    C5 Corvette wheel day!

    I had a client drop ship me his new CCW's for his C5 'vert. Has CCW's on it now powder coated black and he is wanting to change the look up.


    He went from a 19"-20" setup to 18"'s all the way around. Car looks very good with the new hoops on!


    I also adjusted the coil overs to level out the ride and it is sitting pretty now!

    Looks sick! Black wheels always just remind me of spare tires lol if there all black, need a little contrast!

    Much better! Black wheels are weird looking on a Corvette.
