    Pics of my ’11 GT with new wheels, tires, and tint

    I joined here years ago when I was thinking about a 2005 GT. I ended up going through a couple of VWs and, most recently, a tuned BMW 335i before I found myself in a 2011 GT. I look forward to becoming a contributing member of the forum.

    EDIT: THUMBNAIL LINKS NOT WORKING. I HAVE ADDED URL LINKS BELOW EACH THUMBNAIL.

    Here are some pics of my new baby with her new wheels, tires, and tint:

    Details:
    Tint: 35% front, 15% rear
    Wheels: Carroll Shelby CS69 Special Editions 20x9 and 20x10
    Tires: Nitto Invo 255/35/20 and 295/35/20

    Here are a couple of before pics:

    Sorry for posting so many pics but I really love the car and wanted to share it with you.
    NOTE: I know most of you will say it needs a drop and I don’t disagree. However, it rides well and my commute is a bumpy one so I doubt I’ll be dropping soon.

    Thanks for looking…

    Some areas of the country don't get high speed internet. they have 56K dial up connections that makes opening threads with pics very challenging. As a courtesy, I was letting them know that there were alot of pics in the thread so they don't try to open it and hang their computer.

    We used to do these things back in 2007 and earlier. dcrevenge is lucky to not have experienced those days I guess :D

    Anyway, the car looks great. Sorry to revive a dead thread, I am looking to tint my 2013 GT and did a search for posts about tint. Do you like the 35%? Do you think you should've gone darker?

    Haha, Jimbo has 9 posts from when he joined in 2004 and posted this in 2010. Doesnt look like he ended up contributing a whole lot, and likely wont be responding to your question!

    I ended up going with 35% and I terribly regret it!!! Wish I would've gone 20%. :(

    the Camaro next to it has 20% i believe. Look how dumb mine looks, why even bother tinting it! haha

    It needs dropping to correct roll center in the rear so you can have more fun in the twisty's also better grip.
