The lip is ******' ****. The color and the whole wheel pop with the spokes set back like that and the 9s really fill out the fenders nicely. I grabbed these tires for a song, $144 shipped for 4 of them with 2/32nds left, so they will get me 2-3 track days while I save up for some more NT-01s.

They did have this funky chunky rubber buildup on the two rears, like they had been driven through the marbles, so I had to get rid of it.

My fenders are rolled, no pulling. 11.7" front, 12.2" rear. I will grab a rear shot today.

I have 15x8 for the street, but this makes me want to get the 9's for the track and run hoosiers...but that's a lot of money and won't last as long.

Nobody likes your ugly, heavy, weak ***, puny wheels....

Drool.

Pretty sure that's not a C5 kotomile. But "spread the wealth" is hilarious.

Yeah yeah, whatever.... I lose. I was looking at the reflection in the mirror of the C5... Obviously.

Looks good sav. What's with that little notch in the center of the rear bumper? And is that a 3" pipe out the back?

3" pipe out the back. The notch was for an aborted trailer hitch project. I need to replace the rear bumper skin.

I hear people do that with a base ball bat or etc. How did you do it? And did you have to touch the paint up?
