Looks great!
Nice snag from Corey.

Too many people try to impress others and build their car to what they know someone will like.
You lose sight on what you like, when you simulate your likes around others dislikes.

I can't post anymore, side skirts aren't here yet, and my wheels are in limbo between plastidip and gunmetal (looks horrible).

I'll take more once the side skirts arrive.

Thank yaaaa.

Now somebody help me with my wheels! I've looked around a lot but I can't find a concrete answer.

Specs are
17x8 +36
17x9 +36

I'm lowered about 2+ inches 2 1/2 max. I want a flush fitment and I know I will need spacers, just what size? and Tire size?

I'm not shy from bodywork so a roll and pull are in the works when need be.

I greatly appreciate the opinions.

So far I've been advised for
15mm spacer up front with a 215
10mm spacer in the rear with a 225

alright i would personally do either 215/40 or 225/40 up front, and 245/35 or 235/40 on the rear. just to give you an idea of sidewall height (215/40=86mm sidewall) (225/40=90mm sidewall) (245/35= 85.75mm sidewall) (235/40 = 94mm)

you would be fine with either of the two setups, these are mostly conservative and not very stretched or anything. I'm not sure what kind of look your going for, hellaflush or hellafunctional lol? The smaller sizes (215/40 and 235/40 would have less clearance issues but might be slightly stretched) I would personally choose 225/40 and 245/35 9 (not stretched, more properly fitting). Honestly, if your fenders are rolled, you should be able to fit any of these sizes no problem.

What about a 215 35 up front and a 225 40 out back?? As far as my limited tire (or tyre) knowledge is concerned that will give me a slight raked look also.


And sides are on for some reason haha



My iphone camera sucks.





Also beginning my manwellll swap. Bout to pick up a R154 all set for our application already from a buddy of mine.
