Re: [DML] Re: all this tire stuff brings me to ask a question.

That brings to mind something stored in my small, but
active mind. Spinners....   I took my dear uncle out
for a spin in the "D" and at a stoplight on the way
home, a Bentley, a pimped out black Bentley, with
darkened windows pulled up next to me. A hand came out
of the driver's window, thumbs up and the driver
honked. Car couldn't have been more pimped out.
Spinners, wire wheels,GPS shark tail, you name it, it
had it. ChicagoPaul
