    Sorry I'm not educated very well on exactly which wheel this is, not sure if it's considered a smoothie, or a steelie ,etc., etc. If anyone could tell me exactly what wheel it is, and where I can buy a set I would gladly appreciate it.[​IMG]

    They appear to have the slots of a deep chrome reverse wheel. The one most of us prefer over a smoothie.

    It's hard to tell by the picture, but it looks like a Chrome reverse which is based on an oem wheel with the outer ring flipped and the whole assembly chromed. There is a few companies making them and there is a big difference between a smoothie and a real chrome reverse. BTW it looks like it has spider caps too.

    They'e definitely reverse wheels, notice the relief for the disk brake caliper is on the outside of the wheel, instead of the back where it was originally.
