      Installed a Deka ETX18L with Odyssey SAE Gold Terminals. 18 lbs battery vs. holy crap this is heavy stock battery.

      Then I raised the rear up, since my ride height changed with my new wheels and tires.

      I am now sitting at 24 1/4" FTG in the front and 24 5/8" in the rear.

      Whenever I see a car with aftermarket wheels the same size as stock ones I think one of the following:
      1. The car was involved in an accident and the wheels were damaged and they went "cheap" and replaced the OEM wheels with aftermarket ones.

      2. OEM wheels were stolen and they went the cheap route and bought aftermarket ones to replace them.

      1. They are +1 size
      2. They are not cheap replacements.
      3. They are light weight, well made, and have sticky rubber on them to match.

      Ride quality should be nice at least, same as mine with stock 17" Portos. Can't wait to get rid of my 17s though for something bigger.

      Looking good!!!

      Not to thread jack but, I took delivery of my CW JSW 6 speed last night to join the JSW family! Love it so far! It's not my sold R32 but, fun in its own way. Hoping to do some type of shock/springs with some rims next summer (no point to switch them out now with winter approaching) to make it more fun in the twisties.

      I've been stalking your thread (& anything nikhsub1 does to his JSW) for inspiration.

      That is the most ridiculous thing I have read in a long time.

      My wheels with spacers put me at ET42 with 225's... I had to have my alignment guy go -2.0 in the rear... could really go a bit more I still hit the rear fender liner over bumps.

      I am ET48 and have shaved liners so I am good.

      Drove to Chattanooga today through the GA Scenic Highway. Super fun! This thing handles perfectly now.

      I live in the mountains and drive through the twisties every day, and I can tell you with experience the JSW handles very well after a bit of love in the aftermarket department.

      I love my Whispbars. Granted, I also don't have a pano roof, but I love how flush they sit.



      So flush, you can't even see them in this picture.

      I need to post a better shot of them.

      Ruh wrooh posts disappearing in my thread.

      Whisper bars are nice! I take my rack off though when it isn't in use, so it works well enough.
