    I think the tires are completely impractical, hard to maintain, and look kinda odd, but they are cool as shit!!! :D

    I guess I like them a lot more now than I did two years ago, haha

    Speaking of a Fuel Hemi popping out of the hood,,,
    You photoshop guys should have a field day with this.

    Lets see some all white M&H Racemaster Dragsters on a set of polished 16X13 Halibrands,or American Bear Claws...(lettering in black or "chrome").

    Those are pretty funky....I like the front one, or at least I like looking at it. It looks minty, like a life saver. I wouldn't put them on a car, though. Cool as hell on the wall, as a novelty. Sooooooooooo..........ummm.....Is this what's holding up those "Royal Crowns"!?!? :D haha....How much do we need to raise to advance that cause a bit? haha....We'll pitch in!
     
  7. Want to bet the guy was looking at old negatives when he got the idea about white cheaters? lol

    Nah! When ya smoke a black tire it makes white smoke. Maybe a white tire will make black smoke! I never liked the white tires they made for slotcars and I like these even less. Yuk!!
     
  9. The tire smoke joke is on almost every page, that's awesome! :D

    I love em ! They are different and i think they look great ....

    THink about it guys , they are for a show car and are display only tires. When this thing gets parked at a show the tires alone are going to draw more attention probably than anything else there , just like this thread , some will be bad some will be good but this car is going to be getting a butt load of attention from the rubber alone . I say great job , mission accomplished

  22. The photoshops from gotgas have me sold. After spending a month panel painting my van, I can no longer ask "why?" to silly things. I can only ask "why not?" Nice work on some wild stuff man.

    "The most important statement that I can make is that we did this, My Dad and I. This is how good we are at what we do. Not that this is suppose to be anything more than what it is. Some people drink, some do drugs, some dress in womens underwear,......We build tires. Some times a white one or two."

    I may be bias here, but I for one know how hard Steve and Cody worked on this ONE pair of tires, And to ask "Why"... WHY THE F**K NOT!
    Crazy... maybe, but here at the shop they Eat, Sh*t, & Dream......TIRES!

    Like Cody has said many times "Have it your Way", And this is exactly what he did, You ask for it and he is gonna try it! You will not find many places that still have that kind of work ethic today. How is that for Tradition??? These Boys are using Molds for 1961, in a business that has been around for 50 Yrs! They cater to Purists and non Purists... What's your Flavor?
    You don't have to love'em, but respect our tradition of pushing the limits for a happy customer! That Happy Customer may be YOU someday! ;)

    Cody's Girl,

    Amazing job! Those are crazy.
     
  28. Look like giant erasers... Black tires leave Black marks... White tires are used to "erase" those black marks...!


    I agree... first tire manufacturer that can claim that they clean the tracks while racing...
