    well, i got the tires mounted on the rims and the rims are on the car now! im a little disappointed though, i figured for my first set of tires id just buy some used ones because i really didnt want to drop that kind of money on new tires. My dad found some used Pirelli PZERO ROSSO tires with about 4-5/32nds tread left on them. They arent the prettiest tires ever but you should have seen them before I cleaned em up. The guy had sold us a bad rear tire (had a bubble in the side of it) but he said he would replace it. So right now, im only rolling on three of the new rims because we had already got the other wheels mounted on and already payed them. but tomorrow my dad is gettin the same tire and size from the guy so it will be on all four rims tomorrow. alas, heres the pictures!

    Re: WHEELS BABY!

    are u selling ur stock wheels?

    she's gonna big pimpin once you get everything installed. you'll be very happy with those mm c/c plates, installation on those is a breeze. springs take a bit longer, but not too bad. do you have new s/s as well or will those come later on down the road

    Re: WHEELS BABY!

    yes im selling my 98 cobra wheels, not sure on the price yet. and i will be getting s/s's (lol sssssss) but not ne time soon. im going to see how it rides and stuff once i get the springs on and that will determine how long it takes me to get them.

    they are pirelli pzero rosso's 255/40/18 fronts and 285/35/18 (i like the 40's sidewall better).. they are used with about 4-5/32nds tread left for only $160!!!!! rosso's are 250-330 a tire new! lol.. i thought that was a better deal than what i was going to buy.. bfg kdw 2's for 880 dollars.

    thanks for the comments guys, oh and i can't do my hpipe yet, i forgot that i got my stock hpipe welded onto my mufflers so now i have nothing to bolt the mac hpipe too.. ill have to go get someone to weld it on. its a offroad hpipe too, so time to find someone who will do it for me....

    paul, you know anyone around here that will do it?

    those sportlines are going to look KILLER!

    I stuck with the pro-kit so I could fit some 26" slicks up under there with no problem.. I hope **crosses fingers**
