      Opposite of this.

      Sorry, just not a fan of the whole tow hook thing. A little JDM for me. (the 'beener makes it worse!)

      Nice job thus far. Not a big fan of the tow hook/light but I am a big fan of those wheels. What size tire/adapter are you going to use?

      I went with a 155 60 15. Adapters are 1inch in the front and 1.25inch in the rear. I like the stance but I do wish the wheels were wider and maybe out just a hair more in the rear. Washed the car today and took some pics which will be up soon

      I would have gone with 195 45 15. Unique look though. Did you paint the tails or is there some kind of block off plate over them?
