Really hey ? That's good to know ! When I bought the car the guy had 18" Dodge truck rims on it , I couldn't even turn into my parking spot and it made a horrible rubbing noise . Someone gave me brand new factory 17" so I've got those on now . Wondering how people have 20" rims on theirs ! Must be something to do with the offset ?
Yea a lot of factors plays into it, wheel size, width and offset,
I currently run 19x 9.5 +40 offset, and they are almost flush, any higher of a offset and they would stick to far Into the wheel well and rub

I definitely noticed it was a much more rugged bumpy ride with the 18's , but they were also pretty dinged up and he had 4 mismatched tires and fronts on the back , left's on the right etc lol . Dude just butchered this car I'm surprised I was able to rescue it

Ya the 18's he had on it had low pros or something , was horrible though even at 20km my phone would bounce around so much in the cup holder it would text and call people non stop , just a nauseating ride . Soon as I put new rubber and factory rims on it felt like a Cadillac in comparison lol . All the rims I really like are in the bigger size and for some reason cheaper too . Hard to find anything I like in 17 . Someone in my area has these gorgeous Rikens from the 80's fully restored and custom . $900 is outta my budget when I got brand new factories for free 🙂 The plastidip I did is holding amazing and the shop that did my belt said it was the best job theyve ever seen and didn't believe it was plastidip . And I just did a quick Scotch Brite once over and threw it on . Gonna add this metallic purple over the black to go with my still blue pearl paint 🙂

Installed the new exhaust and tires. Gonna purchase a new control panel and bezels soon. Also I have cool plans for the interior, found very cool seat covers lately on eBay. I was planning to be resting in my real estate in Cannes in this month but I can't move anywhere because of the pandemic so I decided to work on my project car

I've thought about seat covers just cause my AC doesn't work and I don't wanna be sweating in my seats lol . Their in great shape so I'd like to protect them but aside from custom I'm not sure how well they'd fit , and I really like the cut out in the headrest

Did some cleaning of the brakes/rotors, also fixed a cracked corner on the bumper. New fender mounting points as well. Reinforced the side splitters, they were flaring out slightly , got it on point. Scrubbed all the rims, washed her.up

Gonna attempt to rebuild the OEM cv axles. Any pointers are appreciated as this will be my first time doing this. I also wrapped the 3rd taillight. Had that VHT nightshade spray on it, I won't be using again. I'm using Vvivd smoke tint

Why? Replacements are cheap unless you’re making serious power they will still last a long time and won’t break, like if you’re not FI

Decided to drive the car today to work, still breaking in new clutch
Those headlights are awesome how did you get the halos orange did you do it yourself? I had the regular sped-D halo lights installed at the end of last year and they have a clear coat already peeling so I'd like to do some work on them unless your headlights are bought that way?
