    Talking FINALLY, they're here!!!

    It has been a LONG LONG LONG wait (18+ weeks). It was an estimated 6 week turn around, but that definitely wasn't the case. I'm excited that they finally arrived. Can't wait to mount these bad boys!

    I'm going to go with street tires in 315/35/17. I might go with Goodyear GSD3's. I'll be putting some Nitto's on my ZR1's for racing.

    I really like the GSD3's I had on my ZR1 wheels. They hooked up very nicely and rode well.

    Yup, I have them on my ZR1's right now and I've had them for 3 years with a lot of tread life left. I like the looks and how they handle etc.

    I don't believe I can say the same about my CCWs, especially with the chrome plating. I wonder how much difference OP will experience when he swaps the wheels out.

    Yes, they're very light. By the way what tires do you have on the front and rears? How do you like them?

    I doubt I would feel any differences with just a little weight difference.

    The fronts are just Sumitumo htrz3, wasn't crazy about em but i got them at a good price and they do pretty good in the rain. Rears i got Nitto NT05s which do great on dry pavement, rain could be better but for what they are i was impressed. Only thing i don't like is they do run a bit skinny for a 315 but not by much.
    I'll see if i can measure the overall width later
