Woow Hooo!!!
Put on new Michelin PS2s today!
Still a little greasy because of the cold and being a new tire but I was sick of chewing up my snows on all this dry pavement.

Besides if it snows again, I have 2 other vehicles to drive.

I'm at Erin Mills & Eglington but do go around Mavis near Heartland alot.
Yes my beast is dropped! The summer tires actually tuck in below the fender lip.
I just put back my 19" SSR GT3 rims so the RD rims are back in storage for another year.

I'm putting mine on March 25th 2005... car is getting polyurethene control arm bushings while i'm at it... AND slamming it to the floor, also tints and angel eyes ... all on the 25th,

if it snows again, i'll just keep it in the garage and take the TTC to work

if so, just park it.

I feel super ripped off, spend $200 on new coilover rings, $200 on having all 4 shocks taken off the car and cleaned... another $500 on winter tires...

and we've had maybe 6 or 7 days of real snow all year.

I need to find some centering rings, and then I'm putting the summers on.
