LMFAO !!! I'm speechless, and confused. And that seldom happens. Someone step in and help me with this one....


HEY !!!! While looking for the appropriate emoticon to place on this post I found one that is VERY politically incorrect that I insist be removed immediately from the forum. Who do I have to F*** to make that happen??? :gay:

No cute little pink guy with a limp wrist. It does NOT roll that way around here. Moderators! Off with the emoticon. I'll try to find you something a bit more gay if you want.

I wanna a wheel

All I see in the autoguide app are two colons surrounding the word "gay". Maybe " : gay : " without the spaces. (Read I to that only what you want. It is simply what I see.) I don't see any limp wrist pink stuff here. It seems the autoguide app corrects any political incorrect stuff.

I don't think the rim job reference had any innuendos. The guy simply had a job done on his rim.

I assume that Shane got a pretty nice rim job for that. The wheel probably looks like new.

I was browsing and see that the only wheels of that style currently on ebay are over $150, and a set of four is currently for sale for about $900. That makes the rim job for $160 all that much sweeter.

Whoever admins the forum needs to go to the forum's supported list of smileys, which I'm assuming doesn't appear on the autoguide app. Perhaps you have emoticons turned off. Regardless, it needs to go. I have attached a .gif of the offending image.

edit - after humorous and unusual exchange of personal messages I have removed the links to urban dictionary definitions and instead suggest that the gentle reader google the terms rim job and rimming if they are unclear as to exactly what Shane received from the Classic Center. Actually, the gentle reader probably shouldn't google those... :-)

Ok. Ok. I brought it up to the other moderators. I'm a newbie moderator. No argument about the politcal correctness, but I honestly don't know how that stuff works. Please be patient, and don't take it personally. It's not like any of us in this forum have been using that emoticon or anything.

Edit:
The urban dictionary links are TMI. I think it would be more appropriate to ask others to google the terms or look them up on the urban dictionary. Feel free to edit those links out.

Can anyone confirm the equivalent part # for w116? I'm having a hard time locating these rims, too. I got my 4 hubcaps cleaned up and polished, got my 525G paint kit from the local paint/autobody experts and will paint them shortly. Fonzi suggested Hankooks 14 in tires in another thread. Anyone have good ideas for 14" with thin whitewalls? I'd prefer Dunlop, Pirelli and Michelin, then consider Goodyear or Bridgestone.

# 1084000002

I believe ordering #108400002 is guaranteed to fit w116.

thanks in advance,
endless....
