Yup that's the damaged one... i like to think the damaged one is not too bad and is fixable

but on the inside of the wheel between the 2 lips it's got a prety nice tear

but i've heard of Greens fixing worse

I have found way better deals at junkyards here, i once got 4 13" Panasports (10 pounds each) for $120, resold them for $400 and they were dirty as ****

Nah, not really. It's basically the same tire. re01r has a softer sidewall but it's a 35 profile tire so probably doesn't have that much flex so steering response should be on par with the SS. Also with 265/35 I get 3cm more rubber on each wheel + I can lower the car even more

Bah, now you're being silly.





It does look good though.
OK Tire will be mounting them today with their touchless wheel machine. Then some new lugs, and I can cross this part of the project off the list.

****in' A!

Hey, you gotta admit, 265's on a +29 rim on a stock GD body is pretty impressive . I just don't cruise around either. I drive it hard .

Don't tell anyone, but I'm running 245's on the front.
All said and done, you have more rubber, and power than my muscle car. Isn't that hilarious?



PS: I saw the fmic pics in the other thread. That car is going to be a killer!

On that note, I spotted a twin turbo kit on eBay the other day.
While I'm not going to buy turbo stuff from eBay, the concept is sexy...
