Also, just posting this vid so I don't lose it Was a test and tune run against an RX-7. Got demolished but it was pretty fun nonetheless. Had my buddy filming the whole thing.

Nice, can't wait to see the wheels. But yea you don't even stand a chance against a RX-7. Do you know if he still had the Dorito under the hood?

Yea, I'm anxiously awaiting them. I know I didn't stand a chance but we were having fun and I wanted to see just how bad it'd be

Beautiful wheels! I wish I seeing those before! Will match my theme perfect in white!

Thank you, hopefully they look as good in person as in the pics.

Oh and u could always sell yours and buy these as well? If you think about it, I highly recommend contacting need4speed motorsports. They got me an INSANE deal I just couldn't pass up

Also just checked the shipping and it looks like I'll have the wheels Thursday instead of Friday as originally though! Love when things get delivered early!

Well got the wheels yesterday and was ecstatic to put them on today. Here are the obligatory pics. These are only the beginning pics since I'm going to find some better light later to take others. I have to say I was extremely surprised with just how deep concave these are in the rear. It's hard to capture in pics but I'll try to capture it better later. I love them! Makes the car look very "meaty" and "muscle car" like with the huge tires in the rear.

Also have to give a HUGE shout out to Paul at Need4Speed Motorsports for having my back through this whole process. The price he got me was amazing and his customer service was absolutely outstanding. I would not hesitate to do business with them again.


P.S. The calipers will be repainted very soon

Have gotten some more pics over the last few days. Hopefully I can get a hold of my girlfriends real camera soon so I can take some real pics! These help show the concave action in the back. It looks crazy in person!!!
