Dude the Advan GT wheels look friggin amazing...great choice.

A couple of questions as follows:
1) These pictures are with you dropped on Swift springs...correct? And I think I remember they were black...are they Spec R's?

2) If you would have gone 255/30/20 tire in the front do you think you would have rubbing (saw you post on front rubbing)?

I am currently looking at the Advan along with Volks and just trying to figure out the best setup...thanks and great build thread!!!

Thanks for the update and I understand why you went 35 profile...I was just wondering (and I guess you would not know for sure unless you tried it) if 30 profile would not rub with that offset?

I take your word that you're experiencing rubbing issues...But this is just confusing because you're on STOCK height as well. We're running the same specs of WHEELS; However, the RC-F has much more aggressive fender wells then the GS-F...

I'm running 265/35 & 305/30 and I'm dropped Zero rubbing on fender wells....Just upper liners, but RANDOM...

Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the RR-R tune and header upgrade!

I bet and glad everything worked out to your liking with the headers and tune. Very nice "F".

Now I know this is subjective but how loud is your car now with the PPE and Borla? I had the Sikky/Joe Z setup on my ISF and it was insane loud. Don't get me wrong...it sounded good and drew a lot of attention at meets but not so good for DD.

Just curious on how your setup turned out... thanks
