Got some new wheels (Pics)

I got rid of the ZR1s and Welds (well summits knockoff version haha) a while back and so Ive been rolling around on the stcok 16s but I made a rare find the other day so I bought some new 17s.

They are LG world challenge wheels and they have been discontinued and they are extremely rare, its not even easy to find pictures of them, oh an dthey are 17x9.5, for now the fronts are gettin some sumitomo HTR ZII maybe some KDW and the rears get the nitto DRs.

Oh and they are being refinshed before the go on the car, once the motor goes in, the rears will be widened to 17x11 for some 315s

Listen dipshit go back and read, it says they will be refinished before going on the car. I put those on just to snap some pics.

I work at a tire shop, I know about assymetrical and direction tires. The car never moved with the tire mounted backwards.


Anyways, Im still rollin the stockers, Wheel technologies has still not made it out to pick these up. They are supposed to come the day you call and if not then the next day, I called on monday and still nothing, called back today and the lady said she would find out and call me back...nothing.

Im gettin so pissed im seriously considering buying some 18" TSW Nogaros and then just having these done whenever WT decides to come at and put my track tires on them.

But I think the forged shortblock waiting to go in is more important than rushing to get some wheels on, oh and I know the car looks like a 4x4 with the 17s on.

I sold my old Koni/revalved bilsteins setup, so I have to wait on Sam strano to get me my new shocks and I have to decide on springs currently between DMS Strano and LG. But the car wont be cruisin on the drag springs for very long after the 17s go on.

Well they have been completely refinished and trued and they now have 4 brand new tires on them but I cant put them on the car because I have a broken leg and I cant drive the Z up to work and put them on.

DAMN
