also if you are going for a form>function look the gt's are the way to go imo
but if you are looking for gorgeous rims the gsr1's are the obvious.

the advan's are very tuner esk and the forgelines are race car styled, again, just my opinion

Those look awesome!!! Only thing i suggest now would be to upgrade to the gxp rear brakes to help fill those wheels and match the f body front...

New wheels look great, Chris.
What's the weight on them? And how do you like the PS4S? I hear they're pretty good.

TBH I don't know the weight, just that they were expensive. Lost a lot of weight in the wallet.

The tires are really damn good so far. Haven't driven much but I have given it some spirited driving (took an employee out for a spin showing it off rounding corners and full throttle) and there was barely any wheelspin, surprisingly. I was able to really get some Gs going 0-80 a few times in a row without having them spin all through 1st and 2nd.

My Potenza RE11s lit right up smoking shifting from 2-3, and easily spun off the line going low speed in first. These things seem very grippy. They're supposed to be the best tire out there right now for the street.

Looking good! Gas door rust fixed? Looks like your need of some bigger brakes to fill in those rims!.. and an exhaust tip. lol. have any 1/4 times or anything yet? I assume that monster is tuned in pretty good.

Nope - part of the big body work session it will get once I determine the best body shop around here. Then I have to decide what color to go with... I was going to go with a little lighter blue.. but now I'm thinking gunmetal metallic gray...

I can't find any good 3" burnt titanium tips that don't get bigger. If I could get one that slides on and stays 3" that would be great.

Not really, I am not good at tuning. It runs, it moves well on E85, but it still absolutely needs a professional tune. I found the place to do it, I just want to have the new intake manifold and intercooler installed before I do it. Then it goes to the track, finally.

nice! What about mfullers car? Sad to see that creation coming apart... I like the metallic grey colors myself, not normally much a of a blue fan but I vote for current color choice. and +1 on your exhaust tip. Hope you can find one!
and you need those hvac lights swapped to blue I did on the white car, some blue LED 194s will solder right in.

See one on the road in this condition, they are still the best looking cars around. It's about the only car in recent years I'd want to re-build. Now if only Buick would bring back the Alero. Ahhh Buick Alero....not your father's Buick lol
