I hear you there man... I bought my wheels from Cruizin Concepts. Same style. 18x9 up front and 18x10 in the back. The wheels actually cost half what i paid for my tires :/ Michelin Pilot Sports are NOT cheap.

Glad you are pleased. Too bad you have to wait that long to bolt them on. But it will be well worth the wait.

well finally got the car out of storage,

also i just got my tires in today.
I got Cooper CS4 Touring 245/45/18. Its a good DD tire rated at 60,000 miles and i won't have to worry about any rubbing.

Now i just gotta wait for my new locking lug nuts to get here and they will be on the car..only a few more days!!

Pic i took today after getting it home (still dirty)...probably the last pic to be taken with the stock wheels.

Nice! I am still on the fence about whether I want the Saleens or the Cobra R's...SUCH A HARD CHOICE!!! Once my return is deposited, I'm def deciding. Also, by any chance do you know if the guys at the shop sell/mount tires? If they do, I'd love to see a fully assembled set of wheels and tires show up to my door.
