You'd probably be better off just going to the dealer and buying one, I don't think it's gonna be real easy to find one wheel.

Yea mine is dinged up also, and I couldn't find one online anywhere. I found a place that sells all 4...but I cant find it now.

Dealer here wants 720$ for one rim. I may live with it or get another set of Tarmak II's in a diffrent color instead.

The situation with the BBS's is kind of funny. For $720/wheel you can certainly do a lot better than stock. I guess we'll be the only guys in town with winter wheels that are more expensive than our *nice* wheels.

Reminds me of the guy with the EG hatch who's STi is his "slow" car.

Yeah, but my guess is that the Firebird is a different kind of fast.

It's kind of interesting how the STi is out there in the middle. Some people seem to see it as a potential drag car, others as more of a track car.

I'm looking forward to seeing some evolutionary breadth.

Its an automatic, it's not really geared towards road course or autocross. But on the street it can hold it's own.

I think a lot of people take the F-body for granted based on it's earlier history, but the 4th Gen is just as much a track car as it is a drag racer.

I certainly didn't mean to slight the Firebird... and it's true that I don't know much about F-bodies. I'm guessing that you see some different potential in the STi though, or presumably you wouldn't have kept them both.

How do you get ran off the road?

I would've made him hit you, and let his insurance pay for your repairs instead of your wallet....
