Yeah right it would have been better if they let us park next to each other but next show we'll meet up ahead of time and cruise in together.
Couldn't of said it better That's more important than winning anyday

Congrats on the power tuning and sorry to hear about the wheel! That sucks!






Tough competition! Great pics!
That's sweet Mike thanks but it would be a honor to be able to park next to any of my C5 boys lol

Just dropped the wheel off today to be fixed found a place that was close to me and the price was reasonable, worth a shot. While I had the car on jackstands in the front I'm having my fenders rolled for my new wheels

No word from 360 on my wheels I think they'll just show up one day like magic.
Got pics of said wheels.... ???

I do not because actually this should be the first camaro on these wheels from 360. Its their brand new GT line hence I got some aggressive pricing for promotion and so forth, We'll be having a pro shoot once I get them on.

They did two sets of the wheels I ordered on an R8 and a Z06. Take a look.

Haha I know you want to see them man, trying to see if you like these more than the Nessen's. Nothing as of late my dude car is on jackstands in the garage right now while my wheel is at the repair shop. $190 bucks the guy said he'd straighten out the lip and repaint the lip.

I've been car shopping again my dude I love the wrx but I think I'm gonna be staying at my current job for some time and the traffic is too brutal on a daily basis near NYC for a stick daily.

I'm done with you..., LoL...but I have to agree that WRX is sweet as hell...DO IT DO IT DO IT, Damn it DO IT, Yo my brother from another mother...keep that number for me bro that price to repair a 3 pc wheel is amazing. I'm sorry I'm sticking with your first wheel choice...buuuuuuuuuuuuut if you had to choose another wheel those would do the trick.

Hey man we gotta go to OC car show June 8th and 9th, this is an Nopi (Nopi will be back this year) type event, extreme modding to very wild, I just found out my old car team (nEW iMAGE) has pretty much locked down all categories (Yo Chris no joke these dudes are the real deal) I've seen some of these dudes invest 100,000 in a build and a year later completely change it out (Crazy Right!). Google New Image (Its a new group from when I was with them) also Google that show it's the biggest show on the east coast, even bigger and better than Sema. If you wont to car I can get you and your car in for free, one of my sponsors (Tristate Audio) wants the car under one of their tents, we could rock a tent together man real talk, let me know ASAP.

Hahaha man you know I can't make up my mind ever. So starting the search over again for the right daily. No doubt man the place is called USA Wheels in fairfield NJ, its like 15 minutes from me and directly on my route to work, talk about easy. Turn around was 3-5 days he said so I'll have it back this week if all is well. When I got the wheel off the rest of it looked ok just the lip took a beating.

Yeah man those were sweet wheels but you know you gotta run them with a big lip and that ain't happening on the camaro unless your gonna run a widebody kit.

I'm down for that show my dude 100% Would be a sweet get away for a weekend Ocean City is a nice place. I'll check them out I googled new image and didn't get much but I'll keep looking. That is nuts man you go in so far and your like ah f-it im gonna spend another 100 haha. I wish. I would for sure be down to share a tent man with you so get me the particulars about it.

Well I got my wheel back from the repair shop today, they had some trouble sealing it up the first go around since its a 3 piece wheel. I know its tricky to mount the tire and not nick the seal when its somewhat fresh.

In any event they did awesome work and color matched the black. Straight as an arrow and balanced. Like them so much I decided to have them repair the damage to the back two wheels and I'm having the centers re-powdercoated black. Reasonable too he said he could get them all done for like 225 a wheel which will include any straightening that they may need.

Not sure they don't look new to me. My wheel is a 3 piece I know you're are two. Not sure if that matters. He didn't charge me anymore than we discussed initially so I can't really say.
