Set a new personal record for swapping mid-pipes. Managed to swap from factory to my Bassani O/R X in 35 minutes (with a lift and power tools)

You decide what wheels your going with yet?
Yup, I'm gonna buy a set of these...

Mach 1 style Mustang Wheel

I'm going with 17x9 all around. Now I need to find a shop around here that has the Michelin Pilot Sport Plus tires and I'll be set. I wanted to wait until next year, but I guess AFS Wheels often go for months before they make a new batch of the Mach 1 replica wheels. I don't want to miss out.

Impressive. I changed the axle-back on mine last Monday in 12 minutes. Granted it is pretty easy on an '06, but I was impressed with myself at least haha.

I did a nice burnout leaving work today with the windows down since it was so nice out. No complaints.

Those will look sweet.... And why not just get them from tire rack. Com? Les shuab quoted me $840 for my tires.... I got them for $450...given I don't get free flat repair but what's a flat $20 to fix?

Yeah but are your nitto's all season tires...? I'm assuming so.. I'm telling you Continental DWS is the way to go if you want all season's... Well I like them at least.

That's where I figured out what I want, but how much is it gonna cost to have them mounted and balanced. Too bad tire rack doesn't sell the wheels I want. i think Big-O carries Michelin.

Les shuab quoted me $ 25 a tire to mount and balance. When I got my jeep lifted and put tires on it a place called Burt Brothers did it for $15 a tire... Either way I think you will save money.

Interesting I did not know that.... And Burt Brothers is only in Utah I believe.. And les schwab has the best customer service ever. Free flat repairs, free rotating and balancing, and free brake checks... It's a good place. You may have an equivalent over there...?

Discount tire has mitchelin with lifetime balancing. They can probably get the wheels too. They price match anyone on the web.

Falken FK452's are often compared to the NT555, and The Falken tends to get favorable reviews. They are close to the same price as the Nittos though.

Probably because they are so expensive.... They make good off road tires i will give them that. I actually didn't even know they made performance tires.

I bought a used set of Goodyears for my vette. When I picked it up they played me funny by putting toyos on it, worst ridding tires I have ever owned. They rode like a 10ply biased tire. I wouldn't put them on my car of they were free.
