Yup, the Mystic is setting aside right now too. The trans is supposedly low mileage rebuild, tons of paperwork, but def got a few unhappy synchros. I never really connected with the car. It was fun but I didn't feel right doing any mods to it with it being a decent driver Mystic. So it'll get fixed eventually when I feel like dropping the trans and sold to fund other, more fun things like this car and the Vette.

Well I snagged a great deal on some of my favorite wheels ever. Tires are absolutely trashed and one wheel has some chrome trying to leave the chat but I couldn't pass them up for the price. I'm not crazy about the hydrodipped CF but it's growing on me but looking to get these powdercoated around the first of the year. The parts pile grows.

I had a set of 18x9/11 True Forged Vector wheels. Mine were fully polished and mint. I only had them on the car for 1 season before I took them off and regretfully sold them (for a very pretty penny). Keeping up with the polished wheels was just too much for me. I barely drive my car at all either. Sounds like yours are chrome, and you're going with PC anyway.

Seriously though, TF is the real deal. Fantastic wheels. What size? Do they have the IRS offset and big brake cut?
The IRS offset put the wheels right out to the edge of the rear quarter on my 98. The TF 03/04 wheels fit perfect on our cars.

The owner wasn't 100% sure on size and offsets. I'm pretty confident they are 18x9/11, but he was thinking 18x9/9.5, which is goofy because they've got 335s mounted on the rears with minimum bulge. They were on a New Edge SA car, so they might be a little pokey but I'll find out this afternoon, about to mock them up on the Mystic just to see the one a car, the 94 is way too low for them currently.

looks like a nice shop. Contractors suck....

This has been the weirdest deal, I'm STILL waiting on the garage door. If you get the right person at the company, stuff moves nice and fast, but apparently it's a gamble.

There's info engraved on the back of each wheel, you could always contact Steve and get all the specs.
I bet they are 18x9/11.

This was what mine looked like. Does the rear lip look similar on yours?

You can vaguely see the engraved # on the hub in this pic. It's between 2 of the holes in the top left of the hub in the pic.IMG_20221218_134216.jpg

Slapped them on the Mystic to see what I was working with. Offsets look dead on for a SN95 to me. Rear might take a slight spacer to get more flush, but as it sits right now, it looks like I'd have plenty of fender lip clearance and I've got plenty of room for the quad shocks on this car with those 335 Nittos on the back.

Mine don't have any engravings on the rear, maybe we will find something when we pull the tires off?

Maybe? The hub was where Steve told me to look.

They look great though, can't even tell they have the cf treatment
