    combat rims

    Love the look and ease of changing the tire on theses guys (espec since no one will touch the spring rim). I got a full set of 5 and had them blasted, there in good condition. The kicker though is that their ring studs need to be replaced. I checked Midwest and vintage, the cheapest i could find...

    M37 vs b1
