That G8 moves out, that's my buddys vette, I ran it for a few passes that same night, got 3 passes back to back all 1.87 60 ft's at 11.91, 11.92, 11.97, best mph was 118. It's an ls3 automatic with vararam and corsa mufflers, we're anxious to get that thing tuned and get some bolt ons on it. Run's pretty well the way it sits now. The G8 leaves so damn hard it wants to get the tires off the ground!

I knew I should have went with those 17" CCWs you have on the back. The 16" I have don't have many DR[size] choices. Its nice to know that 295/50-17 DR fits.

Did you have to use any spacers with those 17" rims ??

No spacers... It doesnt seem like the rub or touch at all..... I have the ones you originally ordered right??? They didnt say I would need spacers or anything and it seems like they work good.... When I launch though I may be touching a hair but I need to look into that further....... if they do touch it only does for a second when I take off..... how are your 16" working out though? cant you get the tire you want?
