Well lets see I have 6 track wheels for the slicks, one set of 4 plain Magnum SRT wheels (the original 5-spoke design) that I use for wet weather tracking and one set of 4 more of the same original SRT wheel that have been stripped of their clear coat, polished and then powder-coated black on the spoke face. Since the aluminum is bare it is a royal b*tch to keep clean :). The chrome wheels you see in the pic were forged MC2's that I loved but one of them cracked. I still have that one in the back yard so there's one more wheel.

Hey Matt , I have had a photo image of a black Magnum on the Laguna Seca corkscrew for about 4 or 5 years now and am wondering if it is of you and your car? It has been my favorite Magnum pic since I down loaded it after buying my R/T 5 years ago. If I can figure out how to attach it to this post I will, if not send me a message and I can PM you with a copy of it.
