mmm, beadlocks. :)

I got my beadlocks in, its a DIY kit for KORE. Anyway, Cragar Soft 8s 17x9, you polish the paint off the lip and weld in the inside ring.

All the wheels polished and the rings sitting in place.

I may get the insides powdercoated silver and do sonic blue rings... but sonic blue paint is so expensive i just dont know. i can get it in cans but it doesnt coat well unless you use a gun, which I dont want to do.

for now, black and silver.
