    FWIW, it really does look good in person.
    Yeah, that will always be the affect on a +1 or higher. But that doesn't look bad like many I've seen. If the stockers were 19", I'd guess it'd look the same. Maybe a thread or 2 on the GCs, Randy?

    Re: Linea Corse Wheels Arrived

    Thought I heard some rubbing back there, so pulled over (still on blacktop) and reached around to the inside of the rear tire. (As background, when I had the SS brake lines installed, one line had been rubbing the inner lip of the OEM wheel, so I thought maybe that was occurring again.) I haven't backed up on my Rhino ramps yet, but from what I could feel, I'm not sure I could get a dollar bill to slip between the wheel and the trailing arm. It seemed that tight.

    As soon as it stops raining around here (in four more days), I'll do just that and post up some pics of the clearance there.

    I hear ya.

    I'm just a lowly assistant coach on my son's baseball team, and with double headers every Saturday morning, rain makeups on Mondays and practices on Wednesdays, life is busy.

    I wouldn't trade it for the world, though.

    We'll catch up ... some day.

    Nope, Rota/Linea Corse only made 3 sets (for bassillac, rand49er, and Sullyfx), then destroyed the molds to ensure that they would make no money off these.

    The month is almost over. Oh, what the heck ... I'll post up that pic.

    EDIT: Where the heck is that thread, anyway?

    Sorry, Nick ... I'm keeping them around. Mine have a few knicks and one has two or three inches of curb rash, so you wouldn't be upgrading anyway.

    Re: Linea Corse Wheels Arrived

    Backed the car up on the ramps and took the best pic I could. Hope this shows up okay.

    The good news is that they clear the trailing arm okay. The not-so-good news is that they don't clear by much ... maybe 3-4 mm (~1/8"). Saw no rubbing marks on inside lip of wheel.






    The larger of these two pieces of cardboard would not fit. The smaller did.

    Phew thats close Randy, but if doesn't rub in the corners or the bends you are all set.

    What are your alignment specs?

    I got hella rub on the passenger rear; think that side is close for everyone. I wonder if the difference comes from bushing breakdown?

    I'll post before and after pics when I install the new MAP trailing arms.

    The pic I posted is the passenger side, btw.

    Here's my alignment specs (from the faq):

    Aggressive Street Front:
    -1.0 degrees negative Camber
    As much Positive caster as you can get without sacrificing camber.
    Neutral (0) Toe to 1/32" Toe IN Each, 1/16" Total Max. [1/32" Toe in = +0.03 deg]

    Aggressive Street Rear:
    -1.5 degrees Negative Camber
    1/8" Toe IN Each, 1/4" Total Toe IN [1/8" Toe in = +0.12 deg] Rear Toe should never be Toe out (negative)


    All else being equal, stock camber on the rear is -0.5 deg compared with the -1.5 deg mine is suppose to have. That might be the difference between rubbing and not rubbing.


    Definitely want to see clearance with the MAP arms.

    Randy, those wheels look sweet in person. I hope you get sick of them soon so you can give them to me!
