Default Scored a set of wheels today!

Got a set of C5 wheels with Goodyear F1 tires. About 3/4 tread left, absolutely no curb rash of peeling of the finish. Going to put them on my '94 vert and save the Torque Thrust wheels for the next Vette.

Those aren't wagon wheels...

They almost look like the magnesium wheels that were a little champaign colored.

I think they were referred to as Y2K wheels. The mag wheels had smaller center caps. (I think...)

Good buy for 4 nice wheels & tires.

Nice score!

I have mini seizures when I see wheel weights put on the outer lip of a wheel.

Nice! I still have the stock Saw Blades on the LT4. Want to get ZR1 wheels eventually.

They look like 2003 Anniversary edition wheels.

Screaming deal. I'd use some of the money saved to get a road balance and get rid of the rim weights, swapped for adhesive weights on the interior

Those wheels with no rash are like finding a diamond in the middle of the street.
