This to improve my lot in the (friendly) competition between Me and Austin and Andyjo. :clap:

Traded away some struts and springs for the wheels. The have some killer offset, it will fling plenty of mud at WCSS8! They're a lot lighter than the XT6 wheels too.

Can't wait till it's finally lifted. . .

And of course they are much shinier than the XT6 wheels. But probably not for long.:banana:

But how?

With a lift kit?

They are about twice as complicated, but still pretty easy to lift by the looks of it.

Zapar, where can i find cheap 14inch alloys. After i wear through this set of swampers, i wanna move down to a smaller wheel, seeing how their is a better selection of tires for 14 inch. I want some alloy, oem knockoffs of some sort.

Around New Jersey? I couldn't tell you. Around here, they're everywhere. Lots of legacy wheels are available from mid 90s cars. I almost settled for a set of 5 spoke mags form a 96 imp to put these on. But as I was waiting for the guys at the j/y to pull the car I wanted out, I noticed these on a legacy that belongs to one of the emplyees. I asked if he'd trade, cuz the impreza wheels had bran new tires and his were bald. I have about 0 use for 185/70/14 street tires. He said yes, we all made out.
Keep in mind the ones I got are aftermarket ones. "Sendel" is the brand.

To answer your question about the wheel/tire combo I have in the Marketplace, I honestly can't remember how I came accross those wheels. I've had them 4 years or more. . .

75subielooks good Zap! fab up some tube bumpers for that thing! ....like Andy's:grin:

What do I need tube bumpers for? I'm not planning on crashing into stuff. lol Maybe an A bar type thing to protect the Y-pipe, but no bumper. If I get the cajones, I'll cut it like Austin did. I still wanna see that in person first.
