Looking good. It's a little bit big though.

Anyways, are those the 547 HRE's? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_confused.gif

What method did you use to lower the Z? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_confused.gif

Thanks

Thanks guys! No, those are HRE 545's. I lowered the car by purchasing longer bolts for the rear, and tightening the front, and also removing the bushings. I'm actually not content with the front, so I'll probably remove the front adjuster bolts completely.

Awesome!!!! I love the 545's.. My 02 quicksilver is due 2cd week of Aug. and I ordered my HRE 545's June 20th. What are my chances of getting them in 7 weeks??? How long did it take for you to get your wheels? Are those 18x9.5 and 19x10.5 and what tire brand and size did you choose. I originally order Pzeros but changed because of the back order problems. Again, congrats, your look spectacular!!! I am also considering lowering my car. Any feedback??? Thanks Nick

Thanks Xmuni! IMO, your chances of getting them in 7 weeks is good. Mine's took 10 weeks(worth the wait), and were suppose to be completed in 5 weeks. Like you, I also ordered the wheels prior to purchasing the car. Yes, those are 18x9.5 and 19x10.5 fully polished w/clear coat. Originally, I ordered the p-zero's as well, but found out that the 295/30/19 rear tires were on back order for 2 months! I then desperately looked around and found a set down in Southeren Ca. Although there was a price to pay for these($400 each), I knew that p-zeros were the only one's that I wanted. If you still have time to change your mind about getting p-zeros, a place called Grand Prix Performance might still have an extra set of tires for the rear. Their number is (949)645-7702 and ask for Jerry. As far as lowering goes, I bought the longer bolts for the rear. Upfront, I tightened the bolts and removed the bushings. Bilstien Shocks are utilized as well. I am not happy with the front end of the car, so I will most likely remove the adjuster bolts completely. A special thank you goes out to Bwhitmore for ordering his 545's 1st. If it wasn't for him, I would probably never order mine's. The size of these wheels/tires look and match perfectly for the Z06. The picture just doesn't do any justice! Again, thanks Bwhitmore!! Xmuni, good luck to you and your car!!
