I"m looking to do something similar but maybe with 4" tips.

and would you recommend Super Muffler for their work/prices?
I bought the tips online. Yeah Ive been going to super muffler for awhile now. They do good work. Tell him Vincent with the LS430 sent you and he will hook it up

Was driving around today and my steering wheel kept shaking. The car would hop up and down everytime I drove. At first I thought it was a flat so I got out to check my tires and there was still plenty of air in it. Went to the tire shop to have them check it out. Guess what they found?

Learned my lesson. Never buying used tires ever again. And to think I thought I got a good deal too. Just thankful I wasnt on the freeway, in case it would have exploded.

damn dude thats a bunch of broken cords in the tire...wow. It would be scethy buying used tires especially if you going to stretch them. Also i just bought a set of 4 achilies and there were just under 400 shipped to my door and thats on east coast i think you can pick up a set locally in cali for 350! thats cheap, the ATRs work and last its been proven time and time again.

The tire in the picture is achilles. But to be fair all the new achilles ive bought have never turned out like this. I just saw a deal on craigslist for a used pair for like $50 and thought I got a deal. Guess not haha
