Alberta Wheel Repair on Goddard Avenue. That's the place to go. Unless you want them power coated, then Top Gun Coatings is the way to go.

Go snow tires!
I have driven both the 2LT and the 2SS in the winter and they ARE very planted cars. Good snow tires and these things are awesome!

Initially, I was really worried, because the snow tires seemed really greasy. Then I realized that they weren't broken in yet... I've never heard of breaking in tires. Now they're fine. I can take on ramps with confidence.

Yep, I went and got a quote from alberta wheel repair over the summer. They suggested I bring in the rims while it's parked. My problem is I don't have a 2nd set of rims, so I not sure how I'm going to get the rims to them...

Bought car with 50 kms, June 28 2012, just flipped 34,000 kms this week. Averaged 24,000 for the year.

I have only seen one other Camaro on the road since the snow showed up, a silver one with the same winter tire set up as mine. Gonna get greasy again this weekend....

Im having a tough time leaving my car parked. I drive to work again today. With the blizzard coming tomorrow, this was probably the last day for sure!
