Believe Brad has 18s on one of his cars (or both?) if you want a visual reference.

Wanted to throw them on mine since everyone runs a little different suspension and weight factors...

robb, check in at racewerks from time to time, especially the beginning of february. I'm sure John would let you borrow my 17's to try on.

The dog is 4 months old, pretty much been in the shelter his whole life, so he isnt trained and likes to bite on things. The biting should just be a puppy thing and the housetraining just takes time. I may need a dogsitter for friday.

you shouldnt have rubbing issues, that green car was LOW, 235/40R17's all around. Brand new goodyear eagle F1's. 10mm spacers up front to clear the brakes.

Its a lab mix, maybe weimeraner, maybe some pit... He's 4 months, mid size for now. likes to bite on stuff learning to use the outside bathroom.
Right now my wife is saying just leave him in the crate, he's gonna have to get used to it sometime.

He's gonna get HUGE. My neighbor has two Weimaraner's and they are fricken horses.

What times would you need him watched?

I could do it but would prefer to do it at my place since Id obviously be more comfortable here. I have had a dog before, and trained her well before my mom made me get rid of her. should be good times, though I wouldnt mind chilling at your place if I have to.

Let me know the deal, PM or whatever or texts work as well...

Ill have to go check out those 17's, whats the offsets on them? 10mm to clear the brakes, they must be some HUGE brakes. Ill have to check them again if I head back out to Racewerks

Raised several rottweilers and an Olde English Bulldog (cross between english and american bull). Crate training them is pretty key to get them used to going to the bathroom outside. Make them sleep and eat in the cage when they are puppies. Only take them out when you are around and playing with them and don't let them just roam freely around. They will make a mess in the cage a few times, but once they realize they have sleep and eat there they will hold it until they go outside.

After a couple of months they get pretty well house-trained. We still have to cage our bulldog when we go out, he's about a year and half so will still tear some stuff up if he gets too bored. The rottweilers are all fine once they hit two years, its like a switch goes off and they calm down. They stay vigilant though and will ward off people coming near the house when its empty.

It's going to be big so socialize the hell out of the dog too with people, kids and other dogs while its still young.

Right now he bites a bit much to socialize. Its only play biting, but hes got some sharp teeth. Also I think I'm gonna need to change his diet up, this puppy chow gives him some nasty gas...

Science Diet is the way to go, Its what I fed my dog when I could afford it. They have less corn filler in them and no chicken byproducts(i.e. beaks feet wings...), so you feed them less and they get more out of it, which in the end they poop LESS. So its a good bet, or if SD is a bit out of the price range go with Iams... same deal, just not as good as SD.

I use to work at Petsmart stocking the shelves so I got to hear all the speals of who is better and why... so its how I know
