    Check out the mad wheel gap!

    What a difference...the whole tire/wheel combo is actually smaller than the oem ones, I went from 185/60/R14 to 195/50/Z15.

    Would anyone like to go mudding tonight? (Like someone with a ZR2 maybe? Or a Jeep with a blown axle?:))

    Yes, but it looks a lot smaller becuase of the tires. The 185/60's were friggin huge when I compared them to the 195/50's.

    I wonder if you have more wheel gap than my truck. You need to drive up to CT sometime and we will go offroading.
    Get some springs dood.

    :withstupid:
    you dont want to use stock lugnuts with aftermarket rims
    especially open ended ones
    open ended ones whel they are open to the ellements will allow the lug stems to rust

    and stock lugnuts are more of an accorn shape (rounded) this is correct for stock rims
    but aftermarket rims have more of a V shaped hole so the stock nuts dont seat in as well and come loose easily
    get some aftermarket lugnuts on there

    Looks good. When did you get the car fixed from the accident? From those pics you cant even tell that it was hit.

    Yeah, I might order some Kyokugen Lugnuts from Jason or MachIII...and the mudflaps are for offroading, that's the whole point of this thread, where have you been? :)

    what ever you do, dont buy kyokugen lugs. The key blows. I like the lugnuts but my key is on the frits. I am going to have to buy a new one soon. I swear that they make the key out of playdo because the thing strips so easily. Go to daliracing.com and buy the rays/volk ones for 95 shipped.

    BTW nice choise on tires :)
