Under the picture is written "Image may not be application specific." So they're covered.

Sellers like this ought to be banned from Ebuy.

There's been threads about this spare tire... it's a collapsing spare from some porsche fitted onto a base front rim.

The reclining seat is rather intersting though! Anybody used it before?
