Anyone know of a retailer that stocks them?

There's a couple on evilbay at the mo but they'll be sold before I need wheels and, pound to a pinch of s**t, there will be an ebay drought of them when I'm ready :roll:

wouldve thought them to genereally be steel?

or do mags ensue they are magnesium?
if the former wouldve been easy to paint i guess

plastics could be vinyl dyed, probably
:?

Dyed r/c truck wheels before.. not sure about the logistics of a 26" wheel though.. :?

Don't know about materials.. I think some are magnesium..

Google is being most unhelpful in finding someone that retails them :roll:
