Just when I thought Ginger couldn't get any sexier! New track shoes.
 
Wheels are 17x5/17x10 Weld RTS with M&H 185/55 17 radial fronts and 325/45 17 drag radials.

I knew these wheels would look good, but damn! They look AMAZING on a convertible. The black faces of the wheel and the black top look so good together. I think that makes it look even better than on a coupe.

Got a killer deal on these so now I will put my 18" track set up for sale. Funny thing is my 18" track set up is about 10 lbs LIGHTER than my new 17" Welds. :thumbdown:

These first two are by far my favorite pictures.

What's your 18" track setup?
You have so many sets of wheels I can't keep up.

But I love the look of the RT-S setup. I really like the aggressive look of the meaty sidewall.

18x4 black CTS fronts with M&H 185/50 18 front runners
18x11 Textured black Forgestar F14 with 315/30 18 Hoosier drag radials

The fronts have been driven to the track twice and the drag radials have only two passes on them.

I honestly didn't want 28" rears but that's what they came with.

So the Welds r fitting now without problems? I thought the rears were hitting the lower control arms or hittting something?

If you are lowered they rub the lower control arms. Took me about 2 minutes to clearance the control arms. Some people don't feel comfortable grinding the arms, some people buy the BMR arms made to fit. I have been modding Camaros for almost 15 years and am used to making parts fit, the grinding required is nothing to worry about.

The ones in my sig were 18x8.5/18x11, I sold those a few months ago. Now I have the same wheels except 18x10 all the way around.

Man, ginger puts new shoes on and bam she looks even better. Nice job.

The back wheels and tires look perfect!! The front is ok, not much you can do there when trying to put 17's where 20's are suppose to be. Looks good though, congrats!
