Any other shots?. Are the tires flush or do they stick out?

They are flush with the quarter panels/fenders.

I'll upload some pics in a few.

I have the Eibach Pro kit springs that are about 1.25" drop and it sits perfect and handles great. If you had the wider wheels with same offset you have, it wouldn't work.

Come on scramberman you know me! The car was aligned to slightly modified UK specs right after :-)b

Thanks for the props! I'm still waiting on a picture of your car with the wheels.

How's the clearance when you're driving around? It doesn't look driveway friendly.

That Spoon metal knob must get hot in summer! I love the blue/blue theme - wish I fit into an S2K. :evil:

I don't know if you're looking to get them or not, but the RPF1 center caps will fit on your 17's. They're $25 each; I bought one to see why they don't fit on my 15's, and to see if they could be modded to fit, but it's not even close.
So if you're interested in center caps, let me know, and I'd be able to at least send you mine and save you $25. I didn't scratch the cap I bought - just holding it up to the center hole was enough to let me know that it's an impossible fit.

Not bad. Stock the car is low as crap, so I'm used to avoiding everything in the road. Now if I drove around like 16 year old chick it wouldn't last a day.

I'm a pro now when it comes to driveways since I had numerous headers and traction bars take a beating :lol:

A/C prevents that from happening :D

I wasn't planning to run center caps, but definitely thanks for offering! :-)b

I didn't mean to write "correct" but now I don't know what the word was before auto correct, if anything lol

But I really don't mind the Blue. I prefer it more than the all red

Love the car :bounce: , looking forward to seeing the hardtop, are you going to color match it to the car, or do a two tone?
