    I bought the wheels off of a wheel shop in Clovis, Ca. I am running Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP, 285/35/19 for the rear and 245/40/18 for the front. So far I LOVE THESE TIRES, I LOVE THESE WHEELS, the ride looks and feels so much better, also these wheels are half the weight of dem god damn rims! To fit em on though I had to pull out the BFH and put on a 1/4 spacer on the rears (19x10).
    Sadly the tires came in late so all the pictures are darker~ and I forgot to clean the wheels, so i'll post new pics now and then tomorrow I will take better ones.




    Tomorrow I will clean her up and get her all purtied up for photos that'll be alot better

    If I believed in hell, I would believe that there were a special place within it for the kind of sick monster that it takes to put spinners on a T/A.

    Definite improvement. Kudos.

    Man you're going to give me nightmares.

    I live in a small town. Everybody here has seen my car and I get alot of the "blank" "why not me" stares, pointing fingers and excessive female attention. That's a given for the type of cars we drive. But here's the kicker, I swear, after I started rumbling through the ghetto side (cutting through it) with my T-Tops off at least 2 firebirds have popped up over there with huge chrome rims, glue-on side portholes and chrome fender accents. I want to vomit.

    The paint on your car is sick and it goes good with those black wheels. Nice, aggressive shade of red.

    May not be the preference of others, but I love black wheels and I'm shopping to get myself a set. Black metal blends well with black rubber...just looks right.

    Well, I had finals today and the weather decided to rain. So not very many good pics, decided while I was hungry and saw the car out the window and decided it was a good pic opportunity

    Sits kind of high, I plan to drop it a little bit soon, just need to replace my catalytic converters first...
    New picture should be hopefully later today seeing that it is 1am and hopefully no rain. Also going to use an HD camera, not my cell phone...

    I know it's personal preference and all, and the car looks much better than it did before... but imo that color deserves chrome

    Originally I was going to buy the Black C6 Z06 19x10/18x18.5 that had a minor lip, and they recommended 285 for the rear so I assumed that what would fit best, what would of been the widest? Also I read the review on the run flats I got and they were all good, but they only had 4 sizes... Which were specifically C5/C6 Rear/Front sizes... How wide could I of fit?

    Surprisingly its much easier then chrome, to make chrome actually look good always gotta polish, I learned that from the Harley... Too Much Shiny to polish, with these I spray a lil detailing spray and wipe

    I am to young for chrome is one excuse i came up with, i found that orange and chrome together was the natural stereotype, but I enjoy dark colors more then shiny. And my friend when i borrowed his wheels they were black and i really liked them.

    PS. I just learned how to multi quote lol
