Finally mounted the SVT Rims
 
Hey guys,

So ive been talking about the SVT rims for a week now, I finally got them all cleaned up and mounted. Figured I' share a few pictures:

These were the shape of the rims when I purchsed them:

After about 1.5 hours on each wheel, which included washing, scrubbing with steel wool, polishing with a PC 7424 and Meguiars Ultimate Compund, then finishing with a wheel wax, these are the afters (oh yeah, also washed, compunded/polished and wax the body of the car too [bath])

Nice job, Jon, sweet looking ZX3, just needs a drop now.

def needss a droppppp

Haha....the drop is next on the list....probably going to go with the FRPP .8" drop...its a daily commuter for me so I still want some form of comfort and i think the 1.5" drop would be too much

I always thought SVT 5-spokes went really well with the SAP kit.

perfect addition, awesome bumper. are those common in canada? IIRC the package was named differently

Jonnotron 04-21-2013 08:28 PM

Thank guys.

And from my understanding Buick, its part of the 'Street Appearance Package' which I thought was available in the US? I have seen quite a few ZX3 and ZX4 with them in Ontario though....although nonoe with SVT rims :) lol
