Smile NEW 18 inch RIMS!!

Check out my new 18" Drag-5 7 spoke gunmetal rims with 245/40/18R tires. These really do kick ass! Nothing but positive comments from friends and strangers. Let me know what you guys think, here are some pics for now. I'll get more pics up sometime tommorow taken in the daylight.





All locking chrome lugnuts baby! Sweet huh? The last pic you can't really see the rims, I just thought it was sweet.

Well originally I was going to get Eibach springs with KYB struts...... but I figured everything up for that with new spring mounts etc..... and it'd be close to $1000!! So I'm going to go get a air suspension kit (pre-fabbed bolt-on airstrubts) and I'll install it all myself since I know more about air suspension than regular suspension..... I gotta go wash my baby, so I can take more pics.... BUT I"LL HAVE THEM UP TODAY!

Here are some more pics, it's really hard to get the pics so they give my rims justice..... but I still haven't got it right. But you get the idea. ALSO notice NO badges or molding is left except for a hood badge.

It feels stiffer and more controlled but is by NO means harsh. I can see how 20+ would create a farely tough ride, but 18's aren't bad. If you guys didn't know the rear is lowered about 1.5" with spring clamps so there is minimal gap there but the front still has some..... oh well, airride will fix that.
