Thanks guys. I though i might get hated on since there a little on the agressive side. That was before I knew about the vette rims looking like that.
I just got my car back and they look nice.
One thing that kinda bothers me is the axle nut is wide out in the open up front. I gotta figure something out for that.
I didn't get low pros or anything because I wanted to keep the stock height.
Just 225/55/17'*. I could have went with 235'* or 45'* but I was thinking about weight.
I'm really wanting those drop springs now.... and it'* got me wanting to do some some bodywork too...
Sorry for the lack of pics. I gotta borrow a digicam tomorrow and get that done.

Thats a ton of loot that I would rather spend on other things. Looking at it the past couple of days, I really want to drop it. That will probably be next.

No pics yet, I've been running around with some real **** luck.
<begin-rant>
The brand new wheel bearing I replaced the other day took a dump.. I'm 99.9% sure it'* because I impated the axle nut on. (everybody makes mistakes ) Put another one on, torqued it correctly and it drives good. BUT now the suspension clunks on 45 degree or more right hand turns. I haven't jacked it up yet and poked around to see what'* clunking yet but I have a few things to check after searching on here. It'* not getting worse though so that'* good. And yesterday I drove 100 miles down to the shore, came back to my car and it had a front flat.
It was a crumpled up staple from a staple gun in the corner of the tread, pretty much on the top of the side wall. so it has to be patched not plugged... I didn't have the $ or the time for a patch so I drove the dounut 100 miles home on all the lower speed limit backroads. I did switch the dounut to the back and put the goot back wheel/tire up front though. The old cross-lace wheel is on there now and lookin hoop-d as ever. At least I'm going to get it patched and balanced for free this weekend.
(two flats + two wheel bearings)/ two weeks = </end-rant>
