This next set of pictures I had mixed feelings on. On one hand I was happy that I have the only surviving set of wheels in the world like mine, but on the other hand someone destroyed a set of wheels.
Gary, the owner of a white SS had a rep from Air Lift taking his car out on the track for him. I'm guessing the 285 tires were WAAAAY too narrow for the 11" wheel and during a turn the bead broke and the wheel popped out of the tire and ground on the ground. This wheel is all but destroyed. Bismarck from USW is going to have a hell of a time fixing it and even fixed, I don't know if this will ever be 100% like new again.
It is a testament, however, of the strength and quality of the monoblocks USW puts out. They may be expensive, but imagine what a cast wheel might have turned out like after this.
Warning, this isn't for the faint of heart...
