    proxes fz4 = mud and snow. worst case, i just put the as430's back on. those are AMAZING in the snow.

    funny, trav wrecked his tercel on fz4's. they are wiiiiide.

    oh yeah, eric, they rub [​IMG] but only when i slide the car. perfect for DD. guess ill have to either cut the well lip more or roll em up.

    fuckin right doggie its hawtness! i went to blockbuster and ive already had compliments. everyone around town knows the car, its one of only 2 hopped up mirages in southbridge. the other is 1.8 drag only turbo 4g coupe.


    also, the wheels howl a bit, almost like the azenis. ive got no ill effects, they ride straight and smooooth. the sidewall max pressure is 50psi. im running them at 40psi. is that too low? they are bi-directional. trust me they are on the right sides [​IMG]

    after further investigation they are indeed circuit 10's oh well. still :thumbsup: to me!


    driving in the snow/ice... they are just as good as the as430s. i will say on dry or wet pavement they grip nice, and stopping is unbelieveable with the wider track.

    to hell with you B, they work great on the mirage.

    we then proceeded to tear up the back of the parking lot with linked fwd drifting :)

    You got the chalk on the window, and not on the chalkboard. You might wanna look into that.

    Looks good. I like em. But for the love of god bathe your car.

    I live in 28 days of rain straight, and yet sometimes my car still gets bathed on shitty days.

    thats bingo marker y0.


    id love to :cry2: but with the heating up and freezing of the water everyday if i washed the car it would be a waste of 5 bucks, because it would be just as dirty within 10 miles. tommy actually washed the car for me yesterday when it was in his garage, and this is the aftermath of driving it from the shop, to the gas station, to subway, and then home.
