What size tire are you guys running in the front?
I just took a peek, & the front tires are 275/35/zr20

Not sure how I feel about the widebody, may look better with correct offset on front wheels, that's killing the look of the car for me. I like the color and the install though...

i would do a wheel with as thick a hub as i could to reduce some of the deep dish look. the fronts look like they need a full inch correction with new front/rear barrels. good job otherwise

Yeah i'll have to see it in person as well. We were told to make the wheels with a 1.5" larger frontspacing over a std GTR, so that's what we did...looks like it should have been more like 1" wider than stock.

Very nice! What happened to that black Camaro in the 2nd shot? It's missing the wheels and seems to be on the rotors?

From your pic, it looks a little off.
Fitment was ok... Still nothing like OEM but acceptable IMO.

Nothing... It's getting wheels refinished and it's up on jack stands.

I like the color. Front end looks like it blends well but the back fenders look kinda curvy for the otherwise edgy GTR. I'd have to reserve final judgment until I saw it in person.

Hmmm, there are not many fans on that website, but hey... It's the internet. It's easy to be negative, cause it makes you feel cool & better about yourself.

Interesting... Almost everyone at C&C liked it but other GTR owners don't like it? They all pile on top of each other on the hate train. That's odd. Oh well, they fail to realize it's just a toy and nothing more. It's not a show car, an exotic or anything of the sort. Just another DD for him to have fun in. Thanks for posting the link though.

It's going in to Jotech this week to be lowered and the front wheels will be redone soon as well.

yeah, I noticed that, too. Ppl have different taste than just being negative to make themselves feel cool and better about themsleves though. I'm sure the pictures will not justify the looks at all. I loved the paint job and the unique idea.

I wish I was at CnC to check it out in person. I'm sure it looks alot better in person. Once u lower it, it will just look better for sure. Once my car is done, we should go for cruising together in Mexico!

Sure thing, we can hit up Mexico anytime... And yes I think those pics do the car no justice. It must be seen in person to really be appreciated.
