model A wheels
« on: January 11, 2015, 05:23:22 PM »
I've heard mixed things against  using old wire wheels. Mainly they're not designed for high speeds. I have some I want to use on the front of my jeep.Can anyone shed some light on this?

They will be fine as long as you don't do burn out's our hard turns......I run mine at 65 mph and they are smooth.

I've seen that video and those rims have to be after markets........I have several sets of original rims and they wobble so much, it was hard to get a balance on them at the tire shop.

I have no idea, I just thought that I'd throw it out there; it is entertaining if nothing else...
