Those wheels will definitely look good. And i did think it looked like you were on coils in that picture.

Yeah, I've been really happy with my Saleen setup. Every time I think about changing it I remind myself that the struts/shocks have a million mile warranty on them. Even with the ST200s on with 45 series tires it looked pretty low. When I ran Falken Azenis in a 40 series on the stock 16s it sat really low. I miss my Azenis. Over the years I have had 3 sets of them, and that was the plan this year until I bought the rims. Then I found out it was almost $800 for a set in 18". I can't justify $1000+ invested in rims and tires again, that's what I had into the ST200s and Continental DWS's once all was said and done.

^^ agreed on the saleen drop springs. i have them paired with koni oranges , its a great setup on my 03. i just need a wheel/ tire that comes closer to flush. btw, you should definitly hit up the next focus revolution g2g once things start getting warmer.

I will keep that in mind. Last year I dropped off entirely because of life issues and didn't even log on here but I would like to be more active. Those are in Milwaukee I assume?

Today's Delivery:



Having no previous experience with anything under 45 series I had no idea these 35 series would be such rubber bands. I know there will be some loss of ride quality, I just hope it's not like riding a buckboard...lol

I also upgraded the fogs to SilverStar zXe H1's today and the SAP side markers to SilverStars as well. I already had SilverStar Ultra headlight bulbs, SilverStar front turn signal bulbs and SilverStar brake light bulbs (really freakin' bright!). All that's left to change out is my reverse lights, 3rd brake light bulbs and license plate lights. I'm going to change the license plate lights to SilverStar LED's.

Yes, I have an obsession with Sylvania SilverStars....lol

Today's Deliveries:


XCAL2, Verified Unlocked, Has tune for Header, Intake, and Exhaust, I loaded the tune just to make sure it was there and it also included TC disable and idle increase. Due to driveability issues and not having the mods installed I returned it to stock after a brief test drive.




F2 Header, Titanium Wrapped




K&N FIPK. Currently dealing with seller hopefully for partial refund as it was kind of falsely advertised; it came with a cheap Sceptre filter on it and the cover was ripped in a few places. I cleaned and oiled it with my K&N kit before install.




FIPK Installed:





SilverStar Ultra Headlights, SilverStar blinker bulbs, and SilverStar zXe fogs:
