Any one want to trade aftermarket rims for Original Firehawks ?

Straight across trade wanted. If I see something that Im attracted to and you want my Firehawks, then were in business. Prefer Gun metal or two tone (gun & silver) or dull silver. No black, no chrome. Staggered ok too.

I feel you. It's all about timing. I'm really not hopeful to make a trade but I just thought I put it out there in case somebody has something.

Kind of. I like the Avant Garde M590 spoke shape ideally.

Those are cheap one piece cast wheels, like VMR. Most likely made in China. You can get all 4 for less than the cost of one forged 3 piece wheel. If you like them, buy them and list your SLP's for sale.

Ya, I dont want to sell then wait... I just want a even trade. If not, then no harm. My favorite rims are from UK, cant get them here. MMR's are nice too.

Yeah Im very happy with them at the end of the day. The wallet was not so happy though.

PVD black chrome coated Camaro wheels. I also plan on turning the car stealth gray so they will look even better!

Firehawk wheels

I own a 2009 firehawk and would pay you a fair cash price for wheels

hahah I've contemplated inverting the color scheme on mine once the finish wears out. Mine has the dealer option rally stripes. I want to invert to matte black with glossy red stripes ... would be quite a project though. Let me know how your repaint goes, and how much it costed


and yeah.. those wheels look gr8. I like the stock ones but if I could switch it would be those!

Well, shoot. Let me think about that one. If I sell, it can be pricey. Shipping costs plus what I feel they are worth. Thats why I wanted to trade, No sales tax, etc....As you know, No where else to buy a full set.

If I find a new rim style that I like, I will get back with you .

With the crazy price of paint these days, I decided to go with the plasti-dip route. When done professionally, it looks as good, if not better than regular paint, without the "classic shine" of course. Great option when you want to do matte, and much lower maintenance.

The quoted price in my area is about 1000$ for the whole car.

I attached a picture of what I have in mind.
