Pulling the RCJ's to get powdercoated, might as well burn off the rubber!

Hey all

in a rush attempt to get my RCJ's repowdercoated in time for a MIR drag rental on 2/18 I got to work tonight.

Thinking a simple bright silver or possibly a shadow chrome.

Borrowing Mscire's Kosei's in the meantime. The Vredestein's on the rear are now 3 years old and still have tread . They are a great tire, but do not have enough grip for my car. Would be a great tire for a N/A e36 I think.

Found a backroad and set about destroying the rest of the rears.





They take forever to start smoking, video below.







damage done!




Got home after a beer, swapped.








RCJ's stacked next to the 265/40/18 Mickey Thompsons that are going on after the wheels come back Can't wait to feel the traction!!





Need to find new centers for these caps.......wonder if I can powder them too. If yes, it opens more options away from silver.
