I was nervous about losing "the look" too. But, the first time I saw my new wheels and then drove on them, I was really pleased that I had made the move to new wheels. I just wasn't enjoying the car before.

I think I'll be the same.

Won't be as bad ass performing as yours but it will be night and day from what I'm used to.

It might be. Remember, performance is largely affected by the driver... and I'll be driving mine! It's going to take me a long time to get the hang of it, but I'm happy to try!


Have Bonnie ride in the passenger seat and take a video of you the first time you drive it with the new sneakers. That would be fun!

I was on the phone with Chris earlier and I think I might have come up with a really cool idea.

When Tony calls me to tell me my wheels have shipped I can go out to and abandoned lot and roast the tires right off the car and keep going until the rims are down to the barrels in a firey display.

I will shed a small tear as the new owner of them drives off with them.

If I could be sure it wouldn't mess up the car in any way. LOL

But SURELY I can get a grand out of them. We'll see. Strip the paint off and put new tires on them and they are perfectly fine now. I just HATE them at this point. lol

I had a lot of people offering to just buy the tires when I was trying to sell my Savinis.

If you sell them on ebay, make sure you list them AS IS. No refunds of any kind for blemishes and no returns. ebay totally favors the buyers in any disputes. I got scammed out of an extra $500 on that.

Ya, I remember that. Sellers are evil.

I did a video to show exactly what someone will be getting. Did the video for a guy in Italy. Turned out he didn't want to pay shipping to Italy. LOL

You realize that if you do a burnout like that, the wheels might just come out round!

I'd LOVE to do that with these wheels. Might be an epic C5 video considering the Savini problems we['ve had.

I fear for my rotors, fenders etc...... lol

You could always send your wheels to forgline or whoever and have them melt down and re-use the aluminum for your new wheels since they're quality metal but just not round, or am I wrong?
