I finally got myself some nice rims! I thought to myself this morning "hmmm....hubcaps look so ghey!". So off I march down to the credit union and squeeze another $2500 onto my car loan and went to visit my local tyre shops.
After not seeing anything I liked and shops running out fast, I reluctantly paid a visit to Bob Jane T-Marts (had a bad experience with them previously) and found a set of AMG Quakes in hyper silver which I have always found sexy! I got them for $1450 with tyres (235/45/17's).
Then I went round to the local Autobarn and ordered a set of King Super Low springs for the biatch as well. They were only $125 a pair, which I thought was a bargain!
The wheels make the car look totally different! It looks awesome and the super lows will just top it off! Unfortunately, they won't be in till next weekend. I will post some pics of it in the morning as it is now, and then when I get the springs in next week. I would have loved to spend the rest of the cash on it as well, but I owed my gf money and she did the whole guilt trip thing on me, so I gave her the rest :(
The downside to this is, I went to show one of my mates my new rims and as I was backing out of the driveway after showing them off, his gf reversed straight into the front of my bloody car while I was waiting for traffic!!
My mates a panel beater, so he rang his boss and got a new front bar ordered for me straight away, so she'll be all fixed up next week.
