New wheels have finally arrived...



Ordered July 1, arrived October 13. Whatever, they finally got here. All 19" with the fronts being 9.5" wide and the rear 11" wide.



I weighed the wheels and this is what I found. The fronts, despite being a 1/2" wider and an inch in diameter greater, weight less than the OEM wheels by 0.7 lbs. The rear wheel, while 1.5" wider and 1 in diameter great, only weigh 0.4 lbs heavier than the OEM rear. It's the new tires that are heavier. 


So Thursday morning we'll be at Gran Turismo East when the doors open at 8 AM and they will install the Eibach springs, the Renick sway bars, mount some new Michelin PS4S tires on these wheels and give it the track alignment. Ready. 

I may go ahead and do the catless downpipes and that may be it for now.

    • The Euro has the ULL 10 mb stronger than the GFS, but the GFS has started to trend in the Euro direction. Euro   GFS   GFS Trend from previous run  
    • The current upper level low. https://whirlwind.aos.wisc.edu/~wxp/goes16/grb/meso_wvc/meso2_30.html
    • Here are the latest GFS/Euro operational and ensembles. Euro Euro Ensemble   Euro Ensemble Control   GFS   GFS Ensemble
    • I liked the looks earlier in the week for sure.  I don’t like counting on elevation for accumulation.  That means a miss for most of N Ga.  Cold and cloudy is just dreary.  Flakes falling makes it much more exciting
    • I would say, if I was on the other side of the ridgeline I'd like it a lot more. This is certainly a better look than a lot of our other modeled back side snows, with a surface low potentially forming in the southern Apps somewhere. But living on this side of the Mtns I'm always skeptical of anything with a NW flow component to it. But a quick inch or so Monday evening in places like Suches, Blue Ridge, Blairsville, etc. wouldn't surprise me with that look. I'll take my flurries and be happy lol
