Whats up ya'll. I have a cool tangerine next 20" bike (bmx) that I want to put 144 chrome spoke daytons on. I don't want to turn it into a Lowrider but just change the rims from 86 spokes to 144's. Can anybody post some pics of bmx bikes with 144 spokes on it?

My opinion is that White walls belong on lowriders. Having whitewalls on a bmx is like having whitewalls on a Honda civic! Just look at some choppers. Alot of them have 144 spoke like rims and don't have whitewalls but would look funny with them!

what about hot rods they have white walls and look just as good as lowriders with white walls, and there ant nothin wrong with hondas with white walls, hondas were mostly all lowriders untill the ricer scene came

i like hondas with whitewalls better than the ones with the shitty looking bumpers and wings. it looks good on choppers and motorcycles too i think. my gramps has whitewalls on his harley and i think it looks good

one of my BMXs has whitewalls.. but no 144s yet.. just some stock shit.. scuffed the fuck out of the whitewalls though..

I leant out one of my shitty mountain bikes to a friend who has his bike stolen.. came back to my house with a bent up rear rim, broken kickstand, broken front deraileur, and the seat was ripped apart on one side.. some old lady just clipped it.. didnt even stop either :uh:

Yeah, but most Hot Rods with whitewalls are old school cars. That Motorcycle looks good with it too but notice it has an old school style to it. Imagine whitewalls on a newer car like a Chrysler 300 and you'll see what I'm talkin' about. What I'm trying to say is that whitewalls look better on old school style cars because if they didn't you would see them more on newer cars/motorcyles/bikes than you would on old cars! Bmx bikes are newer style bikes...not old school.

choppers are different you cant put 144s on a bmx without some kind of white wall, its inhumane to even think about it i you want some wheels get yourself some deuces and leave the spokes for Gs to ride on

You just proved my point! thats ugly! Also notice how they tried to give it that old school look! If you want a old school car with whitewall then why not just get A REAL OLD SCHOOL WITH WHITE WALLS!
