like Irv said! I bet we broke 8-10 of them before giving up. Thankfully we
caught every one of them before it was totally broken, but a couple had split
over 50% of the way around when we saw them, egads.
If you only raced in the rain, they'd probably be just fine, but the temptation
would be pretty strong to use them otherwise eventually. TR6 wheels are 6 inch
as I recall.
