The retired is nice, I'll trade the old for young any day.

I need to take better pics of my set up but here is one pic. 6ul with hankooks, 225 all around.



Sad thing is I've had this set up on the car since February and haven't driven on them yet ...soon, very very soon.

I wanted those wheels soooooo bad, I just didn't have the money. FE3 comes first. I'm hoping that by the time I have th motor built and in he will be rolling out with some 15x10's for the rear that he lists on the site as a possibility.

You all need to get your **** DROPPED! My ride height varies from side to side, but it's in the neighborhood of 11.75" front, 12.25 rear, with 2.3F/2.5R camber. The nickel finish hasn't stopped amazing me yet.

Emilio said the 245/40s would only last a couple thousand miles on the street, and at $220 a pop I don't think many can afford it. Hopefully Hankook will release a 245/40 RS2. That would be sick.

you talking about the Avons (sp?) lasting? Those wheels look so nice....**** I want them. I got shitty ugly *** GSR Hammers that the previous owner had on there. I agree with you on the drops though, I held out for 2 months specifically looking for FM "OLD" springs. I love the drop! Just gotta watch out for speed bumps in parking lots :(
