Hey LS-3 Captain, I may have mis-read this, but.................... based on what PQ said and you're reply, I think others may question your uhmmmmm..... man-hood.... though I have no doubt, I'm just saying.... :bellyroll:...though I understand you may just be playing the psychological card on PQ....

These are the wheels I'm seriously considering...I really understand your trials, I have spent hours and hours looking at wheels....

NO,,, I'm ok now... just a momentary lapse... I'm good. and dayum I like that wheel... :thumbsup:

The 5 spokes you displayed so far look great !!
I like the Bonspeeds.

Yep... I called and got a quote on the BS Malibus. I'm still partial to that Polished billet wheel look from my Sport truck days... :D

Well, the good news... I'm getting a quote ready... I really don't have a way to pay for them right now. While the Wife is in school we're single income... so Camaro funds are not really there. But Sean @ WSAIZ is working up a quote for my rims and tires...

Heres a couple shots. I also lowered my car while I was photoshopin' the wheels....

:D

Before and after. :thumbsup:

The wheels look sweet. Ummm... are you sure they are not supposed to be the other way around though? Those directional wheels are supposed to go on a certain way (L or R). They look backward to me - like the left wheels are on the right side of the car. Can you flip them the other way?

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

PS: Your car looks GREAT lowered.

Now the bad....
THR 22 has been wounded in battle...

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:

Darth_Emma 02-25-2011 08:14 PM

That'll buff right out. No worries. :)


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

I'm not sure... LOL I've got the spokes pointing forward... I can do them the other way... I guess Bonspeed will tell me :iono:

:laugh:

Edit:

added anoth pic of the spkes leaning the other direction...

not as good of a photoshp but... :iono:

Darth_Emma 02-25-2011 08:16 PM

You're probably right. I'm just used to looking at my symmetrical wheels.

I love the wheels you picked out. Those are going to look amazing when they really go on your car. Have you decided to go with 22s?

Those directional rims look good spinning the 2nd "DE" way...

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