They look so nice, I don't wanna drive on them. Maybe I will keep them as decoration for the garage.

I want to see how long they last lol. The pilots I had on my motor cycle didn't last long. Pilots are really sticky so below with traction.

I want to know if you will notice a difference between the 20's and 22's acceleration wise.

New wheels are in...

They are much lighter than the pictures from Forgestar though. They basically look gunmetal, but I am ok with it, I still like them.

Ok. I'd rather sell my TSWs to you. That way I don't have to deal with shipping. If you want to pay half at first and half a little later you can.

Well I am a designer, so I guess creativity runs through my veins haha

Dude, I bought some plasti dip just so I can do these same exact mods. I was also thinking about plasti dipping the area where the headlights are like where you have the vinyl kit.

I'm also planning on blacking out the camaro logos and the middle section of the rear view mirrors so it would look like a thick, black stripe right in the middle of the white. Also thinking about doing it on the outer edges of the spoiler and on the shark fin antenna.

I can't wait to play with this stuff. I just haven't had the time yet. I'm gonna have to post a build thread like this too to watch my progress.

By the way, I absolutely love your ride. I never really liked the IOM color too much but with your mods it has changed my mind. Like a few others have said on this thread, you have picked some very classy, subtle mods that don't go overboard and are basically the same exact type of mods that I have been wanting to do and will be doing eventually.

Thanks for the inspiration lol.

I have plans on that saturday! I was going to put my wheels on that day but I can't now so I just thought I might as well put them on sooner. The next one isn't until August
