View Full Version : New Rimmies!

02-10-2007, 05:23 PM
Well, after all the hashing back and forth over fixing my bent stock rim or buying new ones, and whether or not I could buy a different sized tire later, I finally just went to the damn tire place and bought a pair of rims for the front. The rears will be coming soon, with my next paycheck.

Here are the pics (sorry the car's so damn dirty, been driving it to work every day 80 kms).

PS: The car was in an accident way before I owned it, five years ago, and someone put it back together who didn't really know what they were doing, that's why my front end looks a little...uhm...misaligned. Will be fixing that up in the future.

Wow thanks for being so observant.

YES I only got two wheels, unfortunately funds are a little limited so I bought two this time, and I'll get two more soon enough. Big deal...

I don't like the coupe's, they look too square, not curvy enough for me.
One day I will probably lower it, and paint it...etc., but all this takes money and I don't exactly have buckets to spend.

Curves FTMFW!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't worry, as long as you take care of her and maintain her she'll be there for you to do it once you have $$.

Looking good... But I must agree, get the other two wheels ASAP... It's like having a kit and leaving it primer grey on a black car.

Otherwise, go you!

Yeah, I understand. I needed the bent rim fixed though...

Still have the shuddering issue that I was having with the bent rim. Not nearly as bad...got my axle nuts torqued properly, they were loose before because the last douchebag who put the car back together didn't tighten them.

Then got an alignment.

Then found out my rear right wheel bearing is shot.
