Big thanks to Gary at Tirerack

Well, the ordeal is over... thanks to Gary! He was great in helping me while I was trying to figure out how to deal with my immediate need for tires when the rear wheels I wanted were backordered til next year.

So, I finally ordered the ASA AR1s in 18x8 all around with Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3s...225s on the front and 245s on the rears...so I can swap the 245 rubber to the 18x9 rears when they come in next February...or whenever they come in. Then, I will have one 18x8 for the spare and one that I will probably sell to anyone who is looking for a single wheel to use as a spare or to replace one that is damaged. Any AR1 owners can just lemme know if they're interested.

Thanks Gary.

John

No worries, mate. February will be here before we know it.

I got the wheels this afternoon and they look great...look much better in person than in pictures. I love how the color is a dead-on match for titanium silver. I'm going to try to have them put on after work. I think the staggered tire set up will work great 'til the 9" rears come in.

Thanks again.
John
