      Finally posting up pictures of my winter/daily driver, some of you may have saw it this past weekend. Just got it reprayed and decided to put some wheels on it.

      Enjoy

      Looks good. I like the wheels and ride height is good especially for a daily.

      This guy is an idiot.... Perfect stance regardless of daily or not (maybe the back just a hair). The J-Lines are the nicest 1 piece wheel out there. This is a super nice daily. Only suggestion would be a new lip but other than that, this thing is spot on.

      Haha thanks Lee!

      The wheels are Jlines for who ever is wondering.

      The car does need to be lowered in the sense I think the rear is too high I'll have to bring the rear down but I'll have to roll the rear 1/4s first.

      The car still needs a little bit of odds and ends but it was all original when I got it. The car was basically a one owner car since 96 up until this past august when I purchased it. It's a fun and was always a car I wanted since I was middle school, it just took me to be in my mid 20's when I finally purchased one.

      I figured they were JLines, like the ones Sean had on his blue VRT

      Wheel and tire specs please?
      And what coilovers are you on?

      The car is on ultra lows.

      I believe these where seans actual wheels which since then have been modified to fit stock fenders.
