No one is making the kit as of yet. He is working on putting a kit together with one of the industry leaders of airbag systems. He is not on the site right now due to him and a mod not seeing eye to eye. If you want to see his build thread look it up on FJ, "Art always starts with a blank canvas".

Spray, next time buy 215/40 or 215/35s the 225 series are too big for going slammed.

Matt, I really think those 17x8 ESMs would look great on your car.

Which ESM wheels? I like the idea of larger wheels like the 19". I know you can get more low if the offset is right. I am not big on the stretch or poke (to each their own, it looks good on some cars) so a large wheel with a correct offset will still tuck. On the other hand the 17" tire will be cheaper.

I still like the idea of 18" steel wheels, like the ones that come on the Charger cop cars. I would have to get one that have at least a et50 so i could use adapters.

Well with the deal we spoke about I say go for it, but otherwise I would just go straight to 17s.

16" wheels are hard to find good rubber for, and when going low the right tires really need to be used to make it work.



Spray, 19s will work but you'll need to run some pretty small tires to pull them off. Just be aware of that.

I think stretched white walls would look kinda cool, lowrider style. But you can't find them anywhere for our sizes.

Now someone understands what I'm trying to achieve. You can get the sidewalls shaved and painted. I used to do this when I was in highschool and had lowriders.
