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.

There is no visual of it anyway. Just audio. And it makes even ME cringe, and I'm the one who lived it. hahaha

Blood drops hit me neck and face when it happened. But the vid didn't get it.

Surely you want to here me scream??? Right??? Seeing as you hate me. hahaha

Now I'm curious....linky?

As to the spinning wheel...I have absolutely zero experience with this...but that would seem to give you quite a vibration going down the road...not to mention the toll the suspension would take.

I'm not going to watch the finger vid.

Spinning wheel thread does have a little hi/low to it, but I've seen much worse balance out perfectly. I think my own 22s are worse than that, but they ride perfectly.

But even if they balance, if the rim is going up and down, the road will pick it up, right? The tire was going up and down as well. If the tire and rim aren't round, how can they ride good? I'm confused.
