Lol, Matt. We are not "engaged" engaged, just that it's a well discussed event after we finish school. Her mom would lose her shit if we got engaged and didn't get married within a year! haha

mrplow,
if i re-barrel, I could probably go up to 13s or 13.5s


Justin,
I wanted the 13s, with 5.5" lips, I really did!
but I also didn't want to force myself into major body work on a rebuilt $3000 POS with scratches and dings in virtually every panel. The idea of spending another $800 on new barrels for these wheelsdidn't really tickle my fancy either, as I want to bump these up to 20s on my next car. :(
I did try to get me some Miro's though, that way we could be wheel buddies when we roll together this summer!  but they were too expensive! ;)

Jonny,
Thanks! :thumbup:


lol @ nic.
Everyday! everyday! :'(

Got some new lips and doing work on dem hips!


What it is... by Thatguy Youhate, on Flickr

Those are 19x12.5" wide rears with 275/30s.
They are actually over 13.5" wide from the outside of lip to lip. :lol:

And then 19x11" fronts with 245/35s... I can actually tuck the 12.5s if I add a bit more camber but the -9.5 I currently have back there is already too much... Will probably straighten the up to -9 or even -8.5 if possible.

Looks dope man. I want a big body car so bad.

Dope bro! :thumbup:

:lol:
Thanks, this latest round of work has been a bit of a nightmare. Got the car on the ground now though. It goes in for an alignment tomorrow afternoon and then I can finalize all of the body work and finish it off. Hopefully in time to come back to Van on Monday!

A truck... Maybe a huge jacked up f350 with than neuvous-douchebag Monster/Rockstar styling so I can finally come to terms with latent Ed Hardy/Affliction Valley side of my personality.  :D


I'm looking at late 1st get or early 2nd gen Tundra for camping/fishing needs and to tow a boat!

nice, I was toying with the idea of moving back into a truck, but id be leaning towards a newer model Chevy/GMC.

Good luck with the search
