    New rims!!!

    I just got some 20x8 and 20x10 Boss 338 wheels today. They are wrapped in 275/30/20 in the rear and 245/30/20 in the front, I would have gone wider but it was a really good deal. I still have one wheel to put on, for some reason the last lugnut won't come off, it broke my torque wrench. Anyone have any ideas of how to get it off? Here's some pics, sorry for the quality hopefully I can get some better ones tomorrow.









    Now I need bigger rotors they look tiny. And definitely need to paint my calipers now.

    Spray some WD-40 on it and use a large pole as a cheater bar with one of those ratchets that don't have the ratchety movement, like no right or left movement, I forgot what the eff they are called and I'll be dammned it it doesn't come off or break off

    Ok cool I got it. Thanks for the tip, I ended up using a tire iron.

    I have red fuel rails not black, I want black ones though. I am either going.to paint the calipers black with lime green accents or lime green with black accents.

    Paint the pads lime green and the caliper black, that would look good with the rest of your car where are the pics outside of the garage!?

    I would if my car were running at the moment. It won't stay started due to my new throttle body that needs the tps voltage adjusted. I am hoping that's the only problem. I will probably do that theme.
