Hey all just wanted to let you know I found a good local source for tires. I bought 235/35/19 Generals for around $170 pre tire. This includes mounted, balance, rotate, and road hazard. I thought this was a pretty good deal, let me know if anyone needs one.

Would anyone be interested in a Midwest meet? I am in Kansas and could plan something if enough people were interested.

Hey where do you guys take your wheels to get tires put on them? I have 19's. I took mine to NTB and they damaged my wheel to make a long story short. I'm in the process of getting it fixed by sending them back to the manufacturer. NTB is paying for it to get fixed which is great but i need a place where there not going to ruin my wheels when I put new tires on.

LOL, yeah... those were some good shots! My car is almost back to summer mode. Wheels are on and new coilovers are on. I'm still adjusting the ride height to where I want it. I think I got the fronts just right... I still need to play with the adjustable end links since I may have a little too much preload on the front bar.

I need to re-do the rears since I put the locking collar on top of the spring perch... its supposed to go on the bottom.

Damn bro... that sucks! I was going to have them rotate my rears when I got an alignment this Sunday. What did they do to them? They scraped both of my sideskirts once and paid to get them repainted ($500) lol...
