    I'm glad Tire Rack is doing testing now. Here's the review you were talking about (don't forget to click the "Test Result Charts" tab):

    I would also note that their sample size is tiny, and filled with old tires. But it's a good start.

    No I havent mounted or gotten rubber yet. Switched jobs, less cash flow...heading back to the oil patch soon to get back on the mod wagon!
    I got a bunch of quotes from different places around but tire rack is beating them all. I was considering some pirellis...but time will tell. This weekend ill be installing kw coilovers and hotchkis sways!

    Looks good. Next time you clean the wheels, I highly recommend applying one or two layers of Blackfire Wet Diamond All Metal Sealant for scratch resistance and to help keep brake dust from hardening on the finish. That particular polymer blend has a higher temperature rating than Blackfire Wet Diamond All Finish Paint Protection, which I use on the rest of my car. Huge improvement over wax, but if you want even more shine, you can always add a layer of carnauba on top (e.g. P21S Concours).

    Time to put proper springs in the rear. I encourage you to try a pair of Swift Z60-228-140 (9" length, 784 in-lbs) springs in the rear.
