    new wheels

    Stopped at the gas station and noticed the nails in sidewall.


    Time for new tires. Got a good deal on some replicas. Tho a bit heavy, look pretty sharp.




    As soon as it stops raining i can pull it out so the suspension settles. Sitting wicked high atm.

    Same. Was saving up for something else, but due to circumstances i ended up ordering these. The spokes are a little wider than oe, but I'll have to wait to get her out before deciding if it's acceptable

    I was surprised to at the bottom line. I Believe the wheel difference was 5lb on paper, so that means these tires were an additional 7lb from the stock 275/40/18 size.

    I went around the block while there was a break in weather. New tires grip great. Is a shame i haven't seen any splash guards that i like. May invest in some clear 3m to protect rear.
