    I really like the rims! Are they bright chrome or that smokey chrome? Hard to tell on my iPad.
    Not yet thirty and already fussing about knees...just wait. l'm just shy of 46 and sometimes I just
    wake up in the night going "what the hell is that and why the hell is it hurting so much" ;-)

    Kadylac. Yes they are nice. I'm hoping they hold up. And the rims are bright chrome they shine. And they are Giovannas which are relatively expensive. Wrapped in new lexani tires. And I know I've moved too much heavy weight in my teens. My body does not like it now

    How do you like those Lexani Tires so far? This weekend I'm installing a new set of 22" Lexani LX-7 wheels (22x8.5) with Lexani LX-Nine tires (245/30R22).
