So, your going to rip off the dynomat you bought, and attempt to send it back, and buy cheap crap off ebay?

Dynomat is $$$ for a reason.

Tex, those wheels are just as common and popular as the TTII's, but it's for a reason. They look awesome. I had TTII's on my Camaro, LOVED the way they looked.. everyone has them, but I didn't care. They made me happy.

SPR, If you really want to spend big money get some Fikse's:



They make me happy in the pants, but they cost tons of money.

You do plan to lower the car, right? Give that heavy pig a nice suspension setup and make her handle as well as the looks.

I want to know what kind of job you have to be able to afford all this at what, aren't you 22 years old?

It's definitely looking good, and I want to see some pictures in the sun ASAP.

Well, for $1600 I got 17 x 8 Eagle 211's (same thing as a TTII but cheaper)

And BFGoodrich G-Force T/A KDWS's in a 245/45ZR17... those tires made my car handle amazingly just with a simple wheel swap.

I suggest a staggered offset of wheels, 8" wide in the front, 10-11" wide in the back. I'm drooling already.

Looks badass man... although your pictures are a little on the large size

Are you going to do anything about the fender or just leave it as is for the moment??

Heat gun and a careful bit of hammering should help it back. Repop sucks though.

Ignore Firebird's spam posts. He doesn't really give a rat's *** about the cost of the fender trim.
