PostSubject: New rims, tires, and a decision to make    Sun Jun 27, 2010 2:17 am

Finally got my N97s mounted (one of my old tires had a catastrophic failure) The new tires are general 225/70s, i think their a great fit.

Im thinking of lowering it on impala springs, but every other time i look at it i change my mind, to me it has an old-school muscle car stance kind of sitting up, but it would almost tuck tire if i lowered it. I just dont want it to rub anywhere. I could leave the suspension alone and get some bigger exhaust tips.... or start saving up for tints.... or.... scratch any thoughts?

please blatantly ignore the fact that i have no front center caps, my rims didnt come with enough bolts to put them all on. Anyone know where i can get more?

I think the current ride height works better with the taller profile tires, especially if you went back to stockers for the winter or anything like that.

I thought mine would look weird with the SS wheels and tires on there and stock springs, but it looks fine and I actually prefer the way it looks now (on my car anyway), I don't think I'd lower it!

Either way, I'd devote cash to other things you want to do first, you can always lower it later on if you want.

When was the last tune up? If needed, tend to the small stuff 1st. Nice tips btw. (no homo)
