We got the order in yesterday, and somebody must love you PQ, 'cause MSRP on those babies is over $6k! They should look absolutely incredible on your lowered black 'Maro.

Yup. Somebody hooked me up big time. Tell my wheels I said hello and I'll see them soon.

Oh, and Nine Ball (Tony) rocks.

Hey, Nine Ball?

I need some locking lugs. Can we get that done now or do I need to wait?

Go to Discount Tire or any store nearby and pick up a set of 14mm x 1.5 lugs. I use Gorilla brand lugs, prefer the splined "tuner" style lugs myself. They also sell complete lug and lock kits. Conical seat, typical lugs.

So pretty standard then? Cool. Would the lock lug on my 21 inchers work?

Without seeing a pic of your lug, I can't answer that. OEM lugs are often times fat in outer diameter, leaving no room for a socket to tighten them in an aftermarket wheel. The conical seat should be the same on yours though.

I'll just check it out when the time comes. Just sold my 20s

Gave him a hell of a deal imo. 1000.00 he'll pick them up.

Ya, that's about the price of replacement tires mounted and balanced alone, but he is a member here so I feel cool about it.

Agreed - the OEM stuff is really wide. We drill our lug holes pretty wide though (28mm) so they might work - just be very careful getting the socket in and out of the lug hole

Tony's suggestion for Gorilla though is a good one, they make great stuff! We use White Knight as well but I don't know whether or not they retail their own products (http://www.whtknight.com).

Haha, yeah, totally. To be honest, I couldn't find my office chair this morning, so I'm sitting on one of your completed wheels. My coworker needed something to eat his breakfast on, so he laid one on its side as a table, worked nice!

And I think one of the fronts is being used as a bathroom fixture in the back...
