    Yeah, Vogues are high. BF Goodrich sells, or used to, a tire that has a gold stripe like the Vogues. Wherever Vogue puts the gold sripe, either outside of the whitewall or inside, the BFG's gold stripe is in the opposite position. That, and the whitewall doesn't have any patterns in it like the Vogue tire. They were called Gold Stripe or some shit like that.

    Edit:
    Scratch that. After Googling around, I realized that I was talking about the Uniroyal Royal Seal tire. They are not made anymore.:(

    damn that sucks, if i had the money vogues would be the way, but its jsut too much out of my range. right now my tires are mixed match, but next year ill roll 15x7's and i just prob get mediocre white walls, the thin white wall, not huge ones

    he must have been driving backwards pretty fast then because the way knockoffs spin on are done so that they stay tight when moving forward just like in indy car racing...

    so what came off? the knockoff or the adapter plate?

    and i agree with tukin... the knockoffs are made to spin opposite of the traveling motion. that means that the wheel would get tighter as you drive forward.


    but then again anyone can screw somthing up.

    you guys remember the thread where the guy was talking about his buddies 22s falling off, and that dimes werent made to have that big of a wheel and blah blah blah :rofl: :rofl:




    Oh and i like the wires on there. not too many dimes rolling spokes these days.

    i like it :bigthumb:
