ya i had the vlimited lip on it on saturday... 'till i realized to properly put it on i'll need to use a drill.

i don't trust myself w/ tools... so i have to wait 'til a more capable person can put it on for me

soon enuff.

just really wanted to post the wheel/tire setup that i finally settled putton on the 8.5" wheels. 255s were just a ta'd bit wide. I ran the 255 azenis, i bet if i ran a less agressive tire, ones that doesn't run so wide, i can put on a 255.. but why right? i'll just be putting it up for the #s. the 245/40/18 clears, no drama, i'll be sticking w/ that.

i thought about bringing in some 18 x 9... but...if the 18 x 8.5 w/ 245 is the wides I can go w/out doing extra work... why put an 18 x 9... so i can rub? ntia maybe if i had a widebody.

@ least w/ my setup I was really trying to avoid coils just because of my commute through the pothole riddened 680/sunol grade here in nor. cal. i guess if i really want to bounce around all over the road i'll roll my bugeye w/ JICs
