I'm behind...might try an iPhone video for now....its really not that loud outside the car, the best sound to me is upon initial startup and idling, which is hard to capture. Revving it, it really doesn't sound amazing, just louder.

Thanks for the feedback!

Cool video! How long does it typically take to manufacture a wheel?

Hi, it depends...from start to finish from 4-6 weeks. The actual mill time depends on the design of the wheel.

I've installed new Nitto Invo tires... 255/30/22 and 295/25/22....so at this point I've tried


245/30/22 & 285/25/22 (Pirelli)
255/30/22 & 295/25/22 (Nitto)
265/30/22 & 305/25/22 (Pirelli)

I will provide driving impressions of each size.

Hey Mike, you want to know something hilarious? I've been calling one of my bikes the Big Bertha, and for the life of me I had no idea how it came to be... and then I just remembered you used to call your LS that, and it stuck with me. :ROFLMAO:
