I have been inactive for a while, house was taking up most my time and then just getting car parts painted and installed was another long ordeal. BUT I think it was worth it and I am happy with the outcome and seeing my car shape up to be the way I want it. Was hoping to update my 1st post with all this info but I see this is one of those forums that locks posts after a certain period of time has elapsed. Argh. Anyway, a few pics. Neeless to say, can't wait to upgrade wheels lol.
^Thanks, can't wait to get them on and finally ditch these lame 17's I've been rocking for 1.5 years haha. C'monnnnn tax refund.
They are Niche Vosso, 19x8.5 +35 F and 19x9.5 +35 R. Might go with 235/35 rubber in front and 265 or 275/30 rear. Seems to be the most common sizing people have used from all the setups I've seen on the Facebook page.
