Yep, just used the flashlight app on my phone. Tried a LED flashlight but the color was too blue.

Sex on four wheels lol. I hope you don't mind but your car has brainwashed me in getting SHP's done in the same color as yours. .don't worry though I'll be a little different maybe machining the lip? Even is not though an L05 like mine would look wayy better dressed in those shoes. :lol:

Just kidding man. Keep it up.

Probably got something to do with the fact that you can get 16x8 -10 and 16x9 +0 from factory, and they aren't a bad looking wheel?
If it ain't broke don't fix it :P

Saw your post on Sigma-Galant.com, and no the turbo and injection gear won't bolt to a 4G32.

LOL... then don't look. Must be a Cali thing.

These wheels are super light, and have great offsets from the factory. The only wheels worth putting on it will cost more than I've paid for the car. Anything else will just slow it down, and I'm not going to do that anytime soon.

LOL! zulu's statement strikes me as funny... because, y'know... I see so many Starions every day, that I get tired of seeing the same thing over and over :lol: Haha, okay, okay... wasn't trying to be a dick... but yeah Robert is correct, in that any "decent" wheel you want to put on a Starion is most likely going to be a custom barreled 3-piece wheel that is either a vintage rim that needs to be rehabbed and then re-barreled for the right offset, or a new made-to-order wheel from CCW or Rotiform, etc... That's $2,500-$3,000 (just for the rims). Then there's the issue of buying tires, and when you get in to strange sizes like 17x10.5 (and wider) you're paying at LEAST $200 a tire. (not to mention that your selection of manufacturers goes down to like... 2 or 3) Ready to spend over $3,000 on wheels and tires? Bring your piggy bank.

Also did I mention how many drifters make me offers to buy my OEM wheels? :D

Thats because anything in the states that will fit halfway decent cost over 2k, I just picked up some ssr mesh 16x10.5 and 16x8.5 from japan, should look tits!

I traded my van to robert lately, he is loving it. He's hooked!!!!!!!!
