Ok, so I realized late last week that the parts I needed to install my NOS Enkei wheels were most likely not going to get here in time. Actually, scratch that, they probably will get here in time, but I will not have the ability to install them. Fail.
Plan B. So, I decided to drive down to Delaware to see if I could borrow my brother's Rotas for the trip. Yeah, they are 13x8s and I'm not on coils, but I thought I could make it work. Installed and inspected. One bald tire on the outer edge started to worry me. Same tire had a plug, which made me uncomfortable. Driving at 55 and above gave me the shakes. Yeah, not going to drive on these wheels. Uninstall, swap back. Double fail.
Plan C. Tonight I drive up to my parents house. I plan on swapping my stockers for my other brother's RS replicas from his Mk2 G60. I know he just installed new all season tires last winter and they balanced out nicely. Start to loosen the lugs on one wheel. Stupid tire shop that installed the wheels for him after mounting over tightened the lug bolts, and from the feel of it may have read the axle nut torque specs instead of the lug bolts. I manage to split his lug bolt safety key while trying to loosen the second wheel's bolts. Triple fail.
Someone is telling me to drive on the stock 13s, so damn it, I guess I'm going to listen.
