    This post is linked for the ebay feedback i left on the spinner rims that i purchased last week:

    I found a deal on some 15" spinners for about 22.95 to my doorstep.
    ...The perfect item to donate for the blazerfest raffle!
    (Thanks paramount13914 A++++++ Ebay Seller!!!)


    ..of course these needed some testing to see just how well they will hold up on a 4 wheeler...
    ...so i ran them on my truck friday and saturday before donating them into the raffle, for someone else to enjoy, (whats left of them).
    :D



    I put them on before driving down highway 101 to blazerfest.. I think just about everyone pulled up next to me and gave me a funny look.
    I smiled and laughed back at them. :rotfl:
    Everyone at blazerfest laughed when i pulled into camp. I tried to ignore them.

    The "simu-lock" beadlocks allowed me to air down my tires without fear of popping a tire off the bead.

    The spinners really helped the sidewall dig and provide traction when i was up against rocks and climbing out of ruts.
    [​IMG]
    Getting hung up in the rocks and doing burnouts just looked cool while the tires were spinning but the rims stayed still.

    After putting the spinnaz through 2 days of mud, rocks, trails, trees, roots, and rti ramps:
    Each spinner had 5 or 6 of the 16 or so spokes broken off, and the cone covers broke off of all 4 hubcaps. :crazy:
    However, they still worked and spun at the end of the weekend when they got raffled off. :thumb:



    Ultimately, Greg72 won the spinners in the raffle, and he was the talk of the town driving away while his rims stayed still.
    Hopefully someone got a pic of greg's ride with the spinners. :wink1:

    I highly reccomend geting a set of these for light wheeling and mall cruising!!

    That was damn funny when you came rolling into camp, stopped, and your spinners were still going. :haha: Too bad you dinged one up Thursday night on the Mini Rubicon.
