    Damn. Those C5 wheels really suck. And this is a thread containing a 3rd-gen F-Body. So when something sucks so bad that it commands attention over a 3rd-gen F-Body, you know it REALLY sucks.

    :rofl:

    Should I give a shit?

    These wheels were $150 and let me get rid of the 70's era front brakes for some decent 13" front brakes.
     
  4. dont really like them, but if you were able to upgrade brakes, more power to you.

    I used to really want those style. Now when I upgrade it'll either be to c6 style or to a ccw.

    Finished brake swap picture.


    And another side shot from tonight for good measure. The composition of this shot isn't what I would've liked. I would rather see where the tires meet the pavement and just a bit father to the right. Oh well.

    I also cut a quarter coil in front so it's raked a bit more now too. I'm content for now.
