    Some of the things he was talking about are subjective too. Like what is "mid speed cornering"? Is that a broad curve at 20mph or sliding through a 90 degree turn at 40mph....or neither?

    @DoorDing exactly what i was thinking. Would get a lot of views on YouTube, and sell more wheels. Until then a lot of people probably think it's just a gimmick. Like @Spoonman said, if it really works, should be an option on more of their wheels.

    Its almost like wrapping the bead seat area with duct tape. It just builds up the area so it will be a little harder to pop the bead. Definitely not comparable at all to any bead clamping device. A similar (better IMO) wheel design has already been on the market with the interco bird dog.
    https://www.intercotire.com/wheel/325

    I also wonder if anyone buying this wheel anticipates how much harder it will be to reset the bead once its off.

    Picked up a little beater/gas saver so I can put the Tacoma up on jack stands and get some work done. Fun little thing.

    Gas mileage is so good, I'm thinking about putting the OME lift on it and little KO2s :rofl:
    Gonna be adding some lights for sure tho. Too dark on this island...
    Very clean. No real rust other than a few small rock chips.

    When I was in high school my buddy had an awd crv and that thing was surprisingly capable off-road. Tough little bastard too.

    Redo the shock towers, redo the steering shaft to be straighter with less universal joints, add some kind of shock tower brace, add the hydro bumps, mount hydro assist ram. Lots of other things I want to do, but those are the priorities.

    i have a tank and i can say i dont think it helps much of anything when filling up tires. sure you can fill it up once beforehand but then it takes even longer for it to realistically pressurize.

    Very true. If you're wondering what it would cost for you to replicate, figure on 20 grand. That'll get you in the ballpark. But I doubt he's added up receipts. Most guys that do stuff like this don't. Because we don't really WANT to know what it cost.
