      Flat army green could be sweet!! If they're 5x112, I don't remember corvette bolt pattern's, you'll need a pretty big spacer in front and rear. A 30mm in the rear would put it at ET31 which would be nice and then front 25mm would put it at +31, might want the offset a little lower though, but I dont even know if it's safe to run that big of a spacer up front.

      Also, based off what I've just looked up it's looking like 56 and 61 are the offsets on those sizes for sure, which you already know.

      thanks bud. yah a for sale thread said et58 front and et65 rear so i was a little confused. think im gunna try for final offsets of like et30 front and et20 rear. should be interesting to say the least..

      gunna need to get a real fender roller this season haha. that metal pipe last year was too ghetto.

      that might need some pulling in the rear with a 9.5 at et20. I'm doing et30 in the rear with my 9.5, for example, still have to get spacers though.

      I cannot wait to see these on. They look awesome on some of those mk4s. I personally vote for army green, I think it'll compliment real nicely on the silver. Polish wouldn't be my favorite...

      And I'm glad to see so many people running the fcp groton kit. I'm gonna order mine soon

      Alright heres the story followed up with some pics. I had done the rear end the other night(pics above) and that **** was a breeze.

      So yesterday morning i get started on the front end with the help of a couple buddies of mine. Let me tell you, it suckeddddddd. Every freakin step was a hassle. Seized bolts, snapped bolts, bolts that wouldnt thread. Everything was a problem. Not to mention i think 034motorsport sent me the wrong strut mounts. No way in hell those were going to work.

      to top it off i get in my car to go to work this morning and terrible squilling grind noise as soon as i start to roll. turns out i put 2 wheel studs in too far and was scraping against the hub AND i put the rear lower contraol arms on the wrond side..FML tonight also sucked.

      andddd my brandy new front hotchkis bar was too big for me to put my ghetto skid plate on after...so thats going up in the classifieds. Id rather be low then sweeping corners.

      thats all for now.
