Still looks good though, a bit low for my tastes, but glad you like it. I'm still trying to justify getting coils because I only want a small drop.

oh... i wonder how i got messed up mixing up 701 and 713...

Yes and they ARE 713s

Maybe cuz 701s were under consideration as well... anyway loving these 713s for now


I thought about just the springs but i didnt like the ride of lowering springs (how they tend to get bumpy) only on my former car so i just thought why not go all the way with coilovers

265 would be almost stretched even.

considering 245mm is 9.5 inches.. on a 9.5" wheel, and flush is around 10.5" tire (aka 265mm)

my 245's have a LOT of stretch, your 235's would be retarded... 255 still stretches on and easily fits inside the guard.

ED: and 225 front, even without a 5mm spacer, 225 fits perfectly. if you want the same look, go 225 and drop to a 2-3mm spacer.

or at least go hard and do 205 all around or something ridiculous lol.. i've seen 205's on a 10" or 11" rim, it's so stupid and unsafe :P
Hey thanks for the advice I dont wanna do the fenders
but still im a fan of stretched tires (not too much though) so if 225 and 245 will be okay i might try next time...

yes 245 for rear. Chicago roads are harsh and tough so maybe next time could go with 245 for more safety

Cojones Yes on stock i definitely was going at higher speed in downtown but now Im more careful... I wonder if that could make me a safer driver in a sense...

I'm thinking about the calipers!! Maybe yellow or blue or red or something.
