Default New wheels for the GTP

Because I hate with a passion the 225 Kelly tires that are on the GTP, I took the wheels and tires off of the Turbo Grand Prix. They are 16x8 gold crosslaces with 245 50zr16 Aurora H107'* up front and 245 50zr16 Fuzion ZRi'* in the back.

Man can that car handle with a good set of tires. When i push the gas pedal, instead of spinning the tires for 3 minutes... the car goes. Not to mention the 1st gen offset makes it look beefy.

Klick fer da big piks!

Not sure how I feel about that gold on it but the rim design itself looks a lot better on it
