    Those are the wheels, that I want. I wish that the cast wheels were available in gold instead of gunmetal. But I'll probably still get them anyway.

    Matthew:
    Great looking WS6 in white with the TTll's
    Many thanks to everyone who responded. Between Damian, Jeff, Leon and Matthew, I can say the TTll's are my choice. One thing I noticed is the TTll's look better to me with a 1.5-2.0 drop. I installed my Strano's and Bilsteins today and the 1.5 drop makes a world of difference even with the stock WS6 polished wheels. This forum has been very helpful to me for making the right decisions on my mods.

    Sam Strano has Bilsteins modified to work with his springs. I went with this combo after learning about him through this forum. From what I am told, the only better combo would be Koni's with the Strano springs but that was way over my budget. My Bilsteins are non adjustable and that's good for me because I want a great handling street car only. No autocross etc. They claim about a 1.5" drop, but it looks more closer to 2.0" to me. I should have taken before and after height measurements.

    Strano no longer revalves the Bilstein shocks(hasn't for a few years). But you're right that they are reccomended second only to Konis.

    Springs
    1. Strano Springs
    2. Eibach LT1 Pro-Kit
    3. Hotchkis

    Shocks
    1. Koni (Single Adjustable 4/4)
    2. Bilstein
    3. KYB
    4. Tokico

    @SMWSl6TA. Those wheels look nice. Question for you on the Snowflakes. Do the wheel centers on those pop off as bad as the originals used to? And how hard/expensive are the wheel centers for those??

    Wheels cost me $750 (17x9)
    Center caps and Badges cost $ 130 for a set of 4 plus the Firebird Logo.

    They seem to be staying on with no issues, I used an epoxy to glue the badges on the caps.

    Thanks as well. That's one of the biggest reasons I haven't switched the wheels up to run wider tires. Unfortunately, finding them now-a-days is like finding a needle in a haystack. I wish I would have bought a couple back in the day as spares, just in case.

    Yes, plus shipping I think? I paid that about a year ago. If you do get them, I recommend Nitto NT555's I have 245/45/17R on the front and 275/45/17R on the rear. My next set for the rear will be 295 or 305/45/17's to give it a more beefer look on the rear. The front measurement is perfect. Nice grip and traction for the street and in the rain, while decent at the track. Better then most but not as good as DR or slicks. This will be after I get my rear done I'll be using Nitto DR05's for the rear. It will mean having to get another set of wheels for the back at lease. It rains way to much here to drive on DR.


    I just saw that you are in MD, those Nittos might be an issue because they are rated as a summer tire.
