I can get one local for 549 plus tax. So I ordered one from Tire Rack for 385 including shipping. Coming from Shreveport so no tax and it will be here Tuesday.
This is why I didn't go with the set-up I originally planned. The tires are so damn expensive.

Hell the local price you got was more than the RIM cost. LOL

Luckily you will be back to normal (well as normal as you can be...) by Tuesday. Gotta love Tire Rack.
Yeah did some checking around today and no one has these in stock in a city this size. The Tire Rack price was the best anyway. Discount came close, but still not in stock.

Hmmmm Mr ZL1 man... I think you need to be on the track tonight too.

We just lucked out to have one SS wheel available. I'd hate to be the poor ZL1 guy that ends up on YouTube on all the Mustang forums

Look what I got from Oshawa!!!!

Got a nice surprise in my mail box a few days ago.

Huge thanks to Mike Judge for this one. I can't believe he keeps finding ways to show customers how much the folks in Oshawa appreciate them. Of course it goes both ways as well. If they ever have another open house I hope to go thank some of them personnally for the permagrin I've had the last 3 years.

Thanks again Mike... and Scott too. Don't know how that signature made its way there but I'll find out from him at the fest. Really bummed that Mike will not be at the fest this year. GM really needs to put him on a plane and get him there...
