Oh no! Yeah, I made sure right after purchasing both of my S550’s that they each have spare tires (just in case).

Installed Steeda jacking rails and Premium alloy pedals with matching dead pedal on the red convertible today.
I tried installing the premium alloy pedals over the weekend and it was effin' crazy hard. I got the clutch pedal done after a good 45 minutes of struggling to get it on. I have the brake pedal about 75% installed.

Any hints to getting it done without bitching and yelling lol? Did you heat the rubber beforehand?

Yes the trick is to warm up the rubber backing so it’s flexible enough to get locked in place around the brakes.

Picked up some Weld Belmont Drag wheels for the track.

If they were beadlocks I would have probably asked you out..

Nice rims.. Damn do I want some welds. If I asked for another set of rims though... :)
