hey guys, this is the first time i've posted pictures of my car. I ve been a member for a while now, i think this site is awesome, it has always been so helpful when i'm working on my car. Anyway, i just picked up these used rims a couple weeks ago, there 17" eagle alloys, i think they look great, the tires are a little big but i'm gonna wait until they wear out and get some lower profile tires. I just washed up the car, what do ya think?

You're probably already aware, but your speedometer is going to be wrong with those tires.

A canadian meet would be an awesome idea, hopefully we could get

Rims look nice with those tips. I like the 7th gen in that campaign colour.

I would be interested in a southern Ontario meet.
