[MENTION=14516]Joelang33[/MENTION] if you want a real eye catcher you can always do white on one side and Candy Apple Red on the other side :eyebulge: :eyebulge:those new white project6gr wheels having me wondering whether I should go with them or the candy apple :shrug:
That looks great Lugz. I am thinking of going the same way. Do you have a side on photo?Thanks to [MENTION=27078]Paul@PKAUTODESIGN[/MENTION] for hooking me up with a beautiful set of wheels/tires. Decided to go with Paul since he's such a strong forum supporter and was very responsive in my 3,000 questions. Cost was about the same as it would have been if I got all the parts, went to tire store, fist fight with them over some problem, etc. These things were very well packaged and flawless. My only nit would be the bright silver TMPS stems used on gunmetal wheels.
Setup: 19x9.5 TSW Bathurst 39ET. 5mm spacer up front, nothing in back. "Tons" of room in front against strut - enough I could put my hand in between. Hubrings 76.0/70.6.
Weights on my scale: Rear stock PP/Pirelli 65.5lbs, frt 61.75
Bathurst with 285/35/19 Potenza RE71R: 50.5lbs.
Both numbers include wheel weights and TPMS, but no lugs.
The RE71R is quite a bit shorter than the stock rear PP assembly, enough that it throws off the speedo by approx 3mph at 60-65 mph. Will need to get my speedo adjusted with tune.
But damn, what a difference in turn-in and responsiveness. Haven't even worn the tire mold sex wax off the Potenzas yet, and they already make the stock pirelli setup feel like your grandpa's E70 snow tires he had on his impala. And yeah, she's getting lowered soon... the 4x4 look isn't becoming. :ford:
Thanks, man. This is the closest thing to a side shot that I have. Don't want to take too many pictures before she gets lowered a bit.That looks great Lugz. I am thinking of going the same way. Do you have a side on photo?
Definitely lower itHere is a quick shot of my horribly dirty car I took on the way out of work today. Trying to decide if I want to lower it a little bit (less than 1" due to the driveways I need to get in) or not. I'll be taking some more from different angles if the sun ever comes out and I can wash it.
19x10/11 AMR Dark Stainless with 285/305 MPSS.
Im still in love with how this came out !:cheers:Thanks, man. This is the closest thing to a side shot that I have. Don't want to take too many pictures before she gets lowered a bit.
BTW, having driven it some more the weight loss is very noticeable, not to mention the extra grip of the RE-71R. Shazam! Car still understeers though. Will be fixing that soon... :ford:
