My front camber plates are maxed out and the factory camber bolts are maxed out and I only have -2.83 camber.

Is it safe to use the same aftermarket (spc) camber bolts on the front? The size is like totally smaller. I'm afraid it might snap on hard corners...

According to this vendor it weighs 24.25lbs

Seems on the high side. I'd say it's closer to 20-22

My Prodrives weighed almost 22lbs.... I think 21.35lbs to be be on the button.

My stockers are Enkies not BBS.


Does it really matter that much? How much more does the rubber weigh going from stock up to a 255 or 265 anyway? Once they get going there will be no stopping them!

They had the fitment I liked and they were not Rota's

remember wider tires might also add more weight on every corner...

Weight makes a huge difference. Even a set of rotas in that size don't weigh that much.

I like the Blitz though.
