Reckon you can take a pic of the Bathurst decal? I feel like getting it redone :x

Mine is faded at the top.



And I thought I would throw up a picture of my previous car (S600) for anyone that is interested. It now lives with a collector in Japan.

Hawt, I like classic cars. They have a lot of character that a lot of new cars these days don't have.

I ended up driving to Rocklea to pick up my wheels. When I unwrapped them, I couldnt stop grinning! ! Only the two pictures, getting new tyres tomorrow, so hopefully they will be on the car by the weekend.

Work Meister S1 2P
17 x 8 +35
17 x 9 +35

New tyres will be
Federal SS-595 215/40/R17
Federal SS-595 235/40/R17





Ps. They need a good clean and polish!

Looks pretty sweet, thought about putting wider tyres at the rear? I just like the look of phat tyres at the rear, looks tough somehow. I have the same Federal tyres but 255s at the rear. Just be careful in the wet with those.

The current tyres on there are 255/40 and 235/45 (unknown brand with about 60% tread). The main reason for going to the 235 was to try and keep the speedo reading correct as possible, and hopefully the slight tyre stretch would avoid having to roll the guards once it's lowered (if i go down that path)? Thanks for the warning! I have heard some pretty good things about the federal tyres so I thought I would give them a shot.

I'd suggest going wider than 235 on the rear, unless you want the stretched tyre look?

I finally got the wheels on the car. I'm really happy with how they look on the car, and feel on the road.

Edit: Hmm, looks like the quality of the images has been lost when I resized them. I will try again later tonight.

looks great, nice choice. How do you find the 595's? I have been pretty impressed so far with mine.
