MaxxHaul ramps. <--------hyperlinked (it doesn't show up well on my screen.) First time ever buying the brand but they worked flawlessly. Backed up on it and pulled up on them. I wish the lip at the end was a little higher, but after a few attempts of doing it without a spotter, I finally got it sorted out. There was zero slipping or pushing on the concrete garage floor. You can remove the ramp and leave the cradle for the tire. Also has the ability to add center sections so you can raise the entire car. We'll see how they hold up.

Put a full length carpet under those ramps and they will never slip. ;)

Not mine but for the wife's Shelby.
Ordered new tires from Tire Rack, and a set of TPMS sensors. The Alcoas never had sensors that worked with her '08, so it's gonna be nice to have that system working again.
Went with Continental ExtremeContact Sport fronts in the same size as what's on the car now, 275/35/20, and Nitto 555RII for the back, in 295/35/20, slightly narrower than the 305s on there now. The 295s should fit better on the 10"-wide wheels, with less sidewall buige and minimal contact patch loss, if any.

The Sports were on a closeout special at $185 a piece, and that played a big part in choosing them and not the newer Sport 02 at almost twice the price.

I actually got mine out and drove it. Figure I need to sell it and buy a 2nd "daily" or just drive the damn thing ! I got a few bugs and dirt but detailed off immediately. Also I'm liking white, pretty much looks clean no matter what.

You'll love the Conti's. Perfect on my 07 SGT. Only the 2nd set of tires it's had....

Yes, I have the older Continental DW tires on the front of my '13 in 285/40/18 and love them.
I'm actually looking for tires for my car too, but limited by the pricing and selections in 285-305/40/18

Really want new wheels, 19" or 20".

Did the rear brakes on the GT. Local tire shop was doing my rotation and balancing and they said the rear brakes needed replacement. They Quoted me $650 wtf?

Pads still had about 20% but rotors had stress cracks.

Rockauto had some great deals. For $250 I upgrade rotors & pads and probably the last brakes I ever put on the car. Lol

Got the new tires installed today. All 4 on the wife's car, new fronts for mine.
Which means now I just need to have mine returned and I can actually start driving it again

Painted my rear axle, 3 coats with a brush, so not 100% of it. The result doesn't make such a difference as I expected for the 3 days of work.

Nevada is almost as bad as California when it comes to vehicle emissions requirements.
I really don't want the air of the 1990th back, but it's clean enough now. All this new regulations is only to torture you and make driving more and more expensive to steal your car. Sooo fed up with the Government.....

Adjusted the air pressure in the tires and checked the fluids under the hood. Topped it off with fresh fuel and went for a short warmup ride. Jumped on it a couple times. It made me smile.
