I am as far as I know now. OI have a motion picture shoot on the 7th but it is only a morning shoot. So I am about 90% sure I am going to do it. Can you send me the link?
I remember reading it but can't find it.

Interestingly enough, that is the same thing they said about my BMW when I got the tyre wheel combo until I dropped it, then everyone thought it looked totally badass. Funny how a lack of a drop makes a tyre look too tall.

Same series tyres and 17in wheel.

After getting a chance to actually drive the car on some bends last eve on the way home, I can say it sticks a lot better, and is a lot more planted. The new tyres even though only a 55 instead of a 60 are so much more rigid, and have stiffer sidewalls. Even though I am not that overwhelmed at their looks, I love the wheels and know it'll look tons better when I drop it. I can say the ride is more firm, not harsh, but firmer to quite a degree. Man, the stock tyre was slushy! The car also feels more flickable I guess due to the light weight of the wheels and tyres since there is about a 14lb difference between them and the stock combo per corner. It also SEEMS to accelerate a little quicker. I do know that the last time I went with a tyre wheel combo that was heavier than a stock set (17s and 245s on a BMW Bavaria from a 205 50 15) it felt the opposite in that the car felt like it was slower and took more steering wheel effort to make transition. I vowed never to do another swap without dropping weight. I will also say the car looks a lot better in person than in those pics! Those pics make it look like a 4x4 Focus!

So I called Discount and told them I wanted 50s instead of the 55s they put on my car. $12.00 total to swap out to the tyres since the new ones were $8.00 more each. But I now haver 50s instead of the 55s which after looking at them for a week were too tall!

The way the sightings are supposed to work is you see a car and declare the sighting and see if that car is a FF... You don't go looking for people's cars. LOL

I do live on the Westside though so we may just not cross paths. I'm sure you'd see me long before I saw you ;)
