Wheels for the Mach 1 have been ordered....

Matte Black FR500 Style Wheels, 18x10
Matte Black FR500 Style Wheels, 18x9

Once they show up I can see about finding a different center cap for them (need to verify opening size).

I'm hoping I can use the classic tri-bar pony setup with the black background - but not sure if it will will fit this wheel.

its a little weird at first. Have to tilt the tire a little bit to get it to slide on the studs. But i'm used to it now.

Yeah -Always liked the look of them.

Before they get mounted I'll do some other 'basic' things. Once it's registered I'll setup an appointment to get the windows tinted.
