New shoes
I got my new shoes on Saturday. I didn't even hear the Fed-Ex truck while I was soaking up the rays. I purchased some 5Zigen FN01R-C in hyper black from Kozz Tuning. All I can say is amazing wheel, an amazing price due to Vitek at Kozz Tuning. Center caps, lug nuts, valve stems, and hubcentric rings included upon my request. I'm glad I didn't spend twice that on Volks again. I'm very pleased and need to e-mail him pronto. But anyways, I only have 1 so-so pic. My driveway was full and couldn't get a better one. If someone wants I will take more Monday. I need to paint my calipers and hats, I know. Soon, my next project I'm also running the ricer of all ricer tires, Nitto Neo Gen. More on that after the pic.

About the tires. I haven't pushed them yet. I have pushed them probably the most here will and I could only compare them with my previous tire, Pirelli Assimetrico. The Pirreli's were a tank. Would take a beating over and over, like a house wife and her husband with a 20 year old alcohol problem. Wet or dry those tires just went. The only problem is they wore out in less than a year. So far I'm pleased with the Nittos. They are bigger 215 40 as opposed to 205 45, which helps. They do make a bit of noise while cruising probably due to the low aspect ratio. 215 40 in a 17" is perfect and is shorter than even a stock 15" tire and wheel size. So far I haven't seen any wear from tires that have been sitting in my basement for like 6 months. They grip good too. I can't say about the wet because it hasn't rained here yet. When I get the final OK on my coilovers, the sways (maybe), and the much needed alignment, I will push those tires and my car to the extreme and get back to you. Along with the overdue pics of the coilovers. So far for $400 flat for the tires, I'm happy. If you want more pics of the Tein SSP, the wheels, a 215 40 17" tire w/a drop, or whatever I will take more upon request.

I'm the #1 customer to Pimp UP - UPs and way UPs MAN. That's the finest selection around in the Tri-State.
