Finally got my rims......w/ pics!!!

So I finally got my rims and I just got done putting them on. Unfortunately I forgot to put the center caps on before i put all 4 rims on the car so I guess I'll just leave them off till I get my brakes and rotors replaced.










Before I put them on my car...






Putting them on my car....




End results.......







Tomorrow Im gonna put in my new speakers to replace to blown stock ones. Wish me luck!

Re: Finally got my rims......w/ pics!!!

that's gonna be my next project. unfortunately i don't have a disposable income so it was either get the rims first and deal with the large gap or lower it and ride on stock steeles all summer. I figured getting the rims first was the more cosmetically logical choice, especially since because of where I live, I will only have the rims on during the summer season.

That's nice, I think wheels make a car look twenty thousand times better. Do you like the Tenzos? Like, do you feel you got a good quality for a good price? I can't find good or bad info on the net about Tenzo.

Here's a chop for you.

well the way the center caps were designed they have to be attached from the back so that it wouldnt fall off. I didnt realize that till i put on all four rims and tried to put on the center caps after lol. I was too lazy to jack each side back up and unbolt all those lugs so i figured i would just wait till my brakes and rotors to come in and do it all together.

Im not sure how I would rate Tenzo's in comparison to other rims but to me they seem pretty good in quality. But then again I only had them on the car for a few hours so I can't really say. I got them from wheelsnext.com and they offered a warranty for a one time replacement for each wheel for up to 2 years. I paid $125 for the warranty. pretty good figuring each wheel cost $150 to replace. I'll let you know in the long run how Tenzo's run in quality.

I had a set of 17" Tenzo Sinko R's for 5 years or so. They help up good but the lips got a few small dents in them on the out side, insides were perfect. You don't have much of lip on those so i'm sure there gonna be fine. Alo the rims never chipped any clear or paint.
