Haha. I like that Brocus idea.

Have you ever considered getting low resistant tires for those rims. I assume they make them in that size and it should help you fuel mileage.

Yours are still new enough, you may be able to get a good price selling the tires on Craiglist and buying the low resistance ones. I see people selling tires for high prices all the time. I can't tell you if they sell them or not but it may be worth a try.

Thank you very much!

I just saw this guys thread selling his ford racing lowering springs for 50....hmmmm......

I told my dad and he said I could call his friend and he would lower my car with coils and whatnot. He races in the SCCA. I think I might look into that.

Yep! I would love to have my car lowered. I absolutely love nickgt40s zx3. His car and pattaculars car are 2 of my favorite cars on here. I would love to roll my fenders and slam my car like they did. But it wouldnt look as good with 17s. lol

Im hoping to pick up 18's this weekend and put them on... Wont lower it but think it will be good enough for now... I just need it as a daily driver till i land a full time job... 3 part time temp jobs are not my idea of stability! LOL Need a front bumper, both front fenders, and then tint the windows again... Need fresh tint! Then , just roll it out!
