ZCP FTW!!!

Not really a ZCP thread, more of a weather thread, but I'm super stoked to get my ZCP summer wheels/tires on. I bought my car last November, so this is my first real chance to get to drive with summer tires and the engine broken in!

The ZCP wheels are just soooo sexy. The offset on my "Sport Edition" winter wheels was really low and they made the car look more pedestrian. Next up... Need to get my windows tinted.

I know tinting is a little "High" School, but I just think it sets the car off. I don't usually go too dark, 35ish.

I'm jealous. Not sure when I'll get to the track for the first time this year. I want to have 3000 miles first, per the owner's manual.

I know the feeling ... changed my winter setup to my summer wheels yesterday .. neighbours came over and admired the wheels. I will be selling my winter setup this year for I never will change them again

You can buy "J" type hangers at Home Depot and they come with wall anchors. Very easy.

I know what you are saying, but just a point of correction:

What you meant to say is that your winter wheels had a HIGH offset, not a low offset.

Yeah, P Zeros. Not sure why, perhaps its an e90 vs e92 thing? I wonder which tires are better? Either way, I'm sure they won't last long

A friend of mine that works in metal fabrication welded them up for me. basically two brackets that mount to the studs with large bolts and 1" pipe wlded to them. They are stainless steel.

PM me if you are interestd, I can see what he'd charge to make a set.

Yeah, my neighbours have accused me of jinxing our beautiful (and early) spring. Normally I don't put them on until April, but the weather in WI has been super natural. Best late winter on record, 75degrees F yesterday!!!!!!!
