Wheel-posts revisited: a rim roundup recap. Really.

No surprises here.

As with my first post of 2016 - for the sake of neatness and setting a trend - let's do another wheel-post roundup (!!). 
You see, thanks to blast-from-the-past that is the Blogger format; there's no hashtags, no tags.. so a roundup is useful to bring similar content together. Something that's then additionally handy when I use such brilliantly relevant titles as "The Maxim Racing mystery hour" and "Super Street: Taking the right at Awesome Avenue." Ohh, that confusion. 
In the case of wheels, here.. it's content many people (or Google crawlers.. I don't know..) seem to fancy in particular; so I'm sure as hell going to do my best to make that easier to find. 

So. Let's go. All the wheel-in-detail photosets from 2016:

Heh... quiet year..



The previous one of these was actually everything from the 2012 start of the blog to that point.. and every bit of 2016's wheel content was previewed in that post. How? Because I didn't buy a single damn wheel in 2016. Not one. First time in years. I'd LONG ran out of space, and with the falling Australian dollar and rise in popularity of vintage wheels, I'd been priced out. 

Regardless, seems as though there's still plenty more in that above post that I'm yet to crack out, blow the dust off, and snap a bunch of photos of. Let's make 2017 that year. Get 'em done...
