    Rim Failure



    I picked up some high grip tires some time ago and finally went to test them. My buddy and I were at the skate park tearing it up. It got full and we went downtown for some drifting fun. The rally tumbled a bit and the tire went rolling down the street. It was funny to watch. Somewhere between the skate park and the tumbles downtown the wheel cracked and it just shattered.
    I knew I had the wrong styled rims for the skate park but i could not resist. So much fun! Time to get a new pair!

    Thats where I picked these up! I won't be using these rims again. I like the tires though. Too bad it's a combo deal...
