Nice! With smaller/lighter rims and tires, do you feel that the car is little faster at take off?

Also, Punch and others- are you getting rust proofing done. I won't be driving my GT thru. the snow and salt this winter but was considering getting it done. But I hate the idea of having holes drilled in my new car to have it done. I am still not sure if it is good idea to get rust proofing done this winter. What are your opinions on this?

I just remembered that I have a set of old 15" pizza wheels that I can try out from my Omni, 15 x 6 on a 5 x 100 circle.

I am also looking at getting the car rust proofed but I think that I'll just end up with an undercoating. I hate it when they spray that stuff into the engine bay (does the engine bay really rust? not on any car that I've had). I'm trying to work a deal with Krown or Rust Check. They are willing to do it for around $100.

Punch, is the "16" on the above tire size a typo?

Thanks for the info, once again I must dust off the wallet, sometimes I wonder if it might just be cheaper to move to a no winter zone!!

Still frozen in Canada

The part numbers you posted are the right ones for the description, did you post the part numbers off your invoice from CT?
