Photos of the new wheels

I just wanted to post a few photos of the new rims. My coworker has his own powder coating set-up in his garage and did these rims for me. I think she is finally finished.

I probably wouldn't have picked that color, but that sure looks like some nice powdercoat work.

How paranoid were you when you took them to get the tires mounted?

Toolboy: There is a guy here in town that manages a Peerless Tyres and he has two lowriders and he does all his own rims. He takes extra care of custom rims, so I go to him for all my wheel and tire work.

The red is a bit different, but it goes well with the other red accents. My interior is red and black (black seats with red piping) and my rear porsche logo under the rear taillights is red. Initially I was abit shocked myself, but they are growing on me.

I probably wouldn't put them on my car, but I do like it, it looks... hmm.. I can't really think of the word, but either way, it looks pretty good.

Now just throw in a little spacer and you've got it made! The red is different, but not necessarily bad; I give you 10 creative points

Mom said if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

The hours your Porsche spends parked, you don't get those back.

will944: I am down to 3 944s, 1 924, and 1 931. I have thinned the herd a bit. I got the 931 yesterday and will start parting it pretty soon.
