New to post here, but have been "lurking". The ideas and parts that are passed around here are fantastic. Original owner of an 06 Imp SS, no problems "yet". I will, however, make sarcastic remarks from time-to-time. That's all I got

I'll try to upload some pics. I have no clue how to do that, so I'll dig around. I've got very basic mods - K&N CAI, 2.5" cat-back exhaust to flowmaster 40 series. Changed out wheels to American Racing 328's in black chrome with 255/45r18 gdy supercars (car is black, no tint yet), took all chrome off front end and debaged the rear bowtie. Weather in central texas has not been forgiving for pictures so I took a couple, I'll try to post them. nope - something about a security token? File to large?

Thanks for the compliments on the wheels. I got a smokin deal on them, because i work for Discount Tire. I need to get this thing tuned also. I found a couple of places around here that would do it (American Racing Tech in Buda Tx, Henderson Perfomance in New Braunfels). I WANT to do the headers, not sure if I can still get on the list or do the install myself? Thanks for helpin out with all of my questions.

American Racing 328's in black chrome

Those rim are nice. I was thinking of getting my GXP rim powder coated black chrome, but those rims may be the way to go. Are they AR or Boss I cant find any info on ARís web site.

The wheels are AR boss wheels. I'm not sure if they are manufactoring
that style still or not. I wanted to do something different that's why I went black chrome. I saw wheel pros makes the rockstar wheels for cars now - unsure about bolt pattern or offset. 1CL3ANSUP3RSPORT what color did you go with?

Welcome! Better late then never! I like the wheels! Im looking right now at wheels to throw some M/T's on....im really thinking im going to go 15x8, 5x115-40mm on a wheel....throw some meat up front like a 26-30" slick. On the GXP(up front) the calipers clear at 40mm im told and the rotors are 12.7" If thats wrong chime me....but again, lil off track there...Welcome again!!

Correct, 40mm offset in front and 12.7" rotors, and they're freaking heavy.

Now JP, are you sure its 40mm not 4.0mm....cause looking at SJM 15x7.5-8" wheels to throw those M/T's on and they say the wheels they have; when looking for the 5x115 pattern. 15x7.5-8" with a back space of 4.0-5.5" which would convert to 40mm-55mm? is that how they do it when converting? As this is a first for me to know what to look for....
This is what they have on their site as the numbers I was assuming I needed:

http://www.sjmmanufacturing.com/anodized_wheels.html

15 x 7.5/8 3.5" thru 5.5"

Im thinkng that 3.5" thru 5.5" is 35mm-55mm??

I got the info from here (http://www.clubgp.com/newforum/tm.asp?m=4813936&appid=&p=&mpage=1&key=offset&language=single&tmode=&smode=&s=#4813936)

And if by 4.0 they mean 4.0cm then yes, but if it's 4.0" that's inches which is about 102mm...
