Whooppi! New RIMS/Wheels/DROP! [PICS]
Wheels are RSL Mase 18" (RH Z5000 replicas)
Tires are Hankook 215/35/18
Spring are Goldlines 1.75"

I got wheels/springs + installation, and car aligned for total of $1,300, which I thought was a pretty good deal. I'm pretty happy with the result (especially since I waited 2 years for this mod!!). tasty

The ride is pretty smooth; i dont feel any difference. The only one thing is when drivin thru pot-holes, it does feel rough ... so i got to drive thru them slow now.

What you guys think???

Thanks for the propz guys!

I dont have my receipt handy, but for those interested ... i'll post the price breakdown when I have it available.

Yeah, I know the tires are thin ... I didnt quite know they would be that thin, since I didnt know much about tires specs when I placed my order. Oh well. You guys dont like thin tires?

The Springs were $110

I'm out of cash right now ... so i wont do any mods for quite a few months.

FUTURE PLANS:
-
body kit (possibly Kaminari)
interior mods (not sure what yet)
-
I'm REALLY HAPPY with my car now wink

exactly, the tires are soo thin and the rim spokes are also so thin that it gives the impression that you're rolling on 19s or dubs. grin
