It's so hard to not drive it, I understand.. A trailer is a great investment.

RT/10 Bought with 12,000 miles a year and a half ago. Outta commision for a LONG time due to winter and Arrow rebuild. Now has almost 15,000 on it.

GTS bought with 2,000 miles on it 8 months ago. It's got around 5,000 miles on it.

Damn winters.

8900 miles unfortunately and half of those were probably standing still. /images/graemlins/laughing.gif


BIRVINI, hate to hear about the rebuild, but I am glad you have another one to drive. /images/graemlins/gr_driving3.gif

chuck,

Makaha, you are so right! i was concerned about miles before i sent it off, now, i dont even think twice. i drive to enjoy it, and i wish i had this mindset back when she was stock, i would have enjoyed her even more

redsnake, I've thought about this for a long long time....do I put miles on my viper or lock it up and drive it once a year....I've come to conclude that I'll drive it when it's nice out and I'll enjoy it...it is the very reason you buy the car,..to enjoy it. so, I'll enjoy it. redsnake, wher are your factory wheels...would you consider selling them?

well i would definately do HREs obviously. the style is up to you. i just really like the 5 spoke (545 and 547). i have stoptechs so i think this gives the best view of the caliper and rotor... it is poserish, but oh well, what isnt :doh:? basically it comes down to what you like as far as style, but the 540, 545, 546, and 547 HREs are the most popular and all look fucking awesome!
