Congrats on your new ride

It looks awesome, love black and the whole car just looks fabulous. Best of luck with it. Now get off your butt and start the mods.LOL

I know what you mean about giving up the 2LT. I just did as well. My wife thinks I'm nuts when I tell her that I worry about the cars feelings.

Are we nuts or what?


She'll find a good home

Jim

Well its obvious your car doesn't like your rims. I'd say leave them off and I'm sure you'll notice your car loving you back.

Glad you weren't hurt in your incident and hope you don't run into any issues with fixing her back up.

Ha felt the same way, even hugged my car before I drove off. Think the salesman thought I was nuts

quick update...

My car is back sitting on its new rims and rubber. All said and done, the damage totaled 14,000. I added some new fatter meats to the repairs so I only had to purchase 2 new shoes.

285/35ZR20 Supercar F1's on the front and 305/35ZR20's for the rear

With any luck, I should have my 3 day old Camaro in my garage tonight!

So you've had the car 3 days total, in that 3 days you bought it, wrecked it, did 14k worth of damage, and it's back to perfect condition?

Man, it's been an exciting 3 days :p

Can't really tell you TBH. The dealer paid out my old 2LT and then discounted my new 2SS.
