      GM products do not belong on German cars. IMHO, they just don't look good. No offense all. TO each there own, that's what makes rides different I guess.

      Just wirewheeled the paint off of one of my C5's. Gunna hand sand it to a polish, Ill post pics when one of them is done.

      I can tell you already though these arent very fun rims to do a sand/polish on.

      Do the stock lugs fit the adapters, or do you need to buy lugs and adapters?
