Default My Wheels Are Installed *pics inside*

Hey guys, finally got my tires in and the wheels are now on the car! The tires are OK im not totally impressed with the grip.. i was to be honest expecting a lot more, but at the same time you gotta heat them up for them to get tacky and i have yet to tune my suspension. One thing i did notice however is that my car rides much smoother now, my assumption is that the old tires were absorbing a lot of shock and bouncing up and down like an undampened spring, but now these tires with stiff sidewalls are letting the JIC's do all the work. Naturally the car is much much slower due to the fact that falkens are very heavy tires and the mags aren ot the smallest lightes on the market either. The added width adds drag which also slows me down a LOT. The RSM used to read 260ps now it reads 240ps.. terrible!

So here are the pics:

Very nice. The offset is excellent! I've been thinking about getting a ~'93 240sx hatch or trunk version (to get HUD). IMO, among the best look is a the white hatch, like yours, but black on top.
