Topic: GLCOAT update: NEW WHEELS!
The late 70's Oldsmobile Starfire 13"x5" steelies that it came with have finally been replaced with something worthy, a set of new DRAG DR36 17"x7.5" alloy wheels with 205/40ZR17 Falken Ziex ZE-512 tires. All eight wheels and tires, mounted, balanced, and shipped to my door with the tuner lug nuts: $1,498 from Discount Tire Direct. What a difference they make!!!
BTW, it was about 35 degrees and alternating between snow and rain while DC Doug and I worked on the car all afternoon yesterday. It took hours to bleed the brakes, but we got them bled, even though a caliper or two is still frozen, and the brake pedal needs some HD return springs.
We were supposed to get the new ignition system done yesterday too, but the weather and a funeral postponed it...
