Project KP30; Stretch & Burn

Last week I finally decided on the tyres I wanted to get for my new rims. I settled on 185-60 Toyo Proxes on the rear and 165-65 Toyo 350s on the front. Through the wonder of the world wide web I placed my order with a few clicks and in 2 days they hit my door step. Good times.

Here is a 185 on one of the  the 9″s. Mmmmm bit of a stretch then…..

After enjoying a few vids of people burning themselfs on Youtube using the old hairspray trick I thought it only right I attemp it too.

OK, so the first few attempts did not go well and I lost most of the hair of the back of my hands. My next attempt was much more successful having the airline hooked up and the wheel the other way round so less of the hairspray could escape.


Kinda gives you an idea.

Rinse and repeat 3 more times.

Still need to order some longer studs and repaint them before fitting them up and spacing them. I hate how work gets in the way of everything and makes fitting a set of rims take a month! Oh well.
