Oh well, the HRE will be here next week. Turkey, dressing, sweet potatoe pie, and rims....that's a little too much for ones eyes.

Only one problem....I wasn't there to sign for them!

Last week would have been perfect since I was off. I now need to take off from work early enough to sign for them or just wait until I'm off. I think I'll just wait.

Madcurl...you are a horrible influence.

I've had my Fiero for less than a week, and in the span of a half an hour,

you've already got me wanting to spend all my cash on this thing.

Haha, absolutely beautiful car.

And its great, because your silver chop, #11 was it?, looks almost identical to mine...just a little bit shorter.

Ahh to dream.

Yes, I've heard that from others too, hehe.

BTW, The blackened 547 DUBs arrived last week and boy those suckers look great on #015. I nearly fainted, hehe. The polished lips are blinding! Pics in a few minutes.

How many guys does it take to mount a 345/25/20? One, two, or three guys? Geezs, after seeing them lobe-up the rim, you'd think they'd gang raped my rim.

Backside views and things; HRE 20x12 with stainless steel fastners and fully polished/clear coated inner barrels.



Stainlees steel fasteners and hardware: Notice the nearly unnoticable valve stem caps on front views. After many thieves stealing my caps over the yrs...they now have to look very, very hard for them!


Backside polished/clear coated (I've learned my lesson over the yrs...painted centers/clear coated inners = less elbow work

Notice the amount of weight reduction by the triangular cut-outs on the backside mounting surface.

Test Fit: Even though Vince (HRE) and I went of the specs 1,000xs, we're still not 100% correct until the rim is on the vehical. According to HRE, if you mount them (tire and rim), you own them!

Yeah, the darn rims were too phat for the scale being used so I had to use two metal rods (@ each end) to hold it onto the scale. I'll weigh both the tire and rim later, but here are a few tire/rim weights.

This is a 18x7 3-piece Niche Pultec (non chrome) painted center aluminum rim wrapped by a 225/40/18 Toyo @ 44.5 pounds.



Old fronts prior to change. 18x8.5

23 Pounder: I need to go back and weigh both the tire and rim.




#011

235/35/19 on a 19x8.

P/Rosso: 345/25/20

Originally purchased and stored: June 04.




Finally, I'm ready to move forward!


Isn't strange how a old idea (from a old thread) is being finalized; aided by Troy and Leroy.

The 20x11 Thread (11/4/2003): would it work?
//www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/035277.html


The Redux thread (11/14/2004): Semi wide, but not wide enough, but lead to #015 being made. The making of a homebrew widebody. //www.fiero.nl/forum/F...1/HTML/037188-3.html


Who'd knew we'd have a widebody kit years later? Widebody kit thread: 2/16/2007 //www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/064001.html

After 5- guys molesting the 547 with enough lube to grease a 800 pound gorilla, I was ready to blow steam!


This is me leaving Big John's w/o the tires being mounted. Didn't I mentined that this was round II? Round I was the first shop the day earlier. It's all good. I got my work car's wheels alighned and I called HRE and they said if I F1 Motorsport can't mount the tires...they will mount them for me free of charge.

On last Wednesday I headed out to F1MotorSports in North Hollywood better known as "Wheel paradise" and I was in heaven, hehe. Lots of pics of DUBs on Ferraris, Mercedes, and BMW.

DUBs inside the convertable to F1:

It took me nearly 20-30 minutes for the tires to be mounted, during which I took many pics of items I thought were a good modifications for a choptop Fiero.

Well...yes. I thought since I was going to North Hollywood were the Celebs hang out, one would think they had some type of unique machine to mount the DUBs.....I guess not. Oh well, but it looks stupid too me. What tha!!!


As one dude stands on the rubber another guy lubes the barrels. These yellow clamps prevent damage to the outer lip.



The black clamp use used to aid in clamping a section of the tire; thus preventing the lip from popping out while the tire is being rotatated. Prior two shops didn't have such a tool.


Once the 345 is on, now comes the hard part; moving the outter rubber towards the outter rim lip. This is difficult due to the R-series barrel design.


The use of high pressure air to "pop" the outer rubber lip towards the outer rim lip....almost there.



They will use the tire separator (a.k.a the Claw) to push the outter tire lip.

Time out: While the crew was mounting the tires, I decided to take another view of the F430 rear deck vents: Hmm?



F430 front side vents...nice!


I like how the rear side window flares upward.

I do believe I purchased a set of these talilamps, hehe. I wonder if they would work on a widebody notchback?

Distractions continued: Oh my, my, my...it's those Mayas!

A very, very nice rim and was one of my choices some time ago. I'm glad I didn't purchase them now, especially after talking one of the sells persons. Although a 3-piece rim, the section is welded and sealed together making a damage rim very expensive to fit. Granted, I didn't weigh the rim , but I did lift one and they're heavy.

It seems to be the general Hollywood style now. Rims that are blackened out....yeah, that Batman theme.
