    Hi Paul!

    Thanks! The car is on coil-overs in the front and rear drop springs (1.5" I believe).

    They are Circle Racing wheels. Fronts are 17 x 8 and Rears are 17 x 11.5, running a 245/45R17 and 315/35R17. A lot of people have asked about backspacing so I'll have to go and measure sometime this spring!

    Finally got mine painted. BuickBullet, I really like your wheels. They’re pretty pricey though , right?

    it sure be AWESOME for us all pro-touring cars to be in Bowling Green together for our 40th anniversary. I can have a show area just for the pro-touring cars only if you all commit. Sid Meyers is a personal friend from our local club and he said if we can have a commitment from X amount (which he didn't say how many) but that would be extremely kool to park all together. You guys have some super sweet rides.! Think about this, we can have a cruise night in BG one of the nights to go out and have dinner together and ride around from hotel to hotel.
    ps: you have a year to plan it and commit!

    Boy, it is a long drive from Oregon to Bowling Green, but a get-together of Pro-Touring Buicks sounds awesome! If this comes to pass, I might have to see if I can make the long drive!

    Yeah, unfortunately, they now are running for about $700 a rim, the prices have continued to go up while their availability dwindles.

    Thanks! They are Ridler 695: 18x9.5(265/40/18)rear 18x8(225/45/18)fronts.

    I’m very partial to white. Best color on these IMO!

    IMHO Wheels can make or break a car?
