No doubt, let's turn this into a black car thread!!!

Nick (topdowininfl) made the conversion. Black is back!

Nice pic's Taz, looks like you had a great trip. That IS a lot of driving, comfortable seats or not.

Thanks tampamark.
Those rims are my next mod and I'm looking for them now. Are those OEM or aftermarket? And where did you pick them up? What are the offsets? I'd like to keep the tires since they are so new and one really is. Grrrrrrrr.
I found some OEM for $400/ea. here.
Thanks.

That is not bad for OEM. Some guys have posted that you can pick up used M6 rims on ebay (OEM) for a great price with tires that are fairly worn. In that case just dump the tire.

I bought Miro M6 Replica rims, then I had my OEM tires taken off the Ellipsoid rims and put on to these. No issue for the last year. I don't know the offsets, but I am sure someone has those as the Miro's have been pretty popular. I bought these for $950 shipped from a guy on Fleabay. He was very good, they ran a bit long on leadtime so he knocked $50 off and sent them to me for $900 total.

He has a bunch on there now...

No problem with cracking but I don't drive on New York streets. Florida has nice roads. They are the best looking rim in my opinion.

Nice Taz! it look like you guys had a wonderful trip. But 86 hours? Not sure if I can handle that. I don't even want to drive 4 hours sometimes. Love the cars

Here are some pics at Niagara Falls with Yorgi's car.

BTW, The cow was too chicken to go over the falls.
Great pics Taz. I was lucky to meet up with Taz on the northern tip of his tour before he headed back south. We had a great talk over breakfast in Niagara Falls then headed over to Goat Island for a few pics. The island is a great vantage point for both sets of falls.

I feel privileged to have held the lucky cow!

Here is shot of the island:

Thanks for the info tampamark. I need to check and see if these OEM's are refurbished or new. It does sound like it might be too good to be true.

By the way, the Miro replica's were $900 for all 4, I figured you picked up on that but just clarifying that...

Your car will like them!

Thanks Yorgi. It was very nice meeting and chatting with you. BTW, I forgot to ask how you got your nick name.

I have a sneaking feeling that cow will now be an integral part of future trips.

Looks like you had a lot of seat time. Me & the wife are hoping to head up the east coast this year, to see the falls. Looks great!

Yorgi is a high school nick name, it's a variant of George. My name is George Richard Jr (father has the same name as me) so to avoid confusion around the house I've gone by Rick since I was a kid.
