They're just on there for a day or two. I just wanted to get pics on this and my red vert before they go on the GT.

looking good ken I like it.
It's a good thing your not keeping those wheels on the 4dr
because you would be hunting for some side skirts for the 4dr to uprade the grocery getter...:)

This is what it looked like with my other wheels on it. These are 185/60/14 with Falken tires.

This is what I run on it for the winter. These are 175/13's.

I've got this set too. These are 185/65/14's that were on the GT when I bought it.

But this is what the wheels look like on the car that they were intended for.
