Finally got her completely cleaned and detailed top to bottom including the suspension. Put some brand new Rattlers on with new Michelin PS 4’s 295/30/18 and 355/30/19.
These pictures are shortly after install so she still hasn’t settled back down height wise fully.
Way better than the original tires that were hard as granite.
Just have the new Corsa to throw on and change the fluids and she’s fully ready.

Those are NOT Sidewinder Wheels!
Your spokes are long, and turn outward.

Not Original Sidewinders, with the short spokes, or SW2 Ultras.

They are SRT "Long-Spoke" wheels. But NOT any model of Sidewinder.

Ironic that a genuine Yellow/Black VCA Edition would have originally came with blak-tinted wheels,.

SW1 are marked by light weight and 5 short spokes that turn inward

My mistake they’re actually rattlers not sidewinders. They didn’t come on it originally as I stated I just added them and new tires to the VCA. They can with the same wheels as other 05’s except they were a smoked polish instead of bright polished. Here’s how it was before the new wheels. I need to get the originals all redone as they have slight curb rash and such.

Ironic that a genuine Yellow/Black VCA Edition would have originally came with Sidewinder [SW-1] wheels, also called "Copperhead Wheels" by some, or 'ACR-X wheels' later on.
