    A new look for the old Bird

    After having a stressfull few years because of our lack luster economy (esp. here in Michigan) I finally find myself in a decently paying Job again.
    So the updates to the Old Formula have been continuing at a rapid pace mostly due to neccessity.
    The Rear End took a dump on me a couple weeks ago and ended up being just a broken gear. So a set of Motive 3.90 replaced the 138K mile 3.42's.
    Also updated to a new set of wheels, AZA Z-02's 18x9.5 with 275/35/18 Nitto Invo's
    Heres some quick pics with the new wheels

    I like the wheels, look good on that color. I though about those but not into silver rims on white car. I wanted some of those Invo's for my 18's after my 2 rear kumho's got worn out but I went with BFG NT's since they gave me a better deal on them and there was $100 rebate at the time and cash was tight since I also need 4 new 22" tires for my Trailblazer. So I had to get 8 tires for under $1800 mounted, balanced, and a new alignment for the truck since the car has free lifetime alignments(needed it because I did my suspension and tires separetly and broke a aftermarket strut mount).
