I had planned on getting mine from this place, they seemed to be the cheapest I've found anywhere on the net.

I bought them locally as i could not find a good price over the internet in Canada, i had to pay a bit more but the service was worth it. I think i paid total of just over $2000 to get the rims and tires as well as 2 sets of lugnuts as i found out yesterday its not a stock rear end in it therefore they couldnt get them to match all the way around (thats fine though as two different sets of locking lugnuts will stop thieves.) That price also included mounting and balancing.

The car looks awesome man.  Now I can't wait to actually get stuff going on mine and get my wheels.  Are you going to do the suspension at all?

Very cool TA man. That thing looks mean. Now you need to update you signature pictures. I plan on going with the gunmetal ones.

Yeah I almost bought the gunmetal ones at Spring Carlisle last year.  Those are the wheels I am going with when I get around to actually working on the car again.

Nice choice on the wheels and tires!  Your T/A has taken on a whole new look

Thanks i think it looks a lot more agressive now, when are we going to do that cruise up to Hope?
Also decided against pulling the muffler off, gonna look around for a decent set of headers and a flowmaster exhaust
