Re: New Wheel Reconmendations

I got my F14 from a corvette forum vendor (vibe motorsport). They were great to deal with. I was part of the big black friday order and I think forgestar took too many orders. My wheels got delayed once due to a QC issue with one of the 19s. I was happy they caught the issue and didn't ship. It did ...

Re: Tire issues

Yep! They seem to have some serious quality issues. The reason mine took so long (other than a lot of black Friday sales) was because the front 2 didn't pass quality control and they had to remake them. The tire guy said the 19 he had a hard time seating a tire on was slightly out of round though. I...

Re: Tire issues

Ted, a different guy got them on in 20 minutes this morning. He did use a little starter fluid I believe.

Dave, no stretching 305 on 19x11.

Steve, yes forgestar wheels. Harp just told me about Kristo and Dave's issue. That one wheel is slightly out of round.

Tire issues

So after almost 15 weeks I finally got my wheels yesterday. I got new tires last week. Today while I was at work my dad took them to the local discount tire to have them mounted and balanced. I went to pick them up and apparently they got 3 of the 4 done but are having a problem getting the tire to ...

WTB: Bridgestone re71r

Before I buy new I thought I'd see if anyone had any used for sale. I'm looking for 2 275/35r18 or 265/35r18 and 2 305/30r19.

Re: Tri-Cities Potential Spots

Kmart in Johnson City is closing soon (maybe it already has?) https://www.google.com/maps/@36.3520684 ... !1e3?hl=en
The lot looks big enough but it's been a while since I've been there so don't know the condition it is in.

Re: STM AT NATIONAL BMS EVENTS

I personally don't care if we have a class. It was nice to last year for the match tour since it was also a points event. Still, only 3 of us showed up and I don't think the turnout will be much different this year. I plan to just run the champ tour myself since I'm not sure if I can get the 3rd off...

Re: Tech workers

I wouldn't mind doing it. I have a couple times in the past and understand how to do it. The thing is I don't know how committed I will be this year. I know for sure I'll miss the next event. But, I will likely be at every Bristol event and could would have no problem getting there early.

Re: ETR#2 - Romancing the cone!!

While I registered, I will not be driving. I thought about it and need to get the kids' minor waivers done and will be bringing them and the kid kart for people to view/buy instead of driving the FR-S. But it sounds like it's going to be another big event! Boo! I registered stx just because I seen ...

Re: Codrive?

Thanks for the offers but as of about 4 hours ago I was notified I have to work Saturday. 60 hours a week plus a sick baby at home are all signs telling me to skip out on this first event. I may see if any are available for future events though. Or just use some of this overtime money to fix my clut...

Re: Codrive?

I'm looking to drive someone's car with them. I really don't care which class. I will likely run my car if nothing comes up. Just have to launch it easy.
