Default We Have New Rubber

I installed the wheels yesterday I was going to wait to drop the car this month but got impatient. I mean really how long can you leave them in the box.

Wheels
18X7.5 KR10 matte black
Tires
P225/40ZR18 BFG G-Force T/a Super Sport A/S

What do you think? It's a little more tunerish then I wanted but I like it.

They look good. Drop is definitely needed.

BFG FTW. My last BFG set lasted me almost 70,000 miles, bought them again a few weeks ago.

That's what I was going to say. The red definitely matches very well.

It's decent. You're definitely right with the tuner part... But yes, the drop is needed. The rear end looks like it should be a funny car.

Just drive around with weights in the trunk for now...or bodies. Either works.

Ya I figure a 1" in the front end 1 3/4 rear will do the trick.
