Purchased a new pair of shoes for my car today. 20x9.5 wheels and 275's all away around. I hope the new offset allows the 275's to fit up front unlike the ones I tried on stock rear wheels up front. Pictures to follow once the wheels come in.

Bummer today, the day before the big Able Chevrolet Cruise. Went to America's Tire to get my new wheels installed and the had three black ones and one polished! I ordered all four of them in black so I will be rolling on my stock wheels tomorrow. The all black wheels might be a bit too much, thinking I should have gone polished. Will have to see them on the car at a distance.

The new 9.5" front wheels with 275's give me about 3/8 of and inch of clearance on the inside if I'm lucky. The close gap is caused by the PFADT coil overs and their inverted design. The adjustment ring is what's sticks out the most and was rubbing up against my 9" OEM wheels up front. Beware if you have these coil overs, you need to do your homework to make sure that the wheels you purchase will clear the coil overs.

Cool videos of the UFO event Steve. I like the new wheels also! Too bad about the polished one. Possibly go with a polished lip and black wheels to tone down the black?

A little too low, I'm going to raise her at least a half inch front and rear to see if that will be enough.

Great video, I'm around the 14 minute mark. Notice my magic cone trick on my second lap.

Ordered Hankook Z214 R comp tires for my car for Autocross events. The tires I went with are 275/35-18, hope they don't throw off the computer too much. Will post pictures and review after I install them.
