I've had a number of offers Including Bell040 here in Bama. Thank you guys. Ya'll are awesome. This forum rocks. When the time comes I may do it.

Here is a message I sent to Bell040 I thought I'd just share with everyone.

Disclaimer before Scott beats me to it: I'M AN IDIOT

I'm hopped up on Lortabs this morning. I went out and put the 22" rims on my car and took some vid of the edge as I spun them by hand to show the bounce. Third wheel I was spinning real fast and cuaght me finger between the spoke and caliper. Broke the *uck out of my finger and ripped the skin almost completely off the entire top. Crushed the shi* out of it. 2 hours of sewing and 5 hours in the ER.

Got it on video. Didn't catch the finger on but the audio is priceless. You can hear my finger snap. lol

I really had no idea that 22" wheels run this risk. Maybe I should have stayed with 20s? Nah! Those 22" wheels look too sweet.

I'm uploading the vid now. lol

It happens in the first couple seconds. I'm pretty loud in the vid so might want to turn it down after the 'Snap', oh and the there is nothing for the rest of the vid until the last two seconds and you'll here me pretty much sum it up right there. (F-word warning.)

But, BOT, I am going to upload the vids of the wheels too, so you guys can tell me what you think.

Ok, here is one of the wheels. This is what I was trying to capture. My purpose for the vids was to ask you tire guys if this is real bad or moderately bad. The bead psrt moves as well. This is not just the high lip because the whole tire moved with the rim at the shop.

The 'Other' vid is loading.
