Thanks, I sure like them. Parked the car in front of the house, so I could see them from the living room.

I'll post later tonight, when I have more time to give enough detail.

I'll be pulling the rims off and doing more painting myself, as the old rims totally hid the center portion of the rotors, and these don't. A splash of black should hid those rusty centers. Probably should use this opportunity to put a upgraded rotor on, which would be easier to paint.

Yepper. Live in Anoka, work in Vadnais Heights and Eden Prarie (depending on the day of the week)

I know there are quite a few of us in Minnesota, I just haven't had a chance to make any of those MN get togethers. (I think I was on a business trip for a couple of them, and remember to check to see if any are comming up, about a week after they occured. )

I also have family down in St. Peter, so drive through your town occasionally.

You guys planning a spring deal yet?

Those look really sharp. I would like to change the rims on my car at some point.
