    Ok thanks, I will send email tomorrow.

    For those of you who wanted titanium: Ichpen on the LS1Tech forums was just notified that titanium is now available. I assume that the $40 charge for their multi-layer powdercoating still applies.

    Yep, confirmed. He didn't say anything about a $40 charge.

    EDIT: Just ordered Titanium.

    I may be in for a set of titanium as well. What is the max tire size that we can fit on the rear? I really want to be able to run a 295. Thanks for the info.

    Recommended maximum width tire on a 10" rim is 285mm. 275mm is optimal.

    I'm no tire expert but I thought 285s were optimal for 10".


    I'm thinking 295s actually but not sure about rubbing.

    275 is optimal because the 275/35-19 is the closest size (diameter, etc) to the OEM size. 245/40-19 is optimal for the front.

    Oh I meant optimal for the rim not the speedo (can adjust the speedometer) I need to throw as much rubber on as I can on those.

    I don't think so. If anyone is anal about going too wide for a rim, its me.

    But my widened rear V1 rims were 9.25" and had 275s.
    Stock V2 wheels are 285 on 9.5" rims.

    10" rims should reasonably take a 295 and even a 305 tire.

    I emailed Peter (this one went through, but haven't received answer) and left them a message on their answering machine. I'll be ordering the Platinum for my Silver V.

    I considered gun metal for a sec, but I don't know how well the finish will wear, and dark rims make the wheels look smaller. Poop to that.


    Does anyone have any pics of a 275, 285, 295 on a V? Post that $hit please. I'm guessing we'd need the Noodle trailing arms for that?

    My 275/40 18 PS2s on 9.25" wheels fit just fine. Don't think I have any pics, though...

    I have the 10" wide Linea Corse wheels from Wheeldude on the rear of mine with Continental Extreme Contact DWS 295/30zr19 tires and they work great. The car is lowered about 1" too. I think the shorter sidewall keeps them from rubbing. I did have a slight rub of the wheel on the trailing arm under extremely hard right turns, but one tiny touch with a grinder on the trailing arm and it's gone (gonna order Noodle trailing arms soon).

    Good to hear. I think I'll be opting for 295s.

    305s is asking for trouble.

    I put in an order for GOLD!

    You guys are going to hate until you see it on the car. I think they are going to look mean.
