I've got stuck *** Tein HA's that I'm gonna probably break the collars off of and buy new ones for since I tried for 3 days straight to loosen them with EVERYTHING possible and they won't budge haha.

And there is no pulling of the fenders, the rears can probably go way low with like 2* of camber, the front will need like 2-3* of camber.

As far as the ricer thing, it's just cause its for style, not function. I figured someone will give me **** about the DORI DORI fitment of 18x10s and skinny *** 225's on the front and only 245's in the rear. But I forgot, this is clublexus, not Supraforums or the other forums I'm on.

And thanks! I really like your car's wheels fitments JDMmuscle... it was one of the cars I was lookin to see what you had for offset/tire/pull.


ANNDDDDDDDD i'd like to say to the people talking about Rota's quality and power.... go look at all the high horsepower Evo8,9,10s with Rotas that road race and drag race. If they can drive around making 500+whp ... I'm sure a 180whp Sc300 will be fine. Even a 500whp SC300 should be plenty fine . I'm worried about the mega tire stretch and the potholes in my city, that's all.

I gueess he ment ricer because he knows people will bag on his wheel brand rotas. A lot of sti people run rotas when they track. Everyone is just shows a picture of the broken rota wheel and that's it. I can't justify the cost of the wheels I want either. The wheels that I was cost nearly as much as the car maybe even more

anyways thanks for the info

I use to believe this also.. and I was running sportmax rims because of this thinking for a while, but if this was true then adding any mods in general wouldnt be worth it as the car isnt worth much correct? (engine swap/bodykit/even a new paint job would be around 3k~)

The car is worth as much as you value it yourself. You lose when you sell but with cars thats a given. In my eyes my car deserved $3k volks... because i was willing to spend $400 on a lip.. $1000 on BPU.. etc.. etc.. but not on rims? didnt seem fair for my car.

Well I'd say your car's a different story, haha. If you're gonna go the whole mile with extensive mods, I'd say definitely get some nice wheels. If you're just gonna drive it N/A daily like me with potholes and the potential to bend/scratch/break the wheels, don't get expensive wheels cause I was looking into Work T1S's but yea... I'm not doing anything to this car other than driving it.

Thanks! Your car looks way good too. I wish I could lower mine more right now to get the same stance.

Updated the first post with more pics of closer shots and how high it is.

Me too. I hate seized coilovers. The worst part is that I don't have time to even keep trying to unseize them. Having a life is getting in the way

take them off and get the coilover wrench and put a lacross bar on there, that should break it free. If not, get some BC coilovers they on sale : )

Looks great all I have to ask is where did you buy em from? The one place I know that sells the grids only goes up to 9.5" wide
