^ Was $5/tire cheaper than what I paid today.   Labor to install makes me want a tire machine/balancer.

Capley on Dickerson is who I have been using.  I think there is anothe shop named Valleys somewhere else in Nashville.

I went, showed him the damage and he quoted under $80. That's with adding a rock chip repair, and a couple other non-related things (see below).

Went to Serra Chevy dealership body shop, the guy quoted over $1k for the rock chip talking about he'd have to repaint the whole pillar over the DS window, another over $1k for the front bumper deep scratch, buff and polish rear bumper $?, etc. Then he told me the paint wouldn't match perfectly, that they can't get plastic to match the metal painted areas.  :rofl:

Dealerships are for fools! :shake:

Onlinetires.com was where I used to buy my rubbers.

When I had 17x11's out back on the Z28 I ran Nitto 555r and I could get them from onlinetires.com for $175 a tire for 315/35/17 size tires.

I did go to the one on Dickerson rod.... :up:

He's actually cheap. I figured he'd want a lot more than what he quoted.

The Serra shop, good lord. They're taking folks for a ride. :lol:

Man anything wrong with the car. Sounds like a good price.

IDK...

I just came across it and thought it was a steal given the miles and mods.

Heck, I pad $24k for mine with 16k miles and only a Corsa catback and shitty Vararam heat sucker.

I'd take that black one in a heartbeat!

It would run you over $7k to put that ProCharger on a 5th gen yourself. All those other mods would add lots of $$$$.

Excuse the dirty. Freezing temps inhibit cleanliness.

How is the cold start on E85?

When it’s in the 20F’s it’s a lot more choppy.

Sucky vid in to sun light...

Wow... That's a good start.

You should hear it in 20F-ish temps.. It's like I have a stage 4 cam and it chops longer than that. :lol:
