Default Baby Got Some New Shoes

Even my grandkids aren't babies any more, so I bought this one some new wheels and tires.
Set of Continental Extreme Contacts and Forgeline F01 wheels.
Very happy with the change and rides nice.

I'm not liking those wheels, and I can't explain why. But, my opinions don't matter. If you enjoy the wheels, that's all that matters.

When I looked at the first photo, I wasn't liking them much but I love the way they look in the 3/4 shot. The details really pop.

I run the Conti's on my Z, love them. Now you just need to drop that down on the stock bolts.

Yup. It makes a huge difference in the stance. First thing I did to mine.

Nah, I did that on the '14, didn't like it too much. Took away my upper part of my low beam light, shortened my sight distance on the road.
And the ride was just a little stiffer.

I've learned not to mess with the engine or suspension, have way more power than I'll ever need, but it's nice to know it's there.
