Flybigrc Thanks for the tip. Much appreciated. I wish spring would get here, can't do much to the car in the cold!

RonMaiden I think it was the Dupli-color brush on kit but definetly avoid using the supplied brush which is utter crap and use a smaller quality brush.

Flybigrc I noticed that you calipers were red. They look good! Did you paint them and what product did you use? Dubro? I want to paint mine blue to match the car. Definatley sucks about the rims, I am amazed they discountinued those, they are really nice wheels.

rambleon84 Have you checked out the buy/sell section here yet? Several sets up for sale, a couple I'd be interested if i was in the market

RonMaiden I unfortunatly have had an issue with one of the wheels and found out the gunmetal color is discontinued and the wheel was covered by the warranty but didn't disclose anything about a "what if" popped up. Fortunatly Discount stepped up and will give me a new set of wheels in place of the Drag 19s. My wife doesn't want black 19s and the silver is too silver for me which is why i hate giving up the GM color so it looks like I'll be swapping over to the Drag 34s which the black color didn't bother my wife with this style so looks like it's a go.

RonMaiden The price diff from 16" to 17" isn't that much so do some research on your tire prices. 16"s were too small for my taste. Check out the Drag 34s which has further spaced and less spokes which I might be switching to.

Thanks for the reference Fly but I personally haven't found any aftermarket 16" wheels that I like, all the ones I have found are 17s. I'd rather not go 17s so that I can save a little money when it comes to tire replacements.

I've decided to keep my eye out for some factory wheels and hopefully a set will come up that I like in my price range.

A bit Pricey
