      haha if i didn't drive so much i'd rock max camber all day. putting on +20k this year with soft tires doesn't satisfy my wallet

      Edit: camber depends on if i'm happy how they sit once the tires are on, we'll see in a few weeks unless you wanna donate some rubberz

      yeah most likely. i'll be at sonic meet, waterfest (probably won't show), maybe cult classic, h20i, etc. I might hit the CEPA ones too depending what i have going on.


      CCWs are looking fly man, good choice

      Sonic Meet?

      I was referring to the CEPA ones... I didn't live here for most of the show season last year so I'll be attending most. WF hasn't been on my radar in a few years but since its not far away now I'll likely go and not show.

      Maybe they'll be for sale at the end of the season too, pick them up

      I'm in the same boat as SLC too with not wanting to run too much camber since I too drive a lot. Around 25k a year.

      Probably not or at least not this season. They're machined faces with a clear powdercoat

      Cool - I think I'd like to get a set of CCWs for my next wheels. That or LMs. Both look great.

      yes you'll need to run a spacer in the rear, and I suggest you run one up front. a 15mm in the rear and an 8mm or 10mm in the front would be good

      Not sure where else to ask this question, but where do you guys who deal with 2/3 piece wheels get your sealant? I want to reseal my TH-Lines since I have a leak in one of them.

      Thanks!

      any non-acid curing, adhesive RTV silicone will do the job. most auto parts stores carry them.
