well everyone...... i just picked up my new "custom" R/H C2's yesterday and then headed right over to the tire shop to have the TOYO T1S tires mounted and balanced. Now i am ready to roll once my celica gets outta the shop !!! (less than 7 days)
for all of the following i ended up paying.......
$720 -19" TOYO T1S tires ($360ea)
$1600 - R/H C2 evo rims
$45 per rim - metal polishing
$25 per rim - stripping (sandblasting)
$65 per rim - powdercoating
as far as the "whitewashing" of the tires.......
there is absolutely no tire shine or conditioner on the tires so they do seem to look pretty "washed" i guess you can say
i went through Portland powdercoating to get the stripping and coating done (good work, ****ty people to deal with.... go somewhere else !!) i would check out "precision powdercoating" they're in the book
"timothy's metal polishing" did the polishing of the lips - great guy !!
