Many thanks to Chillypepper http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Thanks for the great deal.
Here you go. The fron may come down a little lower when I get the right spacers on. I'll move the 8mm to the back and put some 5mm's on the front.



All tucked in for the night

Better pics with the sunshine tomorrow. I have a full Caratere kit on order. Hopefully will have that on by the end of the month.

Hopefully that's true. I just need to find a good body shop in the area to paint and put the kit on.

Wheels are hot, but the rear setup leaves a lot to be desired. I'm biased though.
If you want you car to handle *correctly* you would go with your setup.
For the true euro style, nothing smaller than 9.8" or higher (when averaged between you and car buddies wheels) in the back.

Those are the proper tire size for my setup. 17X8.5" on all 4 corners. No point in stretching the tires on that kind of setup.
I will probably lower it a bit more once the kit goes on. But need to be careful with commuting 520 miles a week.

Not knocking your wheel choice, just poking fun at you "skinny" tire guys. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Another new rims post......... (BoraBarn4)

Wow, got those on pretty quick! I'm glad you like them...They look really good on your car. Almost makes me wish I would have kept them, but I need money to buy a street bike.
Can't wait to see what the car looks like with the Caractere kit on it. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Another new rims post......... (gti32)

HEHE. Ya that was the first thing I did when I got home. Put them on and dropped it down a bit. I got her washed and waxed earlier today just to get ready.
