    Looks good man. Do they rub since you're lowered? Quad shocks removed?

    Indeed I did 275/40/17 NT555 up front and 315/35/17 NT555 in the rear, oh and the date on the tag is when I picked her back up not when it expired
    Eh only time they rub is when you go over something that is very steep at an angle other than that they are great I love them. Quad shocks are still in place didn't have to flip them either AND the wheels are not spaced.

    When I first got mine, it was raining some and took off eh kinda fast but not all crazy and no spin. They were wet amd the road was wet some too. Unlike ol famous falkins. Same day I slid turning from a light when it was sprinkling for about 12 minutes. Facepalm.

    Did you measure those rears by any chance? I heard they run real narrow for 315s.

    I was thinking about getting some this year but I think I'm gonna end up getting Toyo's for the extra width.

    Hey [MENTION=15489]sn95jones[/MENTION] ever considered sanding, primering and repainting your gas tank cover black? It'll blend nicely with the rear section of the bumper.
