Default Pic of your SC430 RIGHT NOW!

A former member by the name of Dat created one of these threads in the LS460 forum and also one in the IS forum. Since the price of the SC430 is now in the range many people can afford I predict many many more members coming in. Some to keep it stock and some to modify. I personally bought one in November with the sole purpose to daily drive but first modify for Sema 2015. As the thread title lends, post a pic of your car RIGHT NOW...no matter what...don't pose it for a perfect picture...go out, snap a pic wherever it may be and post it here! Also any pics of recent modifications would be cool too.

I have the tourmaline wheels on my black/ecru SC430. IMO, some of the best money I have spent on the car (second only to getting rid of the RFTs).

I cannot wait to have them installed...just waiting to get a few more bugs worked out of the car before I get to the mod items. Then I need to choose tires...what tires did you install and do you like them?

It's called "get me the hell out of Jersey" huge monster snow shovel. We have another foot coming tomorrow....getting sick of this "Global Warming" crap. Time for a snow blower because my new home has this driveway to deal with....

OMG,
You do that by hand
A Northerner's lament,
I'm going to put that THING on my shoulder and walk south until someone askes; "What's that on your shoulder"?

Bgw,

Being your in Florida I highly recommend Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. I have these on my 2008 SC430. They ride great, have good wet traction and are quiet and Smooooooth. They are also not directional so you can cross them when you rotate.

I had ContinentalExtremeContact DWS(Ultra High Performance All-Season) on my 2007. They are directional so when rotating you must keep them on the same side of the car. They also flat spotted if the car sat for two days or more. It had horrible wheel shaking for up to 5 miles until the tire got warm enough to became round again.

BTW, the Tourmalines are great. I had them on my wife's silver 2007 SC430. I traded that car in on a New Ford pickup. I didn't have time to swap them with my OEM rims on the 2009 SC430.
