Re: Spinner wheels for motorcycles (jbell)

I've seen them in action in rap videos. Impractical, yes
, but I'm sure they can be purchased somewhere.

I actually think they look awesome on bikes

only because they aren't *quite* as bling
i'd rock 'em, if i had a bike, and the disposable income in which to drop on spinners

Re: Spinner wheels for motorcycles (AndrewT)

An inquiring mind that happens to know a fair bit about motorcycles wants to know: Why would anyone want to do this?
Maybe I'm getting to be an old fart, but I don't get the purpose of installing silly-looking things that don't accomplish anything, and this is one of those ...

With the bikes they aren't as pronounced and "in your face" like 26" chrome spinners on an Escalade for example. The wheels are much more obstructed as well. Plus they're aren't absurdly bigger than the stock wheels, unlike with cars and trucks

There was a video of them posted a while ago
Looked really cool http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

c'mon guys all he wants to know is where to get them not how you feel about them...

I'm not a big fan of them either, but I simply wanted to know where they can be bought. Some people *cough*second post*hack/wheeze* can't comprehend a simple question.

where's the animated pic of the guy in front of the spinners making circular motions?

Haha, I was thinking of that when I posted this topic

Thanks for the links guys.

On the first and last wheel you can see that there is a stationary piece, but the middle one doesn't look like that. I am talking aout the truth wheel. In the picture the whole center spins.

i'm sure the hub in the very center stays still, while the rim spins around that. you can't really tell from that pic, but something has to be staying still.....or maybe it's the front wheel.
