      they never actually attempted to mount and balance them. they all just guessed. the guy at the second place we talked to actually suggested doing that. i guess he was the closest to being right.

      I have no idea, my only guess is because none of the other places ever tried to actually mount a tire and balance the wheel. They put just the rim on the machine and said.."it's bent". Then my buddy didn't think that you could actually tell whether a wheel will balance out or not if you don't actually try it, so he took them into work today and they all balanced out right away. I live in a small town and a lot of people don't seem to know about stretching tires so maybe they just didn't want to do them. The one barrel you can tell has a little bend on the lip, but I will pay someone if they can look at the wheel and point it out. It's nothing that shouldn't have kept it from balancing out.

      I am still messing with spacer sizes and the ride height still has to be changed, but here's a teaser I guess, since I'm waiting for one more wheel to put them on.


      not much here but still a picture...

      Yeah pictures seem to make them look white, but they're "vanilla"...totally different. It actually looks like the ice cream color.

      The guy who mounted them is doing the same set up on his saw blades. I can take pics of the stretch on mine if you'd like.

      Colin what spacers are on in the pics? IMO it needs to be a little more spaced out in the rear unless going lower will fix the optical illusion, but damn it's looking good!

      I swear your car looked lower than that when we met up on Sat.

      it does look lower with the stock wheels. the stretch makes it so he needs to lower the car a lot more. in person i really like the way the wheels sit but the car needs to come down. i know colin plans on bringing the rear down a lot more.

      Paul, in the front I'm rockin your 12s the rear are brads 16's. I'm going to try your 25s in the rear but that will probably be too much so I might go with my original plan of 20, depending how it looks dropped more. Then I'll try brads 16s up front. It looks a toonn lower on stock wheels. Cool if I use a set of your spacers for sat, assuming my valve stem shows up in time?

      i think if you push it out more you're going to get the poke you aren't wanting.

      Hell yes it is, if you don't I'll have to smack you

      I think the 16's might make you rub when turning into parking lots & 25's in the rear will be perfect, well according to the pics anyways, I'd have to see it in person & moar lower, I can't wait to see it this weekend

      We had the annual Dubs At The Dunes (DATD) up here in Northwest Indiana this past weekend and here are some pics of my car with the RS's finally on them. All of the pictures were taken by Keith (Tifun).
