New Wheels Mini-Shoot

After I got the new wheels/tires put on the 14th, my friend and I went on a little photo shoot.
I haven't messed around with his pics, except for resizing them. I plan to play with them a little when I get bored/more time.
Also plan on washing up the car really well, and going back when we have more time to plan it out. It really was spur of the moment, let's see what we can do in like 20 minutes, kind of thing.
You all saw what my Captivate took here:

Here's what he and his Nikon took (there were literally hundreds of shots, he narrowed it down to 55, and I just picked a few to post here):

Looks great with those new wheels. You know they made a 100% difference in how your car looks, right?

The fourth pic looks like you're off-roading And the third pic is a Centerfold

The third pic running away from the tires looks like it just devoured a truck.

The wheels look great. I love the stance. How much do each of them weigh with tires? Did they help your launch at all?

Thanks guys. We saw those abandoned tires left on the side of the road there and knew we'd like to use them in a shot or 2. It was positioning the car near them to make it work that was tricky.
I'm happy with how they look. I love how they've really narrowed down the wheel well gap without me having to lower the vehicle, which I really don't want to do.
Eddie- when I have the wheels off in a couple of weeks to work on the car, I'll try and remember to weigh them, and let you know. They sure feel heavy though.
And naturally, new rubber always improves my launch.

Not unless I find one cheap. If I do, it'd be a Raptor, or similar.

I think I'm done with appearance for awhile. Save up for a full repaint. We'll see...

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

I didn't even see the plate. Why do some states require a front plate? What good does it do?

Cops can see you coming while they are going the other way? I don't know we have to do have it which is total BS but they will not change it. I have mine kinda like that but its more viable cops pull me over enough already.

Standing in front of the car, at eye level it's virtually invisible (as you can see from the pics), but sitting in a driver's seats looking in your rear view mirror, or oncoming, you can see nearly all of it.
Doesn't matter to me. It's there, if they don't like it, too bad.
