are they oversized like everybody elses ?
maybe panther are coming out with new rims and somebody at tower knows about but needs to get rid of these ?

who knows ? i didnt say there were anything wrong with the rims guys , just that they are probably old or possibly overstocked items . or possibly what i mentioned in last paragraph

the one thing i did have to do though with the pather rims is trim the foam from the aka tires cause the bead wont go on there right so they might be bigger than most rims maybe
