    I voted for the USMC one, the other one makes me scared to reach in for the hub. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I kinda like the "multi-hole" myself. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    They are not sharp and even when taking the lug nuts off you don't get too close to them. I voted marine ones too!

    go with the USMC, devil dog, only way to go with that camo pattern you have.

    btw, i dont think it matters of the points are "sharp"ened on those wheels, I know that it would only be a matter of time before I impaled my hand on one while messing with a hub, the locks nuts, or the lug nuts. They may not be sharp, but they are pointed and I can already draw blood with a normal "knuckle buster" on something smooth, I don't even want to think what would happen if I slipped and hit one of those points really hard. ouch! not a knock on cyberfire at all, his products rock and hes an all around good guy... i just personally wouldnt run the pointy ones cause Im a clutz. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    USMC, might get you less flak when you are working on it on base. You'll have a better chance at a pass from a cop, and I think the spikes are overdone.
