I'm getting them first! Going to Discount tire Saturday to see if they have them in stock to see what sizes they carry. Online I can only find 17-8's , 17-10's, or 18-8,s and 18-10's. I'm thinking about 17-10's all around with 275 rubber if that size will look good. A guy on Mifbody has Smoothie 2's 17-10's all around on his Camaro.

I went to Discount tire today... They don't have them in stock and can't call Boyd tell Monday. Why don't you just order another Smoothie 2 rims? I will for sure send pics if I get them. I keep hearind mixed comments on Boyd rims. Alot of people say they really don't have that high of quality. I've never seen one up close. I will send youpics,if you post up some pics of your current combo.

How would 17-10's look with 275 nitto rubber all around?

Just looking for something a little different. I've considered the TT2 rims and may still get them.

18's will do that to acceleration. I'm thinking 17-10 all around Junk yard dog rims are what I will get if Discount tire ever gets there butt's going.

- How long doe's it take for boyd to get his rims out?

Just got a quote from Discount online for approx. $2145.00.
4X 17-10 inch Junk yard dog wheels
4X P275/40ZR-17 Nitto NT555 extreme tires

I know that those tires look good on the 9.5 inch wide TT2 wheels but how about a 10 inch wide rim? I'm going to make sure they can have all this within a week from my order.

why are you steering away from 18's, there the max to go before you start to sacrifice performance

A) Price
B) The cost of tires
C) Easyer to damage
D) More bling...... Less performance
17's are about as big as you want to go without loosing power from weight receprecating further away from the center of the tire. Sure I may not notice even notice it..... but it is a good excuse to go with 17's. I did consider going 18's out back and 17's up front for awhile. I think 17-10's will look great and still have a bit of bling. The best part is I will be able to rotate them until fall when I get drag slicks. I just hope 275's look good on them.

Never mind.... Look's like a 275 tire won't look good on a 10 inch rim. I was told to go at least 285 and I don't think that would work up front. Guess I am either going with 18-9's all around. Or 18's out back, and 17-8's up front. I've been looking into that BFG g-force exotic tire tread.

Myth 01 how did you smash your old ones?
What kind of polish do you use?
I think I am going to order Zoop seal

It's official.

Ordered Two 18-9's with 275-35-18 BFG g-Force tires

Combined with two 17-8's and 245-40-17's up front.

Also ordered zoop seal, lug nuts, Ceramic Hawk pads, and some more of my special wax.

Don't even ask how much money I spent. Pics in the next few days
