New wheels for the G8

Youll have to excuse the night pictures till I can get some good day ones with out the flash. The flash makes the tires stand out real bad which isnt the case when looking at the car, the wheels blend with the tires.

They are OZ Ultraleggra wheels. The best part is they are light. The tire and wheel combo is 8 pounds lighter per corner then the stock setup.

It has a magnaflow catback right now. There will be a 93 tune and new intake that should put it over the 400hp mark soon.

Better keep those tires shined up...or those wheels will stand out in a bad way.

Car looks good.

The car has the L76 6.0L V8. Its pretty much an LS2 but it has cylinder deactivation to save on fuel.

Sadly the car is my fathers, Im just helping with the mods. Hes not a fan of tint so I doubt it will be getting any. Although I do agree that it needs some.

No backup camera in my tundra, its a pretty expensive option since you have to get nav with the screen to have it.

That is sick. How do you like the G8? I haven't seen many around here, but when I do, makes me second glance to make sure it isn't an M5 or something.

Needs some tire shine...That way the tires don't appear dirty.

I love me some G8 as well. From the looks of it, I will never have one though.
