We only own two stands, I want my dad to buy some new ones. We usually break the work in half, front and back, so this was a fluke thing.

I promise, I won't do this again... hopefully.

I did that once at work. I ended up bending the rotors a little. Worst thing it was a high priced luxury sedan, and the owner a got a free $570.00 brake job out of my pay. Wont do that again. It takes one expensive lesson to learn to do it the right way.

And your rotors look good, and your car also looks good with those rims, better than your stock rims.

Thanks!! I hate having to put my stock rims on during winter, they are so blah.
