    Well the F14s only come in the one size. 19x9 front and 19x 10 rear. I ordered mine directly through peter at forgestar.

    I know, its filthy. Lots of airborn dust around here.

    unless ive missed some updates i dont believe that to be the case...afaik this was a one off run specifically for our 6 lug bolt patter and offset for our cars. ive been wrong before though...

    Price was 1560 plus shipping which was pocket change

    I think I like the lighter gunmetal just because it's not too different to the chrome grill. You know what I mean, it blends in decently. But $100 ea is quite a saving compared.

    On a side note, those who have gunmetal f14s...what lug nuts are you using?? Has anyone attempted to color match lugnuts? Is it possible, seeings how they can't be strung up for baking.
    And at that, has anyone considered color matching their grill?

    It's hard to recommend tires without knowing how, when, and where you plan on driving. For Y-rated summer tires with great wet traction, I heartily recommend the Hankook Ventus V12.

    I have the Hankooks referenced based on Fuzzy's recommendation and prior experience. They have been great. If I were buying now I would strongly consider the Sumitomo HTR ZIII. Tire Rack test data looks good and I have heard positive feedback from users.
