How have I never seen these  :shock:
I think they're cool. If only they were wider.

i think it would be a good fund raiser if we got some and painted them like Pudsey bear.

i had some on my old gtt. i powdercoated the teddy black and the rim silver.
there is a huge flaw with them.... the centre piece is plastic. if you get them painted, the paint is slightly thicker than usual OE. when braking your wheels get slightly warmer - the metal and plastic stick together through expansion - you cannot get the wheel off.

how do i know this....  :roll:
