on the cracked rim i was talking about. one person said the epoxy on it looks like real heavy duty epoxy and to leave it and add a tube or extra protection. can i put a tube in a tire like those? will a tire shop even mount a tire on a rim that has epoxy on the inside or cracked? supposely its a hairline crack from hitting a pothole.
a h or x pipe won't increase loudness much at all, they are designed for smoother flow and combining the left and right banks of true dual exhaust systems. it's quieter than you imagine because your running two mufflers.
as for a tube? I have no clue. I ran tubeless bedlocks with massive plastic inserts for a runflat setup, just like humvees run military wise. the whole setup was military lol.
