Do you know what color it is? Like color code? Or exact color name?

Thanks MM. It's been a long winter and I have missed carving up the mountain highways around here. I still get the Bimmer out, but on winter roads I take it pretty easy. They also use gravel here for traction which is brutal for paint chips and glass so I am pretty careful what conditions I go out under.

This isn't California!!!

Here are some older pics of it. The first few are pre-corvette wheels. They were the wheels that came with the car when i bought it.


dsc_0021 by wolfsburgkid, on Flickr


dsc_0474 by wolfsburgkid, on Flickr

test fitting the corvette wheels and doing some spring swapping

dsc_1011 by wolfsburgkid, on Flickr


dsc_1017 by wolfsburgkid, on Flickr


dsc_1272 by wolfsburgkid, on Flickr

Pre-winter wheels back when it snowed in October haha


downsized_1029111400 by wolfsburgkid, on Flickr

Finally got new tires for the corvette wheels. so once i fix the clunking problem i'm having, i'll get them mounted, then i'll be putting them back on getting a long overdue alignment
