Done deal. Ordered.

Done in about 5 weeks maybe a bit less.

I deviated a bit from the true balanced set as I had decided previous.

(Deviated, No pun inteded) NineBall is Deviate Motoring. lol

But everything is on order now. All from NineBall, all will be done at Forgeline. Tires and TPMS sensors mounted, wheels balanced and ready to go.

So I decided to go with...............





SP3P, Gloss black centers, Polished hoops. Nitto Invo 315/35 rear 295/35 front.

That is all.

Woo hoo!!!!

BTW, not promising anything here, but Nine Ball almost always over estimates how long the wheels take to get...

I'm betting you'll have 'em before the end of March!

PQ,

I spend more time reading than posting here, so you probably haven't seen too many posts by me (if any), and having said that, I have followed your wheel saga, so CONGRATS on the new ones. I hope they work out much better, and I'm pretty sure they will!

Thank you. As you know I'm pretty giddy.

The one thing I'm looking forward to like crazy is the driving.

Ya, he's pretty good about that. I told him today that I won't pester him. I'm not one of those that call over and over to get 'any word'.

I joke about that because 80% of our business is custom orders that we have to wait on for 6 to 8 weeks and I have customers swear it's been 7 weeks when in fact it's only been 4.

I've often joked that two weeks have went by in their minds before they get to their car. lol

Thank you much. I feel like I did when I was waiting on my car pre-production back Feb and March of 2009.

I might actually be THAT excited.

Yup. Even checked 'fast' and the 'grippy' boxes.

Yup. He really is. He just thinks he's slick at trying to hide it.

Tempering responses come with being a mod!

You poor dear.

It's the Savini Flintstones. They're not square, they're hand carved from stone so they're not PERFECTLY round.
