    Looks like American Mag Torque Thrusts on your little buggy?

    One of my favorites for sure, only the guys with the big bucks had those when I was a wee lass . . .

    I looked at them for my build but the 15" wide ones were like almost $800 a pop, so I'll be going with the Weld Prostars

    I've had them for awhile; seems like I paid just a little over $700 for all four (15 x 10 rear; 14 x 6 front).

    Welcome from the land of ice,snow and cold. Wisconsin. We do have some nice summers. Last year we had a full four days of it. LOL If you live here you have to pack all your driving fun into six months of maybe good weather.

    Thanks rubicon,

    So I have my 10 posts, but no upload pics button.

    Is that something that comes with having a paid membership or something like that?

    Otherwise, where do you guys recommend, or have your picture hosting?

    My "upload a file" is right next to the "post reply" button. You don't need a paid membership to post pictures.

    Maybe I didn't phrase the question well.

    I don't have an "upload file" button next to my "post reply" button, or anywhere else.
    The add image icon in the icon group above the reply text box only allows only an URL.

    I don't see any option anywhere to upload a pic directly.

    That's what made me wonder if being a supporting member, or some type of paid membership, is what gives you the "upload file" button.

    If that's not the key to having direct upload status, where is a good place to host pictures?

    None of the other forums that I'm on require that I have my pics hosted, so I'm not familiar with doing that.

    Thanks in advance,

    Darlene

    Looks like making a donation/becoming a supporting member is the key to having that "upload a file" button show up.

    Also seems that max file size is about 1MB

    Also have an edit post capability now as well. . . .

    Sometimes I'm just not the most absorbent tampon in the box.

    I don't think donations has anything to do with it, but . . . you seem to have found a way post pics. Nice collection of vehicles!
    Also, no hosting site is necessary; all my pics come from my computer files.:)

    The BBC is coming from the jacked up silver truck.

    All I can say is that I donated $20 via paypal, then refreshed this thread and the "upload file" button and an "edit" icon at the lower left of the post showed up like magic.

    Maybe a coincidence, who knows

    Never had any tampon experience! Maybe donating is the key. I don't remember if I donated first or posted a picture first. Been a member for a while. Whatever you did, you got it to work.
    So you're good to go.

    Welcome from Michigan, Island Girl. Please excuse my ignorance. Your recent comment "I'm looking at the big, 33" Mickey Thompson radials in the rear on 15" wide Weld Prostars, (since there's no more Centerlines)." got my attention. This part did it "(since there's no more Centerlines)". My T-Bucket has Centerlines on it and to say that doing business with them was difficult isn't even close. I'm 80+ years old so I don't think building a new T-Bucket is a good idea. I bought one about 80% finished from a friend who got it in a "package" type purchase and really didn't want it. The car had Centerline wheels on the front and rusty junk on the rear. I put new Centerlines on the rear. Mine was not a strange "special" order. I did insist on confirmation in writing. Confirmation took about 6 weeks and it showed their error. They had called out the wrong BC. I would not have been able to use the wheels. It took nearly 10 months to get the wheels in my hands. They were correct, as ordered.

    You can probably understand my interest in your comment "(since there's no more Centerlines)". Has the Centerline Company gone out of business? I don't think I'm going to need more wheels however............

    Thanks,
    Roger (Old Guy)

    Yes,

    Centerline as we know it, went out of business about April or May of last year.

    Checking Summit or Jegs will find almost all stocks are sold out and the few remaining bits on clearance.

    If you pull up centerline dot com, you'll see it's a whole new outfit that must have bought the name, as there's none of the usual Centerline style wheels.

    Apparently a lot of people had a lot of issues getting orders filled during the months, maybe a year, leading up to the closure.

    I bought my Centerline wheels a few years ago. About a year and a half ago, I had new tires put on the front wheels. I supplied the tire company with all the information from Centerline describing the care necessary when mounting a tire on a Centerline wheel. The tire company bent one of the wheels. They admitted the damage and said they would "make it right". They were not able to find anyone who could straighten the wheel. They bought a new wheel from Centerline for $265. I placed the order with Centerline. It was a challenge, but I did finally get a new wheel. I looked it up. It was shipped to me late November, 2016. I consider myself very lucky......a few months later and I would probably still be waiting for a new wheel.
    Thanks for the response,
    Roger
