Default New Wheels

I mentioned in my FedEx thread, that I ordered wheels for the Coupe. After almost 16 years on chrome 5 spokes, it needed a change. Deep dish 5 spokes, powder coated black, then face and lip machined, then clear coated.

Those wheels look great! It's amazing how good the C5 still looks after all these years.

It had been up on the quick-jack for the day, it will settle down a bit once I drive it a bit.

Timeless design. Will be a classic, just like the mid-years.
