Wheel rims

Hi guys, just a quick observation about wheel rims: Firstly I apologise if I am preaching to the converted! I like the old split rims, they look good and are original, however I just changed to tubeless tyres on steel rims and it feels like I'm driving a new bus! The steering is lighter, the bus handles better and I can cruise at 75 KMPH on the Motorway, with no wobble or shakes!! If any on else is considering changing over, I highly recommend it, you won't regret it!!

My bus number (if any): RML 2353, MB 306
