Those are the perfect rear tires and the most gorgeous wheels setup out there IMO

Thanks! Although I'm not sure how often I'll be using them... If they see 500 miles in 2010, that will be alot. I think the car will mostly be sitting on the Hoosiers (rear) and M&H skinnies up front (CCW Classic rims)...




Maybe I'll take the car out to Carlisle in August on the M/Ts & LM20 rims

Artie, I saw you

You passed me on Rt 539 about two minutes before I got to ECS. I am sorry I didn't get there a few seconds sooner to say hi!

Thanks for the note... I am really looking forward to getting her on the track and am targeting 3/20 to shake her down, hardcore

See you soon
Dave

Are those L5 qrts? Do you also have a mini tub? What size rear wheel and tire are you running?

I a looking for a 16x10 or 16x11 rear wheel for my 01, or a whole set of CCWs with the 16" skinney used, can't afford new right now.

What is the size and brand of the 16" skinny tire?

This setup is being installed by ECS as part of a winter mod and upgrade package. The new rims/tires have not seen any "action" yet - The plan is to shake her down on 3/20. No change in gearing from 2009, but will be running a powerglide in 2010.

You'll need to check fitment inside your wheel wells and near your rocker arms as each application may require individual adjustments. Z06 rear brake ducts may also need some tweaking.

No more pics yet, but certainly more on the way, once we get her on the track. I took a pic of the interior last Friday, which may explain why I don't have more pics of the finished product
