Has anybody had experience with / thoughts on Dayton direct bolt wire wheels? I'm looking at getting them in 15/6 and 15/7, 72 stainless spokes, bead lace (bead lace is what I *think* the development car has in gvickery's photo above, which is perty). http://www.daytonwirewheels.com/pdf/catalog_volu...
