My birthday present

This mama got new Alcoa wheels for her birthday! Tires (Maxxis 8008), shocks & Centramatics too. Took them all out for a spin last week & the baby rode as smooth as silk! Thanks to my son, Paul, for installing them for me. He's a peach! It was a great birthday, just want to forget the number!

Very nice birthday present. Looks a lot more gratifying than fooling with the belly pan.

Looks good Becky. Can you talk him into taking care of the bellyskin project for your Christmas present?

That's the best idea I've heard all day! He's the one who is going to weld it! I'd have to do LOTS of begging for that one!

I learned about everything I got (as well as coveted them) on this forum! The tire guy by my house never heard of Maxxis so I ordered them online & had him put them on the rims. He was educated too!
