    17s - no, 18s maybe, 19s - yes.

    I know this is a tough one for you, but I kind of enjoy stopping.

    stopping is over rated. pretty sure its just a fad started by those dang millenials...

      then I should probably mention the one time I didn't stop and ended up in jail. I've grown affectionate towards stopping, which I did, now I'm just a damn quitter.

          why just do one crime? you get a volume discount for all the crimes.

            but that wasnt a hi speed stop now deal was it?
            more like a "pull over....oh crepe hes a runnin".....?

            of course i could be wrong. i still think hooker
            heels on a grandmother is all kinds of wrong,
            no matter the reasoning. but hey- to each his own !




            edit--- im actually jealous, your newest piece of spaztic plastic
            is (as everything else you do) awesome. i want those flares.
            i want that motor. i want the side pipes. i want the 4spd.
            but the rims and tires you can keep.

              did you miss the bit about how I had tried to get rid of those wheels, but they're useful now so I can make the opening right? those are like paint wheels - useful only for body work purposes... eventually it gets Z06 wheels.

                  the last two styles... either is fine, I haven't pulled the trigger because I need to explore all options.

                    C7 Z06 is an awesome wheel . I think the Z28 uses it as well . I never saw them in any other finish than black . I went online and they have some in gun metal gray and chrome . They look great in shiny black but I will admit I love polished aluminum the best . Maybe one of these days .

                      back to offending people who hate Corvettes
                      I've decided I don't care. The fix is to pie slice the passenger side about 1/3 up from the front edge... but frankly, I'm the only person who will ever notice



                      now I need to wait for the coil overs, and get moving on ordering the bits for the front suspension

                      I think it looks cool so low - it moves up about an inch but it's going to be low (as low as my other, and it was never a problem)

                          the pie slice is a perfect solution. VERY common in bodywork, ive even
                          made a cowl hood out of a flat one...in both 'glass AND metal.
                          fun stuff. i just hate all the dust from sanding!

                            it looks crazy, like a full sizes version of one of those jada toys 1:64 corvettes...
