New Shoes

Well to make a long story short, car was making noises when driving. Ended up replacing 4 struts, two lower control arms, sway bar bushings, front brakes, a passenger side wheel bearing and 4 new tires. Well i decided that if i was spending all this money and buying new tires, i might as well put on soem new wheels. So i picked up some 18 chromies. i swear 18's look soo much smaller on this car than my other car.






Also did a lil picture taking with my other toy and i love this shot so i figured i'd post it too

It has to do with the sidewall height, When I put 18" on my wife's Sebring convertible, I took the stock 16" from the Sebring and put them on my daughter's Neon with 40 series tires, those 16s looked huge on her car.

Never been a fan of the 6, 7, 8, etc multispoke wheels, but they look okay. That shot with the fog lights on makes it looks like your wheels need to be about an inch wider to fill the wheel wells out properly.

Next step - put some chapstick on those new tires!!!
