      Yeah i almost made it....i guess theres a reason why everyone said not to stretch nankangs. we were switching lanes and the ass just dumped and starting swaying. we instantly pulled over and noticed what happened. we used the stock jack to get the wheel off and after the gotti was off the stock jack blew over and my car smacked the guard rail..not that bad at all though..overall the car will be fine again. Dave and his friends are bringing down wheels for me and i just need to figure out wtf im going to do now.

      Sell the Gottis or go down to 9.5 lips. Get larger tires....I can't believe you were running a 205 on a 10" wheel. I'm running a 205 on an 8.5" wheel and sometimes my fender pulls the tire off the bead and it leaks....when I get new tires going up to a 215/40.

      I'm not technically "slammed", but I am lowered. I drove from NY to Myrtle Beach last year, drove while down there for over a week, and drove back. Got my low oil pressure warning light maybe 5 min from my house, on my drive back. Talk about good timing. Dropped oil pan, replaced pick up tube, placed in oil pressure gauge (not trying to have this happen to me again), and have a healthy engine (can see over 100psi of oil pressure on start up). Anyways, pic of my ride height.

      I don't own the car anymore, but the furthest was to h20 last year. Took 10 hours (supposed to take 4) due to Poor planning and traffic. About 180-200 miles. Ftg was 22.25"





      Don't think I ever posted that photo. Shadow ruined it

      RI to Killington VT, about 4 hours or so. That's been the longest so far. H2O will be the next longest and I plan to bring it down to Virginia in a couple of weeks. About 24" GTF

      Sounds brutal, but I really don't. Maybe because it was so slow. Mk5 is stage 2 currently..planning to have my high pressure fuel pump rebuilt by APR and go stage 2+ in a few weeks. Such a blast to drive. I guess I got tired of the show & no go aspect of my b5

      I still love looking at them though. Such a classy sedan. I will never get tired of looking at them

      I gotta agree, my friend picked up a mk5, and every time we roll in it I get mad because that **** is stupid quick compared to the b5.

      I think my attention span may have stayed with the b5 had I had gotten a 1.8t. I didn't really have many goals for the car other than looks. Once it looked the way I wanted I got bored fast. The looks aspect gets old. More to a car than how low or shiny the wheels are(not that I don't like low and shiny). Little more fun to be had with a tuneable/buildable motor.
