Put the front back on with Diode Dynamics yellow fog lights, and an MP Concepts chin spoiler:

That's the good news. Now for the bad: front tires are toast. Inner 1.5" are completely smooth. Whatever about those; I noticed this:

Has to be from that fucking pothole I hit in Arkansas back in December. All the panels look fine, and the shop got the alignment back I spec. I've put 5k miles on the car like this. 😳

It really was. Saw it at the last second and hit it doing 80+. Fucked up the front wheel, knocked the alignment out and put a bubble in the sidewall of the rear.

Finally got my tires/wheels installed...canceled the last 2 appointments due to cold and snow; I couldn't put it off any more even though it was wet and light snow this AM. Now it needs a good detail. Just a bit of poke out of both the front and back, no rubbing with full lock on steering. SVE SP2's 10/11X19's Fronts are Goodyear F1 Supercar 3's in 285/25/19 and rears are Nitto 555RII in 305/25/19.

My wheels showed up today..... WHOOHOO.
And my final bargain basement tire.
Still waiting on TPMS sensors and my two sets of lugnuts.
Didn't know if I needed the long or the short, turns out the short ones will be perfect, ordered both just incase.
Wheels were lighter than I expected, and that box gave me pause. But Forgestar packed em right and the wheel was fine.

And my front two tires are only 25 pounds each. Goodyear something's. Some summer tire in 265/40/19.
Took the shipping labels off today, and realized both were brand new, just had damaged labels.......I'll live with the damaged peel off labels for the $600 savings!
Cat room is starting to look like a used tire shop...... 🤷🏼‍♂️
That's what you get when you buy a house with no garage.

Funny I did the same thing. I almost picked up the raptor too but when I saw the new batmobile I had to pull the trigger on that. I figured it would be a nice little project for the kids and I.

It'll also would go well with the ZR1, Ferrari and my other lego mustang in the garage.

Why not the same brand of tyre on each corner?
