    Wheels and tires.....

    I am always messing with wheel and tire combinations..so here i go again. Found these gm ZQ8 wheels that i have always liked but just hard to find factory GM ones at a affordable price. Test fit Looks promising so i ordered some new tires and lugnuts. I will post a picture when i get them all mounted.
