The rotas look much better then the solids imo (I like solids, but your car begs for a sporty watanabe style wheel like that :D). If you are are having rubbing issues maybe mess around with tire size a bit, what's the width of the wheel and what's the current size tire you are running if you dont mind me asking :D.
the rotas are 13x8 +4 205/60/13. The enkei(solid) are i believe either 14x6 or 7 with 215/60/14 tires :tu: I wana see if I can run some 245/60/14 BF Goodrich tires on the back next time I get tires maybe for christmas :D gona be quite awhile till I do more stuff on the car cuz of the swap....

Car looks great. Came a long way from what it used to look. are you by any chance going to run it on the 1/4 mile and see what it runs? Would be nice to see how much faster it is with the 22re in.

so on saturday I picked up some new rims! ( yes I know like every couple of months a new set :roll: haha) finally found some that should fill out my flares pretty well. Idk the brand of them but they are 15x8 like a -30 offset. They have a 4.5 inch lip! They need new tires. the 185/65/15 tire on the are way to big, they'd rub and are almost bald. Gona try to get some 195/50/15 tires for them havent decided on the kind yet though Ive heard good of the yokohama s-drives. Image Image Image Image

So I got the car worked on at performance options this week. I had the guys install some russell stainless steel break lines that I had. I got the oil changed since we will be going down to longbeach soon enough. I also had them install the megan fuel regulator that I had picked up. While they were installing it something did seem right. So after further looking into it they found a pinched/ blocked fuel line near my electronic fuel pump near the back axle. ( which explained why on the hill coming from dublin on 580 my car was struggling to do 55 up it :? ) They got the fuel lin fiasco and regulator all fixed up and now she runs better than ever. now time for torc :tu: :D Image Image
