Way to park far away from all the other dbags at school!

Unless that's a Safeway or something in the back, in which case, way to park far away from dbags in life

They are some Avon All Seasons. Tires are kinda bad but I don't drive in the snow so not to worried about it. Stock size except I put a 1/4in spacer in the back.

Haha thanks Mac! This was at the bank, at school I park next to a cross walk that no one uses and my friend parks next to me. Well sorta I give him a bunch of room so he can open his door all the way with no risk of hitting me. Hoping you and Jenn are doing good. Hope to see you all soon!

Alright we'll I had to switch wheels, again. The tires on the Z06 replicas were a little to scary. No traction what so ever. So I decided to plastidip my chrome Zr1's. here's how it turned out.

Well, hopefully that'll keep the chrome decent over the winter. You guys don't get salt down there, so you should be ok.

Actually we do get a decent amount of salt around here. But snow here is hit or miss. Either alot of almost nothing. So we will see.

Well,I guess you're a bit further north that I was in McLean. They just used sand as far as I can recall.

Well I took the Avons off and the ZR1's are BFG g force super sports. I really like them. Have no trouble in the rain, pretty good traction. I would definitely buy again for a DD. for a summer tire I'm thinking some Hankooks of Nittos

The bfg tires you have are a nice tire for a daily driver. Imho, they do everything well. If you want a summer only tire with lots of grip, I really like the nt05 from Nitto. I have heard good things about the Hankooks as well.

Yea if this car continues to be my daily after high school, I will most likely replace the tires with these. I was at pepboys and they had the Hankooks there but they were like 780 I believe. Don't need tires at the moment was just BSing around. Really liked the tread pattern on them. I've also heard good things about the Nt555 and 555r

Yep, 17" rims can be pricey. My NT05 were around 800 installed.

I have heard nothing but good things about the nittos you listed. If my car was a daily driver, I'd be running the NT555 tires.

I see you took off the front cover, do you see the attachment points all that well? My car is white, so I'm a little hesitant to do the same to it because I don't want the attachment points standing out drawing attention to them.

They use a lot of salt in NoVA on 95. Just take a look at the underside of my cars during the winter.

Yea I notice them all the time! But I'm gettin ready to order a SLP grille so I don't have to worry about them anymore. I mean it looks good for being a free mod. Don't think I've seen a white camaro with it done.
