Awesome! I want those on my car too. Hopefully I'm not poor much longer.

Hey BlkBrd95....

Very nice....really like the wheels.

Also, where did you end up getting your UCA's, LCA's, etc.... What brand are they? Did you get a good deal, etc? (I am looking to purchase the same pretty soon).

Thanks.

haha salivating is an understatement!! BIG understatement!!

DLF - i'm sure there will be a wtf regardless

Tailwind - the uca's and sway bar links are from autozone. the uca's where about $53 a piece and the sway bar links were about $25 a piece. both were cheaper than getting them from bill on super coupe performance. they're duralast brand.

the lca's are from scp... they're like $53 a piece on there and $107 a piece from autozone. not sure what brand they are right off the top of my head but on the site bill has them listed as oem replacements.

Keep your eyes on those suspension components... unless they're Moog or TRW (Motorcraft) you may be replacing them within months...

OEM replacements just means they bolt right on. It doesn't mean same brand as OEM.

i love those wheels....BUT i hate polishing them up every 5 min to stay shiny. if you don't keep excellent upkeep, they will dull real fast and take longer and harder every time to polish.

not to be mean or anything but that warranty does not cover when your lower ball joint breaks, the wheel goes slamming up inside your fender, you lose complete control of your vehicle doing 60 mph go off the road crash and become seriously injured or go into the other lane and injure someone else does it???

I run those in Chrome on my car and still love them. They're the best looking wheels I've had on it to date.

Thanks go to Brad for a great offering!
