New Wheels and Exhaust

Last weekend I decided to change the look of the car slightly. Since I put springs on the car I didn't like the stance of the car with it's current wheels and since I added the Off-Road Xpipe I wasn't happy with the sound either. Last weekend I ordered a new Magnaflow axle back from Christy (Ponygrrl) at Lethal Performance and new wheels and tires. I am picky when it comes to wheels and preffer OEM wheels. I decided to go with black GT500's with GoodYear Eagle F1's. I got the wheels from Buyfordracing.com and the tires are from Tirerack. The pics are crappy because it was the first time using it. This is the happiest I have been with the car's stance and the pics do not do it justice. The car also sounds the best it ever has.

You car looks great!!!!

Robert, I think you've mistaken my car with this one.

Joe

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

I never liked the stock GT spoiler. To me the car should of came with the GT500 spoiler in the first place. I went with a new OEM spoiler and had it painted.

I think the black wheels work well with the red. I just sold my stock wheels last week. If I ever go back to 18's I'd get those black wheels as well since they clear the big brake kit.
