Those 305 Pirelli's are serious tires.

That's a pretty nice license plate. How'd you get the DMV to give you more than 7 letters? kick ass wheels though

Thank you to all!! I had quite the adventure getting my wheels. First the wheels themselves were on back order for months. So I Bought my tires and lug nuts while I was waiting. When the wheels came in I discovered that the lug nuts I ordered were too large in diameter to allow the wrench to fit into the holes in the wheels. So I ordered new small spline Gorilla nuts. Yep,,,, you guessed it,,,they were on back order. More waiting and they finally came in. Tore open the box to discover they had forgotten to include the socket for the lugs! Well it finally got here and I am happy with it all now.

I think my next step will be powder coat for the calipers and Racing Brake two piece rotors and some pedders brake lines.

Yes, in time I want to lower it a touch and firm up the factory bushings.

I forget the exact weights. Nine Ball told me once but all I can remember is it is very close to the TSW Nurburgrings. I went back and forth between the F-14's and the Nurburgrings several times before making my mind up.

Good long test drive today and everything feels great.

This is from Nine Ball's thread
Forgestar F14s
Wheel Sizes/Weights:
18x8.5 = 19.5
18x10 = 21 lbs
18x11 = 21.5 lbs
20x9 = 26.5 lbs
20x11 = 28 lbs
22x9 = 29.5 lbs
22x10.5 = 30.0 lbs

Whew! Glad to see those finally on your car! Those backorders were brutal, and you fell right into the middle of them - but were determined to get exactly the widths you wanted. They came out very nice Brian, and I appreciate your business.

Thanks,
Tony

Thank you Tony! You were great. I knew up front that being super picky was going to cost me time, but I love the end results. Wait till I get my powdercoated calipers and slotted disks! She will look too sexy!

Continuing the trend of not being able to find an F14 application I don't like.

Looks great!
