I finally got the time to get some stuff done today, and I snapped some pics to share. First, I did the Stage 1 brake upgrade from Purems, and I absolutely love the look and feel so far. It absolutely changes the way the 19's look on the car, and now I think it looks proportional.

I put the 19's on, since it's finally not snowing, and polished them up. I know the style isn't what most of the people on this forum have or like, but I think they look great on my car.

Finally, I swapped out the spark plugs with some NGK BKR7E's to replace the Bosch Super Platinums. I guess the previous owner thought they were the best plugs he could have gotten, but they were fouled up pretty bad when I pulled them out. Didn't get pics of those, but they weren't in good shape.

I snapped a shot of the exhaust tips after I polished those too.

Anyway, I know there's a few more things I need to do before it looks complete. First on the list is getting a new suspension system so I'm not Tonka truck'n it anymore. Second is probably doing the clear corners, and either painting the lowers or getting the Rieger kit. Enjoy!

Bigger actually... That thing was at SEMA I think, along with a Lincoln on chromed out 30's on top of a Bronco frame. I hope that's not what mine looks like.

I think your tire are too wide....are you using spacers ??
The wheels look good but ...it does make your ride seem rather high....

I'm not using spacers, but I actually thought the same thing at first. The rears are tucked under the fenders nicely, but the fronts stick out a little. Here's a pic I took of the front tire sticking out.

I'm running 235/35/19's, so it's probably the spacing of the wheels that make it look too wide.

It looks higher than it probably is due to the black lowers.

So after a couple days of driving on the freeway and around town, it seems the car is running a lot rougher after I put in the BKR7E's in. From an easy 3k-5.5k pull, it seems to not want to get up and go like before. The MPG is a bit off as well, giving me about 2-4 less MPG driving in similar conditions. I have the 19's on now, which I'm sure accounts for a little bit, but I wouldn't think it would affect it that much. Any ideas?
