Hey guys!
Just wanted to pass this along; I found a tire place that can mount & balance high performance tires/rims without damage. They will put weights on the backside out of view and guarantee no scratches, marks, or dings to the rim. They were very accomodating & knowledgeable. They mounted the tires on my new rims:



The place is called:

K.O. Tire Company
150 Seegers Ave
Elk Grove Village
847-439-6986

They are right by Rt 72 (Higgins) Rt 83 (Busse). It's run by two brothers; Dave & Kevin.

love it!

Stealth - not too much bling but still says "watch out". Looks perfect. Will we see her at the Lombard cruise on 6/16?

Thanks! I will be at the June 16 cruise.

Paul,
The long grass is actually my neighbor's. If you look closely at the grass on the other side of the driveway, it's neatly trimed! When I downloaded the pics I noticed the long looking grass but I figured nobody else would.....

Car looks great
Sure, use the old "Blame it on the guy next door" trick. I like it.

Hope to make it to Lombard, but I work in Crystal Lake until 5PM.
So we will see.
