My wheels were looking pretty rough after last season so I ended up picking up a set of new a60 hoops off of ebay for a good price. Sent my stock hubs to Bob at RTR Wheelacing to get them turned down and coated blue. After getting the hubs back, I tooked them to Keith at KSR wheels to get them laced up with Buchanan Spokes. I decided to experiment with a 3m 3d textured carbon fiber vinyl and wrapped the center of the hubs. I like the bling look without the price just not sure how long the vinyl will last lol. What do you guys think?

I think if I had those wheels and you had a feather in your butt, we'd both be tickled :thumbsup:

The 3m vinyl I used looks and feels like genuine carbon. They make a dry matte and a shiny version and I went with the dray matte.

265 for both hoops. I'm into the whole setup for 745 and that includes new tires and 20 bucks to mount them.
