These are the wheels I have coming for my Z06:

Forgeline VX1 in Black Chrome

Effing Baller, looks damn nice!!
Make sure you are there when they are mounted and installed, as I always let them know any effups will cost them.

Yep. When I got new tires I went into the shop and observed the entire time.

Sign on the door said "no customers beyond this point" but no one said shit to me. Seems like that only happens on the internet. LOL.

I would have asked for your autograph and your chili recipe. They tire guys missed an opportunity.

For the FL compound. Bets on how long it'll take the kids to put a hurtin' on this?

Pretty cool table that is fairly well reviewed though.

Correct it replaced my 2020 M240i (I get rid of them when the warranty is up)

This one is a redesign though as the M2 is no more, so it inherits all the parts (and hp/tq numbers also).

Same thing happened when the 1 Series M went away, my 135is inherited all its goodies, too.

Sport display is fun.

Still waiting on the 3rd video card and the M.2 4TB drive. Can't start the rebuild without the drive.

I'm guessing they were heterosexuals, so they were good with not. But hey, you do you!

Thankfully it will come fully assembled and on a pallet so I can just pick it up with my tractor and move it to the back patio

Milwaukee Battery powered weed whacker. My son's bought me a Milwaukee battery powered ratchet for Christmas last year and it's been great.

I went to start my 20 year old Craftsman weed whacker this year and the pull string broke for the 5th time. I started to take it apart and got frustrated that I've have to do this many time in the past few years. About half way through taking it apart to fix I said **** it, threw it in the trash and went to Ace Hardware and picked this baby up.

M18 and lasted my full yard on a full charge including edging my sidewalks. Bonus is it came with a dual charger that can do the M18 battery for the trimmer and the M12 battery that came with the ratchet. This unit also has different attachments from a pole saw to a bristle brush.
