I second that. You can't go wrong with the classic 5 spoke.

Congrats. I know how hard it is to wait. I had to wait about 3 months after I got my rims before I could afford to buy the tires to put on them.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. Fusion® Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)

Yeah it absolutely sucked! I was waiting for my tax return to buy the tires. (which end up being almost as much as the wheels)

Nice 5 spokes! - if/when i upgrade this is the style i want, but in matte silver.
your car WILL look a lot better when lowered tastefully, agree with others.

Gnereal comment:
I want to do this someday but i always think as our rotors are so small in diameter, the 'empty' space betw. the wheel and the rotor looks odd, (this could be seen well in the 3rd pic from top - look @ the front wheel and the rotor)
...I wish the rotors were larger so they will fill that space out a bit...That's one thing that discourages me from going to larger wheels...if and when I ever upgrade wheels, i will upgrade the brakes/rotors too...

My buddy found it on mautofied.com. The windows weren't tinted and it had the sport wheels on it.. I figured it was probably just an old add. He's been looking like crazy on the internet for a tbird.

WTF! Im pissed, he's saying that its his car but he has removed the sticker and louver.

Stating in the ad that the pic of the car is NOT the actual car is one thing, but to make people think that it is your car is just messed up.

Might have to give this guy a call about HIS car for sale.

did he save your pic and host it on his own site?
or is it a pic he "borrowed" from you?

if he is just hotlinking it, then change the picture in the hot link with like 2 dudes getting it on, so when someone clicks on his for sale add, they get to see two dudes bumping uglys!

After reading what he says about the car it does not surprise me that he did this anymore. "THE CAR DOSE NOT HAVE LUVERS OR DECALS" Umm, not how you spell does, which is a pretty simple word and as I can see, there can and is only be one louver, which he also spelt wrong. And then "they was removed" Really? Great English buddy... He is obviously not on the smart side of the spectrum.
