I may be visiting TH earlier than expected.

Problem is 'Expected' was 2 years. 'Eralier' is a year. :thumbdown:

But plenty of time to see your car run and how it holds up. I worry bout that tranny.

My list of wheel choices
 
Gah!!!!

wheels are killing me...

My choices so far..

Bonspeed Delta:

I've liked this wheel for a few years now...

http://viprims.com/newimages/bonspeed/bigpics/delta.jpg

Bonspeed Malibu:

http://www.spinnerwheels.com.au/e0f90900.jpg

Iconz 630Z
Pretty much the same as the Iforged.

http://www.iconzwheels.com/images/IC...0up630ZNew.jpg

More wheels will be added to the list, I'm sure... :facepalm:

EDIT 1:
After looking at Boze I could go with this one.

Boze Fivespeed:
http://www.bozeforged.com/images/whe...vespeed_bg.gif

EDIT 2:
CCW SP18:
http://www.performanceautowerks.com/...es/CCWSP18.jpg

Mr. Wyndham 01-14-2010 08:27 PM

Oooohhhh....the Delta is Really good-looking!

Mr Twisty 01-15-2010 09:27 AM

Wheel choice is too personal for me to get involved... But if Tom needs a camera man I can stop by my next time thru :wave:

These look great!!!

Crowley

bonspeedbrad 01-15-2010 10:28 PM

Hey, I like the DELTA and the Malibu, but I am bias!

The bonspeed GT-b also looks great on the new 2010 Camaros. I have done them in Brushed Smoke Titanium and all Semi-Gloss Black.

http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l2...nspeed_GTb.png

Another to consider is the bonspeed Jag-X will look great on a 2010 Camaro.

Brad thanks very much for your input.... :thumbsup:

But... we're trying to narrow down my choices.. :D ;)

:thumbsup:

I do like the GT-B... Is it available with out the rivets?

bonspeedbrad 01-16-2010 11:45 AM

The GTb actually has small dimples machined into the wheel, they are not rivets or bolts just a styling detail. THANKS!

There is a reason why GM puts the 6L90 in the CTS-V.................But the 6L80 is pretty stout. Check out what GM is putting in it's trucks for some pretty sever duty stuff for trailerin and off roading etc.

:laugh:

So you think this thread is all about making you feel better? LOL

All you need to worry about is if THR has a car for you by the Fest. No other worries. None, zero, zip.

If you don't have a car by the Fest and show up with a Mazda 3 or a Tahoe, not only will you feel like crap, but you will get nothing BUT crap from everyone there.

So focus on the only real thing to worry about.......................DELIVERY DATE!!!!!!!!

3 hours of burnouts on youtube are nearly meaningless anyway..............................nearly.
