Very nice DJ. That is such a great looking wheel for the 4th gen Camaro.

Lol Mac.. my car is silver now since I wrecked the black one.. I started over with this new rolling chassis and swapped everything in. The new engine is in and was in the black car when I wrecked from a deer. I should have this car completely done in a week or 2 max. The intake is just a custom one no boost here too much compression and no E85.. also broke now lol

I got mine done on at a place that didnt have one. They looked as perfect as when I took them out of the box. The owner made it clear to his guys though to be careful, worked out flawlessly.

Same here bro.. I went all over the city trying to find a place. The only place that did have the touchless machine refused my business for some reason.. Maybe cuz I told them I had over $5000 in wheels/tires to mount lol... But anyways I ended up going to just a regular ole' place but that had plastic guards on all the parts that touch the wheels etc and it worked out great. $125 is what I paid.

I called a few places close to me that I have done with business in the past. None of them had them and all of them wanted me to drop the wheels/tires off and theyll get to them when they get to them.. I ended up calling this guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdFIrWr77jI

His guys did a great job. Walked right in and was out in 20 minutes. Charged me $80 and my 5+ month wait is over.

My rear tires came in today and I wasted no time getting them mounted. I procrastinate a lot so I decided to change my ways today. LOL! The rears are 315/35/17 NT05 and the fronts are 275/40/17 GSD3's. Sorry, I didn't have time to whip out the DSLR camera so I used my cell phone. I'm actually surprised it didn't rub at all in the rear so it required to banging or grinding.
