And here are the pics for now. +35 rear +45 front, 235 35 19 Hankook Ventus Evo's, no fender roll...no adjustment of tein SS from the stance I had with the aspecs...running about -.5 rear camber and -1.3 front camber. Rode with 4 people last night (given, the 2 in the back weren't huge) and not even the slightest bit of rubbing. Yay.
A lot of people showed interest in these when 03cu1 was selling them, but they sat on that thread for 9 months. I saw the price drop from 1500 to 1300 to finally ending up at 1100 plus ACTUAL ship. Glad I didn't pass it up...I love how stealthy and mean the car looks. I've never wanted to have black wheels, but this changed my mind.

looks sweet!! he could always get spacers down the road if he wants to sit more flush...next mod with a brake upgrade and some bigger discs to fill up that empty space?? that will be my next mod (wilwood BBK) for my car
thought about brakes etc...but I think this mod will hold me over for quite a while! lol...yeah, if I decide I wanna go more flush I'll do some spacers, just didn't wanna get any more involved with having to roll fenders or anything.
Thanks for the compliments all...I have an 04 so NOT type s, just have the tail and sidemarkers. It is 6 speed though.
Will try and set up some pics with a nicer backdrop soon...I swear...I really never thought I'd go for black wheels...but I'm really happy I did...was watching the car in the reflection on a truckers hubcap and MAN does it look mean and nice!
LOVE the stealth theme! Im same boat as you, bought some TEs and realized the prices on centercaps and lugs were insane lol! I went ahead and bought the center caps, dont think Im buying lugs. Im about to just spray paint my lugs with duplicolor metalcast blue. Basically what you did. I wouldnt mind getting $200 lugs BUT with the regular lugs people could just steal them with a 19mm socket so I'd always have to worry about where I park. Only reason to use them is for meets, which honestly I think is dumb to have to change lugs each time. Anyways long post sorry.. nice car
Thanks man, no problem!
About the lugs, they were my gorilla locks, I had paid 40 shipped...I had bought them blue, then painted black and in using goof off to take off the black, I made them completely chrome again. Duplicolor metalcast is what I used and it worked like a charm, just keep doing light coats until you get the blue to look kinda like the valvestem!
I am really in LOVE with the look of the car now...seriously. I sometimes think, dang you can't see the detail of a black wheel...but at the price I paid, I couldn't go wrong. and when I saw it rolling today and even standing still it just looks so aggressive. Totally me!
The honey, huh...lol...sounds good!
Again, thanks for all the compliments guys!
Yeah, I looked back in the backseat and thought that pic was pretty cool. I was so in love with the wheels just picking them up with tires on them!
Thanks man, very much.
No sir, no plans. I have stage 3 right now, I hate drone, I hate loud exhausts and I really don't like how any other tips look any better than the factory bumper hole opening ones.
