Default $3000 + Spent (The build up has started)

Hey all,

I have just splashed down on a few goodies for my car. I have done it fairly cheaply and have chosen the parts accordingly


1) Leon Hardiritt Ritter Type 2 19 inch wheels

19x9 +24 (brand new 235/35 Neuton 3000's, 6 weeks old)
19x10 +24 (cambered 245/35 Sumitomo's)

Tyres will be removed, wheels sanded, polished and painted where nessecary


PS the picture of the rims on the ls400 is just to show them on a car.


2) BC racing coilovers (only chose this as its pretty cheap for australia)

3) Ltuned parts toms eyelids

What does everyone think this will do to a stock 2001 black on black ls430

Understandable, esp if you want to keep your car's spotless reliability.

Parts have arrived peeps.. Suspension going in 2 days, wheels in 5 days.

The panel shop wants to have the wheels on the car before he shaves my rear fenders. I guess its a good way to do it.

Hows this.

I currently have 235 35 19 on the front +24 offset with 15mm spacers.

I have 2 options

1) move 235 45 19 to rears and stick 225 or 215 19 45 on fronts (9 inch rim) or just get 245 35 19 on the rears.

How much difference does tyre size make for scrubbing etc considering i have 19s with a +9 offset.

Rims look to be about half an inch outside of the guards on the rear. Is that the 10's you've fitted to the rear with 15mm spacers? What're your current alignment specs?


Justin...

p.s. I'm in NSW as well...

Well. i have decided to sell the rims. The rears are +24 on 10 inch rim. They dont stick out that much and will go in with lowering and camber.

The fronts on the other hand 15mm spacers plus 9 inch rim with 24mm offset looks like this lol
