Unfortunately it won't be at Wanee this year. Taking a travel Trailer.

Maybe Hulaween or BrrrrCreak.

Nice ride!

What are the 2 grey/red items that appear to be poking out of the rear behind the air intake?

And those EMPI 5 spokes are cool, never seen them in anything other than 5x205mm. Where did you find them 5x112?

I found a cool trick was to black out the support webs. Really gives a different look to the wheel. I did a quick edit on this one for an example.

LOL... got me thinking of my wheels now.

(Pic from 2009)

17x7 with a 40mm offset. Worked great with 225-55/17 on the rear, and 215-45/17 on the front. They started to corrode, so i took them off. I got them sandblasted, but leaving the chrome on the face and ring intact. Black out the rest, and they look like 19's.

And after searching, I finally found an image on my phone. :lol: KNEW I had one..

NOW to get off my a** and do the other 3. :oops: I moved out of the shop where that pic was taken over a YEAR ago...

Doing a bunch of work on the bus and I need new tires soon anyway... good motivation!

Thanks for the compliments!

The things behind the air vents are the ends of my Fiamma bike rack.

The wheels I got from CIP1. They are 5X112 and wrapped in Goodyear Cargo Vectors
(with the correct sidewall rating).

My bus is also dropped 4" all the way around.

VERY cool. They dont seem to list them anymore, just the speedwell replicas. (And I bet your tire out-specs the wheel now ;) )

Moving to the 17's with 55 and 45 aspect ratios did make a phenomenal difference in high speed handling. (Though ask Waneebe- even the stock 14's with Cooper tires 85+ mph was smooooooth up to SOSMP last time.)

Finding a 40mm offset and 2500Lb spec was a bit of a trick, but I have a local custom rim place that went the extra mile to hook me up.

I cant drop my bus, she may have 3/4 ton behind on a trailer, and another 1/2 - 3/4 inside when I am hauling. :) She is a working girl. :lol: But when I get in , the front drops 2-3 inches easy anyway. Not as much now that I weigh less than 1/8 ton. :P

Sorry your bus wont be at WANEE. Hugo will have his bus there, and bringing my secondary support trailer. Hope we get a few more at Camp Volke.

WANEE! WANEE!! WANEE!! WANEE!!!!

Those tents have been around a few years but not in the US. They really are way overpriced. It’s just a shelter with no floor. But darn cute.
