I like it brother. It reminds me of when All American would wear her 73 inchers with the chrome rims. Absolute win.

The pins on the back of the rim were BIG had to drill out the holes on the drive hubs so that they would fit. I know that TXT rims have a bigger pin but i had some TXT drive hubs. These rims are a knock off of the TXT .
