I know it took a while guys. It took alittle tiral and error but I ended up needing some 8 mm spacers up front like I said before. Making me run 18x10 et 12 up front and 18x10 et 20 out back like I said before. I'm meeting up with a buddy to roll and pull my fenders tomorrow so I will be able To lower it a bit more My car rubs a little in the back right now on bumps, I decided to add more bump stops in the rear today to help that for now. I'm going to align it at work on monday so I'll see where my cambers at then!

Sorry not the greatest pics! It's been getting pretty warm here in so cal. I gotta give here a nice detail then I will get some proper shoot pics coming











Check out our tire machine. It has a built in cheetah and it literally does everything. you just have to push buttons and push pedals to operate all the hydraulic arms. It even takes the wheel off the machine for you. So you can get it over to the balancer.




Tire on the rim before it was mounted.



Pulled out the traditional cheetah to get at the lower bead aswell.



Lots of lube all over the tire and rim, and bam! First try!!




Road force balanced all of them and man they drive smooth.





















Here's a few Iphone pics!

Feels good to be back guys.













On a side note.

I scored a set of HID's off a car that guy traded in. We have to bring it back to factory during our CPO (Certified Preowned) Inspection. So i got a set of what looks to be 3000k HID's So I mounted them up in my HID's. I know, not a permanent mounting... lol.








My girl wanted to be part of the action as well






One more thing.

I'd Like to share a fun sport of mine.... Penny Surfing



That is all guys!!! More to come as usual!
