That looks amazing. Hyper black really fits the car I feel, and I agree about the tires. Very quiet!

according to this page http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp it says they will sit 5mm (.2") closer to the strut when compared to your setup, would you say you have more than 5mm (.2") clearance from the strut right now?

This might be a stupid newb question but unless you're running serious power adders do you really need that kind of traction in the rear on these cars?

They def look amazing tho

to me it doesn't matter if i had 225hp or 625hp, 275 wide tires fit perfect on the rear of a non-m. besides, stretched tires = all show and no go.

The Hyperblack is such a great finish. I had them for a little over a year. The color changes with lighting is drastic and amazing.

I'm sure you will love them. Congrats and enjoy!

I love how the Hyper Black finish changes colors on you! One of my favorites!
