Old news guys. Been there done that.... (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

Just make sure you use a decent brand tire, not a cheapy General like I did for testing...

I think I'd rather have those fake ones that you snap in under the bead when you mount the tires on the rims!!!(also JC Whitney!!) (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)

Can you still get Porta Walls??? I think that was what was referred to above by ardog... they were popular back in the day....

Title: Too cheap to pay for Cokers?
Post by: Steve on April 13, 2008, 07:20:11 AM
I thought they were outlawed because they would fly apart and hurt people

how safe can they be weakening those sidewalls must be dangerous

Post by: firedome on April 14, 2008, 04:11:34 AM
They don't weaken anything, they just sit on top of the tire wall, held by the bead.

GREAT!
 
One more reason fer MoparSiss to SMACK curbs...  REPLACEABLE WHITEWALLS!...  (http://moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley7.gif)
 
I know those were available back in that day, but I had NO idea they were still on the market.  Let's hit a few MORE curbs (http://moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)
 
Cutting into a tire's sidewall to reveal it's true color can't be safe!

AW C'mon Matt!!! Where's your sence of adventure?!?!?!
The guy in the video said your only taking off 1/16th of an inch so how bad can it be?
Sis probably takes off more than that bouncing off the curb!!!(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)
Just kidding Sis we know its probably Matt hitting the curbs!!(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

Below's a pic of the tires I had made at DiamondBack Tires. http://www.dbtires.com (http://www.dbtires.com)
They do cost some, but the quality is great;
