Re: This has to be a typing error.

no no, these are just the special edition kevlar weave reinforced titanium alloys with 36 Carat diamond valve caps with bullet proof tyres. They are simply sprayed silver to look like normal cheap alloys making them less attractive to would be thieves.

Re: Performance side skirts
