    Re: Brand spankin new 42\'s!

    Now, I'm wondering, *exactly* where do you live? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    You'll be surprised to see just how fast those things wear. I wouldn't be surprised if they were over half wore out within the next couple of weeks... /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Oh, and congrats! You're now a member of the "over 40 club"! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    They sound nice, ride pretty well, as good as my trued 42s did. I live sort-of in the boonies of Fremont on about 5 acres, lots of dirt, etc. The lube is from replacing the seal, didn't ever clean it off.

    Well Evan. guess you don't need me to help you get the better price now. How much did you end up paying for them and where did you end up getting them from?

    I got them from Naval at his shop for $1270. Recommended rim size is 16.5/9.5", which is what my rims are.
