    i got mine the other day, but like i said, theyre at my moms, i was supposed to go mount them this morning but my alarm failed me. on one rim there is a tiny little imperfection in the paint, just one little spot, like 1mm wide, and 3mm long and a little ding on the lip.

    The ding is big enough to notice, but i dont think it will be once the rims are on it, it looks like some took a 3/16ths drill bit and laid it down sideways on the lip, and went in about a 1/16 of an inch. its noticeable, but i dont think its bad enough to consider shipping it back.

    the rims were packaged well, its obviously something that happened during manufacturing, the rims have a sheet of foam rubber over the face, then a big plastic ring around the lips, all wrapped in a plastic bag, and thats inside a think cardboard box.

    I'd probably order from them again. And ill get pics up as soon as i can

    Well ive never inserted images, so im gonna do all the typing first, then try to put them at the bottom.

    First of all, the rims were a reasonable price, and shipped pretty quick, i think it took about a week to get from florida to texas, the one rim had a ding in the lip, which i have a picture of. They were packaged well and there was no damage to the stuff protecting the rim, so im assuming it happened during manufacturing, and slipped through inspection.

    This is where it gets fun, the front wheels went on like a piece of cake, but the back ones took about 4 hours, no kidding. The little round thing on your rotor, wear the bearings are, was a hair too big on the back, like, 1/32 of an inch, but the rim had a shitload of paint on the inside of that hole. so i ground down the paint, and into the metal a little bit, put the rim back up and started torqueing down the lugs, hoping that would push the rim up flush, it was working but then i sheared of a stud, and stripped 3 others, so i replaced those, ground the rim so more, then repeated.

    the rim is on so tightly that im pretty sure i could take off the lugs and the rim would stay perfectly in place. So overall, im not saying to not buy from these people, but dont expect the swap to be a piece of cake, now that i got them on im very happy, along with my new hankook 235/50/17's the car handles well and looks very nice. my old tires had no traction, i got sideways all the time, these stick like glue.

    enough yacking, heres some pics, hopefully

    heres the old rims, which im hoping to sell if anyones interested.



    Heres the same shot, with the new rims.



    Heres an upclose shot of the rear wheel



    Heres a tread shot



    rear view, i dont feel like editing out my plate, whatever. and yeah, back ends a little dirty, i washed, polished, and waxed it after this photo.



    And finally, a shot of the ding, we also chipped the paint in a few little spots during mounting, but hey, its gonna happen sooner or later.

    Looks like a nice upgrade, sorry about the chip and fitment issues.
    I know about OE wheel in Florida. They're selling alot of replica
    wheels for F-bodys these days.

    I have to wonder why you didn't go with some 275 x 40 x 17s.

    Its because my dad bought them for me as christmas present, i told him i needed between 245 and 285 to fit my rims, since theyre 9.5 inches wide, which they actually measured about 10.25. I said i was wanting 255 or 265, i was kind of worried over that might rub. but when he showed up christmas day with 235's, i didnt pay for them, and i hadnt talked to him in over a year, so i wasnt gonna bitch.

    I talked to him the day he was out shopping, and tire sizes are limited in a 17 inch, and he doesnt leave the woods often, so he was stressing out bad, and some guy at the tire place said 235's were popular on camaro's, but im pretty sure he was thinking about the stock 8.5 inch rims.

    But i think they look damn good, im definately not dissatisfied with them, wider would have been better, but hey.
