      Everything is going well. Our little egg roll doubled her weight by week 15 and will probably start teething soon. She's really starting to come out of her shell and can get super chatty once she...

      Ok great thanks. They require ball seat so looks like I'm all set. :beer:

      For spacers, yes I understand. But if I decide not to add spacers, will the stock bolts be long enough for the wheel? I guess I'm just confused - because of the offset and wheel width I know they...

      So I pulled the trigger and went with a set of 18x8.5 ET43.

      Next rookie question - will I need to run longer bolts?

      You're probably right about 19's looking stupid high. Thanks for the advice on the spacers :thumbup:

      Hm even better. I just discovered the manufacturer has the same size but in et 43 option. Maybe I'll go with that instead and play things safe.

      That's ok, I can deal with the rougher ride.



      Yes. Though I'm toying with 215s for a more "square" look but not sure yet.

      Stock height. I may lower it down the road but not anytime soon. So if I don't apply the spacers at stock height I should be straight?

      19's for aesthetics, nothing special.
    9. Stepping out of my comfort zone and need feedback

      I plan on buying a new set this Spring and looking to change things up a bit. In the past I've always just gone the OEM+ route to keep things easy and simple but I'd like to upgrade to a custom set...

      They need to bring it in a new direction. Like stated above, we don't need another origin story. And frankly, I'm sick of Peter Parker. Bring in Miles Morales.
