50/50

My wheels were expected to be in today, so made the appointment to have the springs/struts and new wheels/tires put on today... Not that I was really surprised, the wheels didn't make it in, but the lowering is done :)
Next week I guess for the wheels...

Lookin good! I remember the first time I saw my Cougar lowered. Such a happy day!



Funny thing is. Ive got my rear jacked up all the way (GC's) and the car looks like a 4x4, I swear its higher than stock.

RE:50/50

I can't go as far as Indy this year... maybe next year... but I'll keep my eye on you ;)
Since they were such a freakin hassle to get, I'm really paranoid about damaging one and needing to replace it! I wish now that I would have bought 5 up front!

RE: 50/50

Ironically, right after I say I think I should have ordered an extra wheel, I go outside to wipe the tire-guy fingerprints off them and notice one wheel has some pretty significant scratches/dings. (the other three wheels are totally spotless).
I'm going to tell them tomorrow about it, but what would you suggest for offering to buy the damaged on?
Attached are a couple pix to show the scratches.

Yeah, when I went in and showed them the scratches, they said "yep, looks like you need a new one!". When the replacement comes in, I'll see what they say about me keeping the extra.
