LOL well its coming along slowly, yeah possibly we can get the faces and put the other two wheels together and seal them... And i think im ready for tires.. I think im gonna go with Falken 452s 225/40 rear 215/40 front.
Quote, originally posted by hexagone » what spec did you torque them down to?
BBS RS bolt torque is 22-25 lb/ft
Heres a little update.. im still waiting for two of the centers to get painted.. they should be ready today or monday.. then the other two wheels will be put together... I purchased both of the 225's for the rear and ordered two 215's for the front.. theyw ill be here on tuesday or wednesday... but i was a little curious of how much i would stretch and how to do it...
so here is the rear 10' with the Flaken 512 225/40/18
Well then after about 5 tries with starter fluid and fire and no success i had to go to the store and get some more starter fluid....
when i came back i walked in to the sound of an air compressor and the "PING"
My dad took a swing at it, even though he thinks stretching tires is stupid... he did his own SAFE WAY... haha he took industrial zip ties, linked them together around the middle groove of the tire and with a cordless powerdrill started to tigthen.. The middle of the tire pressed down and the sides to flare out. Then with all the sides sealed he shot air into the wheel through the valve and the sidewalls expanded onto the wheel... Cut the zip tie and done..
The tire stretched right before the zip tie broke.

im liking the 512s alot.. they are pretty aggressive, good price, and they stretch nicely molding to the inside of the lip

im waiting for the 215/40/18 to arrive from california for the front, but then it will be straight to the body shop so i can have them work my fenders around the wheels
Quote, originally posted by OWENthatsmyname » do a test fit for us w/ the rears on haha.
Yes i will probably tomorrow.. haha even without the tire and the test fit they stuck out quite a bit... but thats what fender molding is for
well today was a nice sunday, beautiful weather so i decided to polish the hexagons. aircraft stripped them, then sanded from 400-2000 grit then with a polishing wheel black rouge then green rouge and finished with some mothers polish.. they came out great.
