Here are some pics of my car with my newly aquired gt-s wheels with my new tires as well.

I got the rims from Ben(ciento44), and bought my tires from tire rack. They are Kumho Ecsta AST 205-45-16. They seem to grip really well, and so far I am very happy with the setup.

I was even more pleases with the price of the tires though. $39 per tire!!

Makes me miss my old GT. Great looking cars and I love the color matched factory mudflaps... those things were always on my 'to do' list but i never got around to it.

Ya Jeremy, that is snow :(..

The weather here is so weird bc its cold as shit, but its drizzling.

Ya, I try and wax it regularly, just to keep it nice...

Ahhhh they just look like they were made for 5th gens.

Ryan

One thing I really like about them, that is just a nice little added touch, is the red line on the center caps instead of black. I haven't seen many with the red line, and I was told that it is a little bit "rare" for them...

Ryan

I had vented ones, but I sold them because I needed money really bad. I will get another set soon.

Undagrwnd, what do you mean "old" ones?

Probably the MB 17"s?

Those are relatively gangster. I want some 7gen rims for no reason.

Ryan

Those 17's I had were the cheapest wheels evar!!

Yes, they looked good. But here is why I did not like them...

They were cheaply made, and made of cheap metal, therefore, they bent VERY easily.

They were too big for ME personally, because they had too low of a profile of tire, and caused a very rough ride, and the roads around here suck, and I did not want to bend them.

Lastly, the tires that were on the rims were some of the shittiest tires. The treadwear on them were HORRIBLE, and they were just really cheap tires, that "looked cool".

I think the 16s are perfect for this car, because you can fit a bit bigger of a tire on there, to prevent bending and increasing the ride quality.

Again, these are my opinions, I know you guys have your own, but this is my car.

Also, I sold the 17s for what was paid for them, with less tread on the tire than when I got them.

Sounds like a win to me :D

Ryan, you want my 92-93 tail corners?

They're redded out, just whenever you come down again you can have them.

And i hate you.

I didn't realize they were that clean.... those would have looked SICK on my car. :(

Well, I dont know when I will be down there again, Maybe you could send em to me, and I could hook joo up with the money for shipping??

And think of it this way, I am going to take super good care of these wheels, you can ask aaron, when I had the 17s, I was cleaning them every day or two...

And I like these waaayyyyy more than the 17s.

:hehe:

They were pretty cheap. I bent one when I had the car and was always having to try to dodge potholes to try to not bend them.

I like the gts wheels alot. I would have kept mine if I was able to put a wider tire on them.

Better be springs... :inout:

01-15-2009, 02:25 AM
^haha... I agree that springs would set it off very nicely.

Ryan
01-15-2009, 02:52 AM
I have lowering springs already...

I am definitely getting the windows tinted, front and rear strut braces, a few stereo things, rear sway bar, and someday an alltrac hood, and an exhaust.
