I just took the new keys to James. So he just came and got the wheels and took them home. I'll get them on tonight.

Nope. Nitto NT05s. I don't think they are classified as DRs but one step down due to the more solid sidewall???

Not 100% sure on that though.

Very nice. And they can be rebuilt or the width can be changed because they are 3 piece.

Fortunately for you they don't have a square rim option.

NO square rims for sure.

Still have a bit of a hooking problem.

So here are the pics tonight. Best I can do in my garage lights.

Wasn't that impressed with how the tires grabbed at all. Seemed less grippy than the others but I think it's because they had only about 75 yards on them when I went around the first turn.

Didn't get a chance to romp much. I'll know tomorrow.

Bro,

Three things... Those tires got a lot of slick'em on them... I'll suppose you did that after you got home...

Those wheels and tires look SIC... and that's good.

and new tires are quite slippery... Take it easy for the first 50 miles or so... or find a dark lonely quiet strip of asphalt and smoke the hell out of em... then... you'll be in the premium area of the tread....and have many many happy miles of decent traction... Them ponies you sporting gonna spin the skins...

lookin good

2 things...

1. give them a hundred miles or so to get the outer layer of rubber off.

2. DO NOT put tireshine on the treads. it'll be like trying to get traction on wet grass with a bucket of ky jelly poured on it.

Ok. I might have gotten a little tire shine on the tread.

I figured I'd need to get the top layer of new rubber off. I think I did that this morning.

Traffic heavy this am so didn't get a chance to really test it. Just smoked em' in WinDixie parking lot.

Here's a couple pics from the morning. Kinda busy today. Got a consultation this morning and leaving early to get my car aligned and then take Bonnies car home to change the diff fluid.

Thanks for the business Randy! Wheels look great.

Corvette factory wheels look like crap though. (Hi Bonnie!)
