Yay, tires! (mounted on the car!)

Won't be mounted till Sunday, but my buddy will be mounting and balancing them, as well as an alignment and some camber bolts. Can't wait... not sure who remembers, but my 'stones were powdercoated LAST summer :shock:

Good choice on the 205's. IMO they look better on the car than the stock 195's.

So close... they must mate! lol. They will be mounted and balanced by the weekend, then I'll meet my buddy at his shop and have them thrown on the car as he does the alignment. Can't wait!

Haha ya I remember driving up to Virginia to grab them (have the bent one in the storage room). Had them powdercoated last year, and finally got around to affording tires.

Will get more pictures later on in the week. I know it's a love/hate, but I just wanted a crazy color.

Thanks guys. I've never really gotten a whole lot of compliments on the car as a whole, but I love having these wheels on now. Just gotta work on getting a decent exhaust set up now because I'm running no muffler :lol:

Love the wheels!!! I want to pc some Trunk wheels, and i think this is the perfect color!

As for exhaust, you should run a fat can and call it a day ;)
