I'm going to quick embarrass myself for a minute...

I have the old thread on my book marks and I kept using that to check up on the forums (its been busy at the start of the year so I've only checked like twice), but the last post was and has been on the morning of New Years day and nothing since. My first thought was "hmm, people must have had a new year's resolution to not go on the forums as much..."

Fact of the matter is, is that we started a new thread, I didn't realize it and I'm just a damn moron.

...I should have known better.

Meet on Saturday? Sounds like fun. I'm playing some pond hockey in the morning at 9, but should hopefully be able to make it.

Nice. I just signed up and am awaiting the confirmation.

Remus/Eisenmann Race Exhaust Comparo. Lets get it done. I'll try and remember to bring my video camera.

I brought my summer wheels to MN Enameling, located in Jordan, MN which is quite a drive for some people. I need to add that Jordan, MN is a beautiful little town. After dropping my wheels off, I spent some time at downtown Jordan going in antique stores and taking pictures of the town. But that's for another thread. I paid $325 for my wheels to be sandblasted and powdercoated dark gunmetal. They even fixed up my badly curb rashed wheel! Whole process took about 5 days. They did awesome work for the amount I paid. Precision Wheels charged a lot more per wheel (Don't quite remember exact price but it was over $120 per wheel). What made it worse was that they don't touch bent or curbed wheels 19in and bigger.

Attached is a picture of my wheels the minute I brought them home.

Here's their info.
397 Ervin Industrial Drive, Jordan, MN
(952) 378-1130

EDIT: I just tried going onto their website but it's down, so hopefully they didn't close.

I know! I'm not a fan of Precision Wheels because, your right, they don't even look at 19's. Does MN Enameling work on 19's??? I have a very large bend on the lip of my winter wheels which are 19s, which would be nice to get fixed.

(don't ask, I should have 18s for winter with all the potholes, but thats another story)

Yea, my summer wheels are 19inches and mnenameling had no problem at all with it. I'm not sure if they will be able to fix a bent wheel.

Welcome! check out www.mnbmw.com as well.

If you can't be bothered with a separate set of winter tires and summer tires, just invest in a set of solid all season tires. I am sure you can get a lightly used set for dirt cheap on craigslist.
