Well decided to put on the new GM rims with Nitto NT555 tires this morning as there will be NO more snow
this spring. Here are a few quick shots taken this morning while down along the lakeshore area in Oakville.
I know the cars a bit dirty but is supposed to rain all night and tomorrow also so get a nature wash instead.

These are 18" rims all around with 245\45\18 up front and 275\40\18's on the rears lowered with H&R springs.
The rears are just a fingers distance from rubbing in the rear so off to Manny's this week to use a fender
rolling tool too make some more clearance.

Hopefully I will be able to get a little more traction now with the wider footprint tires.

That looks pimpy! However, I would have put 24" on it.:D

I got a great deal on the rims & tires or else I would have got a spare set of the OEM 7 spokes
and had them chromed, they look great also.
Riley, a little bling never hurts!
