Default New shoes!!

Finally got some tires put on my brand new z06 repro wheels from DOCZ and all I can say is WOW!!! It really changed the look of the car!! The wheels get a 10/10 from me and they also only needed a few weights to balance them.
I went with some bridgestone non run flats summer tires and wow... they cost more than the wheels. Ha, they are very good tires though.

Top picture is before and the bottom pictures are fresh outside the tire shop!

Getting them in black hides the ugly. Waiting until my tires is gone before I look into the aftermarket for something else.

You thought about lowering your car? Would make a difference.

Love the way the black Z06 style wheels look on your DSOM car.

Sad that they removed this color for 2017.
