Default GOT MY T-STARS TODAY!!!!! ;-p

Here'* what was waiting for me on the back porch when I got home this evening.....



Here they are in all of their dirty glory......






Went to work with a soft towel and water.......






The only issue that I've found with them up to this point is some curb rash on one rim.... probably 3 or 4 inches long.......



All things considered, I'm extremely happy with the overall condition of the rims. No moronic balancing weight marks on the outside edges..... very minimal curb rash..... no pitted rust.... I couldnt have asked for a better set all things considered. Robert at Bowers Used Parts in Lancaster, SC hooked me up! And a big thanks to Hans for posting the list of yards with these in stock...... without that I would have never found Bowers(though they wernt on his list of NC yards, the guys in Fairmont that I called from the list gave me the number for Bowers).

Now it'* time to find some new rubber for these beauties!

Thanks man.......

I need new tires since I'm running a mismatched set of el-crapo tires at the moment. Havent bought a decent set of tires for this car yet so I dont know where to start looking.

Money will be the deciding factor...... gotta save some green for the rubber.

The wait is going to KILL me.

Thanks!! And yes, I'll be selling the old rims. Let me know if you're interested.

My guess will be in the next 30 days.

Thank you Sir...... my 5 year old asked me if we could go and put them on after we cleaned them.

I'll be sure to put some locking lugs on these so someone doesnt get any funny ideas.
