      Couldn't be as low and as wide as I wanted. Really wanted it to sit at et9 while staying as low as i was and when I tried it with the 40 series tires they wouldn't even turn when I sat the car down. Rolled around at 8.5" et17 for a few weeks until I got the 35's and I honestly hated my car.

      35's are significantly smaller than a 40 and the 8mm less sidewall was enough clearance for me so I could turn. In my eyes it's perfect.

      It is .5% over the recommended 3% difference in my rears but **** it. I like the slight rake it gives the car while the fender to lip gap is the same

      9.5 all around wins every time.

      Before I sold my alphards I test fit the rears up front with a 20mm spacer and absolutely loved it

      I didnt crack the pan. The panzer plate actually saved my car. if you look carefully that rectangle gray piece is a road spike that is now impaled to my panzer plate

      Looks like the road shot a grappling hook in you . . . . thats some crazy **** right there. Were you in construction?? Why the hell was this in the road? Good thing it stopped there - coulda been worse right?
