Good God! Do you even bother to put air in those rubber bands? Sure is a lot of white on that jeep! Just sayin'

I don't know why I do it to myself. 30 seconds on goggle and I find those rims. Diablo elite. What a waste of money, and a lot of it for that matter. They probably had to spring for extra to get them plastic coat white! Even worse so we're the two spoke sets further down the page. I can't wait to find the tyres! I bet my golf cart has a greater load index ;-)

ugh. I just found them: 275/25ZR26 with load 98 (surprising) and speed W

Sure as I had called it a hood, I would have been told it's a British vehicle. It's a bonnet. Hoods are something gangstas wear.

Always loved the Willys wagons and have owned and restored a few. Their only drawback was they never made a 4-door version (technically they did for the railroads).
