I like the UIM, how did you do that?

Also, you know you have to show us the dyno #'s for this when it gets tuned.

I had my decal guy make a decal with chrome vynal, then I took a scuff pad to it to give it a brushed aluminum look, then cleared over it.
As far as the dyno, maybe once I get the car where I want it.

Looks good man. I like the wheels... reminds me of the polished aluminum wheels on the dark blue F-bodies and 'vettes that GM used to have. Always liked that look.

I think you need to get a pontiac dart for that front bumper though. I know most people take the badges off, but with the indentation there on your bumper it's just too obvious that something is supposed to be there. ;)

Thanks and yea my old pontiac dart was well.....old! Faded and cracked. I completely agree with you and I'm planning on finding one from either a G6 or G8 since they look much better.

If those rims were 1" bigger your car would probably be my favorite GA.

blckgagt 05-08-2012 08:50 PM

The 17s do look somewhat small with the car lowered. 18s would be ideal, but I don't feel like shelling out money for rims at the moment when I already love the looks of these. Pfyc used to carry them back in the day. They were sold along side the 077s......same manufacturer. Unfortunately both are discontinued. Next set of rims would be perhaps some centerlines. Also it's funny Aaron that you mention they look like they were from the vette since the color of the car is a corvette color.....lemans metallic blue. I've also been a huge fan of 5 spokes for our cars.

Nice, I have the springs sitting behind me, just waiting to get my KYB gr2s and monroe mounts then they will be put on, I think the Canuck springs give the best even/low looking drop out of all the sets available for the GA

BTW how long have you had yours on?

And ya you definitely need to clean it then repost pics! lol

And another thing, with your tire setup in the rear, 255/35/18 did you have any rubbing issues? I wanted to go with 245/40/18 all around when lowered but idk if it'll rub or not without spacers

Ok the kit has been on for 3+ years and about 15-20k miles Possibly more miles I have not kept track of it. 2 things to really keep track of. As Soon as the suspension is put on get it aligned these springs will knock that alignment way off and you could ruin a brand new set of tires in a month. Dont ask me how I know ;crap

Second after 2-5k miles redo that alignment as these springs will settle and your tires will start wearing out fast.

I initally put the 255's on because I had to get a replacement set of tires fast, and cheap and a guy was selling the staggered setup off his 350z or some such car and the price was right so I grabbed them up and I loved the way the tires filled out the large gap in these wheel wells, so I decided to keep that look and no rubbing ever. I would not suggest 245/40/18's because it will change your speed but 255/35/18's would work and keep your speed very close to accurate though I am not sure how the tires would work up front I doubt there would be rub but I have never tried it.

Or better yet go with 245/35/18 that will have your speed off by less then .2mph

I already talked to someone about 245/35/18 that size is actually .1 of an inch smaller then stock tire diameter. I want a good enough tire size to where it fills the wheel well but also have enough sidewall to where the wheel doesn't look to big for the tire. 245/40/18 will only make my speedometer 2 mph off which isn't much or maybe 235/40/18

I actually got this at a savage yard and have been fixing it up since may 2010..
