I'm currently looking for new wheels. But it's mainly saving for new wheels.
Well that's good minus the loading it with air all the time. What a pain in the ass, I just loaded my rear left with air. I have a slow leak in my p zero (errr) I think after all the money you spent, I would just get that one wheel repaired so atleast you can say your wheels work apart from all the BS from the manufacturer.
And nice PQ, you going for forgestars?

Forgelines or maybe Lexani or maybe BonSpeed or maybe 10 other companies.

I just googled savini wheels and believe it or not the only complaints I've seen were from this forum. I've read many good reviews. Go figure. On PQ's experiences alone I would never purchase them.

Yup mentioned that earlier. I figure we are the dumb ones for thinking Savini would perform. Most everyone else knows they are for looks.

OOOOOOH I gotcha, So what your saying is rich ball players and movie stars like them for looks and since they are riding around in limos all day and just looking at there rides they give them a good review. Makes sense.

And to think that we are all crazy for thinking that we should be able to use our cars after installing a set of custom wheels. That's a concept that Savini must not grasp.

I know I get looks when I tell people that I drive my car. Though it must be hard driving her with those square wheels PQ.

no no no, I just have regular circular wheels. I was just poking fun at Savini. I have tried to get a set of Savinis though, but I refuse to pay money for them. And not many shops are up for giving away a set of savini wheels.

I thought Forgeline was the only company that made wheels for the 5th Gen

Put those collectable factory wheels in storage and preserve them for posterity. Forgeline can now fit 19x11s at all four corners. Cover them with 305/30/19/XL RE-11s
