    Unfortunate but it shows that plastidip isn't the best solution.

    Re: Show us your STS!

    Hey there, this is my first post, so sorry about the poor picture quality and the dirty car, pictures are in winter (if I even got them to upload ha ha), it is a 2008 STS4 1SG Platinum black on black (rare) every option except rear spoiler and block heater from what I can tell. (I added them both on)
    Only other thing I added was the 20% 7 window tint

    My question for all you STS owners is:
    I am looking to go with a 20" setup, here is my dream setup so far...
    Front, 20x8.5 with +40 offset, 255 35 20 tires
    Rear, 20x9.5 with +40 offset, 285 30 20 tires
    The rotating diameter of these tires is the same as stock (important with my AWD)

    I was wondering if I am on the right track with offset, maybe I should go +45?? (I don't want them to stick out or rub). I wasn't sure if the front tires would tuck nice with +40 or 45 and I was curious if I could even fit a 285 on the rear with either offset, Thanks everyone!
    (car is stock height on the magnetic ride)

    Re: Show us your STS!

    ^cant tell that from the front end.

    Only thing you can tell is it has 17" wheels and HIDS (due to the headlamp washers)

    Since HIDs were ONLY available on the 1SC 1SF and 1SG odd are that its actually a V8 1SF.

    It is an sts4 v6. I'm not 100% sure what all the available options are, but it has a boat load of 'em

    Has the heated front and rear seats, vented front seats, heated wheel, moon roof. NAV, HID, and a whole lot of moxy!

    No N badge. I wanted the v6 for fuel efficiency. The car I'm giving up is faster than the V8 so if I wanted fast, I'd keep my VW R32. I'm so excited! Tomorrow is the big day!!

    Not to burst your bubble but you will only net 1 or 2 mpg highway better on the V6 ... This is still a 2 ton luxury car...
