Finally Mounted My New Wheels & Tires

Ok so I just got my wheels and tires mounted. I'm running Falken RT 615 K on the Axis Halo 8.5 front with a 225/40/18 with a 45 offset and a 9.5 rear with a 265/35/18 and a 50 offset. Raised the car 1/2 inc for a total of a 2inc drop with -2.5 camber in the rear. Only other mod needed to make this work other then the SPC camber bolts was a relocation of the bumper bolt.

I don't know if I would have gone black, but it look pretty bad ass. What's the weight on these rims?

Front is 19.8lbs and the rear is 20.3lbs.

The black matches all my flat black emblems and will match all the carbon accents I have planned for the future.

Looks wicked. What's next carbin hood and trunk would look sick! A friend of mine went carbin nutz on his s2000 and did the doors, fenders and both bumpers.

I have run these tires before and they really aren't as bad as everyone thinks. What is bad in the rain is the Toyo R888.

With yellow, black is definitely the way to go. Looks sharp with the time attack stripe.

I want the APR front carbon lip the Downforce DF-R Carbon Rear Diffuser and side slats the BYS carbon spoiler and a J's Racing hood. So like $5000 later it will all match...LOL

I'm more concerned right now with performance stuff over carbon I think for this year I'm done might get the spoiler cause I found one really cheap. Next spring the plan is for n/a cams and an AEM and tune and to finish off my exhaust skunk2 header for sure and then we will see what else I can afford...lol

A girl with a plan, gotta love it!

Lorrie wants a ride in your car, but not sure if she'll be able to for a while, she busted 2 ribs preping for her fire arms training, she undersetimated the kick back on an air charged 12 guage simulator last week, "since when has a simulator actually kicked like a real gun??"

Ya looks so dirty now...well it was more dirty when the camber was all nuts before the "proper" alignment at www.can-alignment.com

Lets see the pics when it was 1/2-inch lower with -5 degrees in the back and -3 in the front!

Steering is definitely more heavy but the car is more planted, less twitchy and has stupid grip now. Just what it needed. Even though the tires are more aggressive, the ride is smoother and quieter..the OE Bridgestones had their day!

Definetly wanna give a big shout out to Jay (Mystical) and Mike (Zimmie) at Stance Factory for setting up the car. They installed the front and rear camber bolts, rolled the fenders and mounted and balanced my new tires. Got me out in time for the long drive to Can-Alignment to get the car corner balanced and aligned properly.

I definetly recommend checking out both shops and their web sites they are the ONLY places that will touch my cars.
