I Got New Wheels!!

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.

Looking tops matey.

You might find that bumper is repairable if you tap the dint back out from the outside? That's often the case anyway.

Re: I Got New Wheels!!

The wheels look great! Too bad about the bumper though, I hope you can get it fixed without too much hassle.
