across it... and then just go to work polishing, it works wonders. its good for chrome, brass, mirrors etc.

    Did it come in a tube like toothpaste? I'm sure that we are on the same page. Good shit, surprised the stuff isn't still widely sold.

    I was very young when Fast Times was on HBO, so I don't feel so bad admitting that I've made my buisness with Pheobe Cates. :D


    Back in the day, McClean was the big-dog wire wheel company that made bolt-on wires. Dayton was the shiz with the real knockoffs. LA Wire actually made both, coming on later in the wire game. When LA came on, that's when the 100+ spokes started to show up.
    As a side, the "Daytons" that KD stole from that guy at the burger stand in Menace to Society were actually McCleans.
