Alright so everyone was hating on my 4x4 status and, despite it being the winter, i decided to bite the bullet and slap on some neuspeed race springs and slam it into a snowplow in an almighty effort to shut everyone up. Comment to you hearts content please. Also, forgive the atrocious blackberry picture quality.

Y'all drank the kool aid on my wheels huh? lol i like the silver and black theme, i dont know why. im slapping on some black ones for my winter setup so i'll throw those pictures up soon. they're a neuspeed 2" straight down drop, so they are lower than most coils out there.

you rub when you turn? looks amazing I might have to do that myself.. if there is rubbing I will have to go higher than you... Looks great though. Gotta agree though, powdercoat them bitches

the lower is pretty sketchy, not gonna lie lol speedbumps are precarious at best. it rides pretty smooth, but rub noise is at a minimum. i keep turning my stereo down because i think i hear stuff, but its mostly paranoia.

ya once you get into notching things I get a lil sketched out.. too many horror stories from my friends bagged trucks... rubbing is more of an annoying thing than something to worry about. Congrats again looks sick!

What struts are you running?

Looks good, no idea how your rubbing though unless you have some beast tires. I have the same springs with bilsteins and 245/35/17 tires et 40 wheels and have not rubbed once in 6 months.

wtf you drankin ?
2" is not lower then ANY coilover can go
if you are rubbing, then you need to change tire size, or offset
you are no where near needing to cut stuff to go lower
ball joints binding ?

just my thoughts, if you want to act like you are slammed as hell, then atleast make it look lowered.

Yeah, totally misstated that lol by coils i meant springs. No way springs will drop more than coils man, i'm not a retard. And it cant be that slammed, i live in RI and all of our infrastructure money goes to the house's community coke bowl and mob bosses. It winter, anyways, so i wasnt going too aggressive. Im just not 4x4 like before, but thanks for the vicious unwarranted attack [:p]

It has tint all around bud. Even the sidemarkers are tinted. I'm picking up some winter rims that i like a little better, but they're only 16s so idk what i'm going to do in the summer. MAybe i'll have the machined silver parts powdercoated? would that clean it up and quit all this hate haha

Needs a little lower profile of tire (along with different rims) and some paint on your lowers. I think painting the lowers (same color as car) would make it look MUUUUCH better.

..just my two cents

Haha yeah man like i said, RI has some of the shittiest roads in the country and i like in the middle of farmland so its like a lose-lose for lowers. I'm buying some notched bilsteins in the spring so i'll be much lower in the spring/summer when i slap on my hankooks.

As for the wheels, what does everyone think about just powdercoating the machine finish parts black? Or what color would look best if i was to have them professionally done? My buddy Dave has a paint shop so i cna mostly do whatever i want...

soundspeedstyle
11-14-2009, 06:07 PM
black

tar
11-14-2009, 07:39 PM
Your only color that would work with those wheels would be black, and since you have the whole silver and black theme you might as well. Personally i would just sell those and buy some different wheels.

I'm thinking of going back to my stock rims after some cleanup on the aluminum. I'll post pics after i have them mounted to see if they look better. Definitely having the rims powdercoated in the spring, though.

Haha I'm just giving you a hard time man. I've never been a huge fan of them but they aren't bad. I would do black though. The black on the silver never looks bad to me ... or at least something dark.

Yeah i agree. When i first bought them i liked them a lot and people who see the car in person think they look good, even at shows and shit. Im starting to see what everyone is saying though haha, they are a little much. I wanted to do enkei ekm3's originally but they weren't right. I really want a photoshop on them to see how they look blacked out.

11-16-2009, 07:37 PM
Im going to be honest...de-tint the tails and headlights and move toward a more stock wheel and it would look cleaner. You mentioned enkei's ...check out the enkei RPF1's[up]
