Chuck beautiful car! My wallet just told me that when it grows up it wants to be just like yours

By the way are you running spacers on the rear(Of the car that is)?

Hey Jason,

Thanks, I think the wheels look awesome on yours as well!!
In fact, some day when my wallet grows back up, I want to do the C llls on my Silver OB as well! Until then, I'd say the GTS put my wallet back into puberty!!!

Jason, nice choice on wheels. Amazing the difference!

Thanks for all the info guys. So just to clarify, the front wheels don't rub on the guards under hard cornering? The reason I ask - in these images the tires look very close to the front guards! Just after that last bit of reassurance.....!
Cheers List,
Tom
