    The body kit makes it a little bit acceptable. If you don't have one ( you know what people think about body kits), i think you should go smaller. I have a 93 sol si and i think the 15" fat five on them are great. But that's my opinion.

    DIY: ENGINE OIL CHANGE. Just get big rims to get under the car. Then drain your oil. Most important don't forget to refill it. :D

    No offense the idea is just too funny.

    i'm going with a taller rim for more top end. the 16's i have on it now only lets it up to 140 before it hits redline. i'm looking for more speed. around 180 will be nice. you gottaa love MT...there are sooo many open straights that never have any cars on them. i'm having a custom fifth gear made for more top end too. it's like a .55 i believe. but yeah i think i'm gonna look into some 18's. i don't plan on dropping it any so clearance won't be an issue. but thanks for the info guys.
