    F/S (2) 17x9 + (2) 17x10.5 AFS '03 cobra wheels machined finish

    Wheels are still new in box, never mounted (I switched to chromies). I'm located just west of Detroit, best reasonable offer to pick'em up gets them. Not interested in shipping - sorry.

    GS-D3 tires 4-sale

    If any one is running low on tread, I have some nearly new 275 GS-D3's on my recently totalled cobra. The insurance company bought it, but said I could swap another set of tires onto the car as long as they have 3/32" tread left and are the stock size and mounted on stock wheels. I payed...

    1 Less Terminator - help w/hit&run..

    Well, I think mine is a goner. I got rear-ended by an Excursion monday morning in Dearborn (Outer DR in front of Dearborn High). I was stopped at the red light and never saw him (he must have been doing ~40 and hit me pretty good as I got shot into the intersection and spun around 180')...

    Anyone running P245 or P255-45-17 snow tires on stock rims ? Just wondering if they fit OK on the stock rims, or if I need to buy some 8inch rims.

    Outdoor weddings

    Well I just got back from Indy, where my old college roomate got married at his parents house. Long story short, freak of nature windstorm comes out of nowhere (seemed like a nice 10mph breeze), then BAM 4 trees come down within seconds. One tree flattens the reception tent squashing a few of...

    MGW Handle Questions

    For those that put the handle on with stock knob, what position did you adjust the telescoping handle piece to? I installed it low and to the left(maybe slightly back). Just doesn't feel right (knob is angled rearward too much, but still positioned too far fwd), somewhat disappointed based on...
