Getting Tech – Trimming Wheels

I hate the shape of wheels, especially larger wheels. They dome way too much. Unnecessary. I want more truck surface area, less weight, and why have extra baggage if it’s not necessary, right? Recently I decided to take the initiative to fix this myself. So, Dave and I played around with a mill and took a bit to our own wheels. Turns out, we like the results. See for yourself:

Psyched

Yup, pretty much sums it up
