Default WhitEVOMr's Lexus GS300 New Wheels = New Beginning

Today was a very happy day in the life of Daniel Chi, AKA WhitEVOMr/ChargeSpeedEVOMr. After nearly 4 months of waiting he finally received his Work Meister S1's.

Follow along as we take a trip with Daniel and his quest for a new look and a new direction for his car. Note* This is my first outing with my Nikon D40 and attempting rolling shots as well as night shots. So, please be gentle with your replies! Any constructive criticism will be greatly appreciated!

This is what happy Daniel looks like when he got to my house this morning to roll out with us to Butler Tire in Alpharetta, GA.

Kenny was driver #2 today and helped lug the new rims to the shop and the old wheels and tires back to Daniel's house.

Daniel's car was put in the bay almost immediately! We decided to get new tires, adjust all 4 corners for .5 inches lower than he already was and got an alignment done as well!

We then left to hit up a local HID and LED distributor to grab some lights for Kenny and Daniel's brother, Josh.

Very nice ride and new wheels! Even the picture post kept us in suspense. Great picture taking skills too CarbonGS.


FYI When I first saw your Screen Name I seriously thought it was "Car Bongs"

Nice wheels! I wish the S1's came with some kind of centercap though. You see a clean polished wheel and then in the middle there's a hole exposing the rusty hub. With that 265 in the rear you can probably fit some spacers too. I love how step lipped wheels look when they're rolling.

yea I definitely need something to cover up that nasty rusty hub! and yes they are ok for now i guess but not as aggressive as I wanted them to be. I will be adding a 10mm spacer soon
