Sorry 'bout the dent in THR22 :(, but looks like a quick fix and will be good as new !! :)

Yup now that I've seen both of them... you're right. :thumbsup:

WadeWilson 02-25-2011 09:12 PM

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. :iono:

the bummer is it is 200% my fault.

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

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..." :D 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...." :laugh:

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 :facepalm:

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

PS: Your car looks GREAT lowered.

hmm... i like them the first way - has more of a "switchblade" look to them ;)

DGthe3 02-25-2011 10:25 PM

go with 19's ...

mlee 02-25-2011 10:27 PM

You've already got 20's... Put some DRs on those and expand those sweet wheels to 22s




....or shrink to 18's..:iono:

JusticePete 02-25-2011 11:14 PM

I think there was a paint defect in that area in need of repair anyway.

It really comes down to looks vs. performance. Always the tradeoff... only you can decide. Partial to 18's here for perf, but the 20s look great. :)

Yeouch.. Yeah all in all I got lucky.. when the dealer quoted me $400 I said, "hows monday?"

That's actually from the incident... I just grazed his bumper then crunch...

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

Yeah the dealer seemed to think it was not very bad at all.. He said he could make it perfect for about 800 and he could make it so I'll probably be the only one to notice for $400... ;)

Yeah, I've always been a looks first guy... but this car is certainly the highest HP car I've ever owned so I want the best of both worlds...

20's seems like the best compromise. :D

SSE 4 2SS 02-26-2011 11:30 AM

20's for the street, and 18's for the rear on strip days... Sorry to hear about the fender bender, but it sounds like you have a fast fender mender... so it's all good...

It helps reduce slices as well....

Plus you can get the dimples in DayGlo Orange or Neon Yellow/Green.
Match those 30" rims you are getting...

A good part of I-10 in west Tx is 80-ish speed limit now, that should help. Get C.B.'s and Randy can teach you to talk "Trucker" :laugh:
