Colin, the car looks great! For your occupation, and the style of your car.. I don't think there could be a better combo!


Today I got busy and made one of my wheels turn from red to silver with polished lip. Looks better, I'll post a pic when theyre all done with new tires on them.

Now I just can't decide if I should go with a 225/50/15 or a 225/45/15 or just stick with my 205/50/15's.

anything of colour makes the wheel look much smaller than it actually is.

being that theyre only 15's to start with... That not exactly my desired look, especially now that it is flared.

I'd go with the 45's. It'll make the rims look bigger

Only due to soft suspension in the front, but when the new setup gets here... I have a feeling 9k fronts will take care of that.

225/50's look so badass though

mods for show ftl, if you can fit such big rims.... why not bigger tires for the performance advantage, altho running on a wider rim does yeild more performance from that size of tire if you cant go bigger

Got some pics. Looks like I need to lower the car just a bit more. The red doesn't show well on the pictures. It also wasn't my intension to go for the stretched look, it just turned out that way. Next set of rears will be 275's...

Friggin hell, I was changing my plugs from the coldones for my NOS to my hotter plugs, well I was making super good time changing the first 6 and #8, then on the the tough one #7, this one is hard with my headers cuz they wrap around the steering shaft, it took forever to get the plug out, somehow harder than last time, then I go to put in the hot plug and bam it falls out of my fingers and doesnt hit the ground. Now i cant find it and waiting for my spotlight to finish charging, damn headers.

Well a buddy came over and first try looking under the truck he reached pull and bumped it and grabbed it, so all 8 hot plugs back in, feels a lil better on the bottom, could be my head. Goin to advance the timing tomo, bring it back up to 10* maybe 12* we'll see how it likes 10 first.

The wheels are 18 x 7.5" front, 18 x 9.5" rear. Falken sizes their tires very differently than most other manufacturers I've had. 245's should have only been a very slight stretch and hardly noticable, but instead they must be measuring the 245mm at the side wall and not the tread.
