      In pretty sure you cracked them before the blow out only because of how you and Sean described the car handling and because if you had cracks it after the blow out it would be a more severe crack Also look at how you cracked the other barrel and the tire is completely intact and had zero bubbles

      bumper is very nice, but I think we should keep it on the d/l. I like the uniqueness.

      You should put a euro plate on the bumper that says "deez nuts" or "balls deep". Something real classy like that

      sounds like a nightmare trip hope you turn it back around and manage to keep the gotti's though but id agree with the top of the page in that it was cracked prior and slowly leaking,that one crack thats opening up into a V at the end is usually an indicator that the crack has been driven on for a distance

      I have 215/45/17 falken 512s on the 9.5 on my rear. 225 wouldn't be enough stretch, that's my opinion though, go 215.

      I feel like 225 is a perfect stretch on a 9.5, I run a 225/40 on my 18s. I know the sidewall is a different size but I still think it looks fine.

      I've had several sets of them and they've always lasted awhile for me and ofcourse stretch well.

      225/45 and 9.5 is the perfect width imo. 10's were just too much for the 205/45 nankangs.

      i'll prob go 215/45/17 512 when i go 9.5. i liked the 205/45 on my sawblades so that size 512 should stretch perfect.

      This is the 3rd failure I've seen with nankang tires, just on b5's...

      I would not feel safe having that many cracks welded, at that point the metal is so stressed its just going to continue being a problem

      I don't have any other choices right now. I'm trying to find a place that i can buy new barrels.

      My friend welds for a living and he does all my welds and he said the wheel will be fine.
