I'm very interested to know how this sounds, and what adapters you needed to use for the installation.

Thinking about getting rid of my Type R subwoofers.

New Water Pump/Pulley and Belts.
Put new tires on the rear so I get no rubbing even with 4 people in the car. Snapped a pic on the ride home even thought it decided to pour while en route back home.

I CANT!
I had 245 40 R 18 in the rear and it was rubbing like hell to the point where I had to put my winters on to take it down the street to get new rubbers on. I am now sitting on Toyo Proxy 4s 235 40 18.
