    Not blue no more.

    Old wheels



    New wheels







    Straight from germany for only $250 bucks on craigslist from a guy out in Fort Carson. I will need new tires and an alignment badly but overall very happy with the look. I will need new Center caps though. Anyone know a place were I can get some? Those salad shooters have been scrapped.

    Next on the to do list is wrap up on the suspension, and either boost my 3.8 or I'm swapping in an L67. Its possible with rerouting the superchargers intake away from the firewall but I don't know how to do that.

    VfSkulangel The new wheels look so much better. I never could figure out why you had those blue ones on your car. Good move much better!

    I tried doing my car totally opposite of Knight Rider being that it was a Firebird red on black while my car is a Camaro blue on black.

    Those old rims were done. I jumped a couple of curbs like Knight Rider

    They were scrapped with all the hair line cracks in them. On a side note I got a pair of $10 tie rod ends and replaced my old crappy original GM ones and they are a hell of a lot better than spending $50 bucks each through the dealership with crappy quality. you couldn't even grease the original GM ones, I would highly suggest you check yours to be sure it doesn't have those craptastic Tie Rod ends.

    I almost sold out and bought a set of Z06's and I finally came across another set that I knew wasn't going to be common so I grabbed em before someone else did. I might need your help on finding or designing a set of center caps.
