      Mostly for the track: Neuspeed RSe07 18x8 ET45 with Dunlop ZII Star-spec tires in 235/40R18. Black McGard locking lug bolts are sitting on my workbench, and the rest of my black lug bolts are coming from USP Motorsports on Tuesday. Those cute little plastic covers are not going to like getting really hot and I won't want to mess with taking them on and off for events)

      Rse07 18" with BFGoodrich Comp2. Surprisingly only 2lbs lighter than stock wheel tire combo.



      BTW, Need more pics and less talk in this thread!

      Yes, wheels are 4lb lighter, but my tires are apparently 2 lbs heavier. The stock Cadiz 19s are only about 23lbs

      18x8 et45 gunmetal with 235/40/18 tires. The diameter is only 1mm larger than the stock setup, so no difference really. Much smoother ride on the crappy city streets.

      It's pretty much an equivalent size for the stock 19" tires, so it's as perfect a fitment as you're going to get. I agree, the ride improved enormously over the stock 19s, and that is despite my running fairly harsh riding, noisy tires (since my goal was performance and not ride comfort).

      Love that grey color. That was my second choice. I actually saw a grey R on a car carrier leaving the port of Houston as I was on my way to pick up my vehicle.

      Your buddy sucks, I hate him. HREs are so nice -- those aren't my favorite style, but they look great.

      That being said, the brakes are even nicer... wowza. Stock size discs I assume?

      I believe they are 330mm rotors, they come in the BBK.

      Yeah you are right they are 355. I was looking at the wrong kit and was too lazy to do the math.

      That drop is perfect!!! Are the VWR springs similar?... I just ordered them since I've read a lot about the harsh ride with H&R.

      Those wheels!!!! perfect!

      Might you be able to find out which H&R springs? I'm a few clicks away from ordering the VWR springs this evening and these sit absolutely perfect. Not too high, not too low...
