PQ, we have a thing out here on the rig called a feelings box... when you show up on the rig, you walk by it and drop your lil feelers in it and you leave them there until it's time to go home... You walk by, pick em up and carry them home with you...

Do we need a Camaro5 Feelers box...

I can start a thread where you can put them... Just trying to be helpful...

Just saw you got your wheels sold. Have your Forgelines come in or are you on jackstands?

YAY! The anchors are history! I'm so happy for you...

Once the new Forgelines are on the car you'll wonder why you waited so long. Good times ahead!

I am glad your wheel issues are resolved just so sorry you took a beating on them...such a shame that they wouldn't make it right....but I know the feeling. But the good thing is that you will get better performance out of your new wheels.

And once again... PQ's car sits upon jack stands...

I think this thread has more pics of a Camaro on jack stands than any other thread in the forums...

You should take a video the first time you drive on the Forgelines... what a difference. You'll be able to use your power a lot better!

Well, I am in Alabama with a Camaro.

It's true though. These wheels have been an utter failure of a purchase.

From the early vibrations to the paint to the air leaks. But even after all of that the reason I'm selling them is for performance.

I didn't end up with a balanced set-up. Forgeline had limitations. I was going to have to get only the one series wheel. Stepped lip and none of them appealed to me at all. The front lip was going to be a little deeper than the rear which would have been fine but they just didn't want to do but the one type. I ended up going with basically the same as the ZL1. 11 wide rear 10 wide front. Only tires that can go on that balanced set were going to run 2200.00 for tires. I'm just not a good enough driver to justify that.
