That'll buff right out. No worries.


Seriously, that sucks, but it'll be fixed good as new before you know it.

Maybe I'm wrong... happens a lot.

PS: Your car looks GREAT lowered.
I'm not sure... LOL I've got the spokes pointing forward... I can do them the other way... I guess Bonspeed will tell me



Edit:

added anoth pic of the spkes leaning the other direction...

You're probably right. I'm just used to looking at my symmetrical wheels.

I love the wheels you picked out. Those are going to look amazing when they really go on your car. Have you decided to go with 22s?

Hang on... don't anybody leave... I need witnesses. I have to go get my husband to prove something to him. I might actually be right about something!

Now about those wheels. Suppose you put the one on the back spinning one way and the one on the front spinning the other way...

..and make them 22s while you're at it...

I like em Chris!

If I had it to do over again I wouldn't have gotten 20s. I should have went with 18s or 19s. That's not to say I don't like the looks of the 20s, but as you know, they're just not as good for performance as a smaller wheel. Maybe this fall I'll get a new set.

Luckily it's only gonna cost about $400 to fix.... so Add $400 to my wheel budget...

I backed into a Chevy truck who was parked on the drivers side of me you can see the Parking Lot below. the truck was a 2500 crew cab, extended bed beast. So his bumper was way behind the bumper of my car... but plenty of room between the cars so I didn't notice it when I put my stuff in the trunk... I've been working mid shifts and just put in a 12 hour day and so I was pretty out of it anyway.....

Luckily its not bad at all and I wasn't really even that upset.... A guy in a Grand Sport Vette saw it happen... He was pretty upset... Which I thought was cool.. "Oh man I'd be sick right now..." the look on his face was like a parent when their kids get hurt...

All I could say was, "What can I do... it happens...."

So I've already got an appt for Monday

:upset:
NOOOOOOOOOOO!








..OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!!!


I feel your pain man. $400 ain't bad tho, my little back-up incident ended up costing close to $1200, and I didn't even hit another car
