    I had saw the spinners at my LHS and they looked cool, question is do they reall spin, im interested in this also. I think they are alittle expensive, if I remeber correctly its 50 bucks for 2 of them, am I correct?

    At my LHS they are 26.99 pair. I was wondering if they actually like real spinners. If they are any good i will probably get them.

    ya im pretty sure they make them for the tc3. that would be sweet. i saw them with a hummer body so im not too sure of the car. it specifically says for street use onyl so i definatly think they would brake or chip and bend if u rolled the truck. they must stick out a little or at least i would think so

    ive got a movie with an truck thats letting um spin. They spinned for 10 secs. So isnt that worhtless. But those spinners were on a vel,ocity 60 rim with big joes, that makes me think its a bah truck. I asked the guy how the spinnerz worked and he said:

    "i went off a jump and kept working, for the first 5 times....then i landed on my side and bent it totally. So it didnt spin anymore"

    so only if ur planning on making a street car get them, if ur a basher dont. Ull get sand between them and they will definatly brake.
