    dont think them bbs splits could look better than that really imo!
    seen it at AITP and looked stunning!
    them bbs splits would look good on a porsche track car maybe!
    if the rotors are gone i bet you will be kicking yourself!

    :laugh: I was refering to the car, I know your not a big fan :laugh:

    Poke ruins arches, ruined arches cost money to fix, spending money on ruined arches means I'm not spending it on something more important :laugh:

    Tuck = More lows, simples!

    N8, let's face it...the most beautiful thing about your car is not the wheels. It's the beauty that rides in the passenger seat:hubbahubba:
