I vote 6ULs, availability seems decent and I prefer them aesthetically.

+36 is cute

Anything in the 20s may need some fender rolling depending on your tire choice, but ultimately may look cooler.


Wait a minute, what’s wrong with your current notTE37s?

Who will you end up selling your unused track wheels and tires to?

Why is "weapons" the only thing in all caps? I mean, I'd be just as excited to find hoarded car parts as I would weapons, why isn't that in all caps too?

All caps means to scream it during your powerpoint presentation, I thought that was obvious.

My vote is for the Storms, but I'm biased. I was hunting for a set until I came across a really low cost set of Konig Helix (front wheel in this shot)
