Default New Wheels on the Monster!

Well, my new wheels came in today... I am pretty pleased. I really am going to miss my 16 inch SSRs however. These are 15s and weigh 10 pounds too though and look pretty decent. Here are some pics! (Sorry the quality isnt all that good on the pics)

The resolution on the pics is fine, but DAMN, the angles! Dude, just take a normal picture with the camera level. Even glamour shots in mags don't have cars practically inverted. Stand back across the room so we can get a good look at them and the whole car. And what color do they call those, they're not black or grey... some kind of pewter?

I love the tires, where'd you get them and what'd you pay?
What are you going to use them for? What kind of braking action do they have? What's the difference in tread pattern between the fronts and rears. I'm curious to see if your Wilwoods are going to overpower them if you're driving it on the street.

I got the tires from tire rack. They are a Drag Radial with a 0 treadwear rating. I drag race the car only with occasional street fun. The front tires are just street tires (BFG G-Force KDW2s). The rotors are definitely well used .

You are a beautiful and a sexy minx of mystery. I would like to take you for a nice steak dinner and then lay you down by the fire to explore your innermost secrets.

Treadwear is a joke because every company can make their treadwear based on their own tests
