Slight change of plan with those General Exclaim UHP tires. They're being used on a brand new set of 16 inch American Racing wheels instead. We had the wheels sitting around, still in the boxes, doing nothing. The ultimate plan is to use them on the Corrado, but we may as well get some use out of them in the meantime. The tires are now mounted on the wheels, but not installed on the car yet. Here they be:

Comments: Hi Erika. Yes, those are very difficult rims to find since they have been out of production for several years. They are made by American Racing and the model of the wheel is Vortec AR-7. I did some looking online and found one place where you can still buy them, but you will need to know which size and bolt pattern you need. Once you find out which size and bolt pattern you need, follow this link: http://www.sportcompactonly.com/American-Racing/performance-parts_b-264_pl-5736.htm I hope that helps!
