    That's pretty good for a month. I would have thought a rim would have folded like a taco by now going over a bump.

    The car looks nice. i hope it doesnt rub.. ?
    also i think the rims are "Neeper N-5's", not Niche.
    btw i might have to copy you on the rim choice

    Looks good. How much do the new wheels+ tyres weigh? I note most of the people bagging the cool wheels don't even drive a GTO.

    I hit a monster of a pot hole today....I had to pull over to check it out......no bend, no nick, nothing. I am impressed. I guess when people knock me on adding weight. Well weight just paid off. Now seriously i suck. Got add some more hp.

    Just my old ass opinion and no disrespect but just not a big fan of that style.
    If they only made some 17" Crager SS mags- that would be my shite.

    I think the 18's that come with the car are about as large as I'd go.

    What did you do with the factory wheels? I have one that hit a curb, got a little scratch that I'd like to replace.

    they look pretty clean... in austrailia they've been running 20's for a while on manaros and vx's. i thought it would look odd, but the car seems to swallow them up. if you did not say they were 20s i would have thought 19s at the largest.

    Still got my factory 18's for the Chicago Winter. Might have to stop as a everyday runner (salt and snow), but will still ride (when streets are clear).

    I dont think it looks bad at all. I was looking to go 20's but I decited to go 19's thought it might have been a rough ride. Looks good tho

    I'm glad you like them. It looks unique and different and I can see how some would like it. Not my personal taste, but you're driving it.

    Just curious, here. What do you mean by "ole timer"? About how old?

    Hmmm... Interesting concept. Different wheels for the winter / snow / salt, etc. I never thought of that, though my dad used to put snow tires on the old Dodge Dart.

    I'm with you though. I grew up in NYC and just hate that stuff all around, not just on my car. I took a little more drastic action, though... just moved to central Florida.

    Sometimes as hot at where... <--- this guy lives. But a/c everywhere, I work indoors and 10 months a year, it's real nice.
