    Thanks brother. The wheels are Ambit RE08's 18x9.5 +15 front, 18x10.5 +15 rear. Unfortunately, this model has been discontinued.

    Gonna replace the front tires today. Should look and fit better. Removing 245/40/18's and replacing with 265/35/18's. The wheels are 9.5 inches wide up front.

    I have the 265's up front on XT's and they handle quite nicely, no rub either.

    Magic......you know your car looks good, so Im going to get away from that for a minute lol.



    I had 275's on the front of mine for a little while and they seemed to track really bad with the grooves in the road. I backed it down to 255's and they are much better, at least for driving around my area.

    LOL, thanks; you know me too well! I ended up going with the 265/35/18's. I think they look much better. I'm digging the extra contact patch on the road. They seem to track really well. Here's an updated photo with the 265's up front:

    Disregard the blue towels on the mirrors. They are my bird defense. For some reason birds like to perch on the window belt moldings, look in the mirrors and take craps all over the sides of the car. Really annoying and disgusting. :confused: With the towels in place, they stay away!!

    I think I'm going to pull the trigger on a new spoiler tonight. After months of trying make a decision, I think I've finally figured it out.

    Yeah 275s track like no other, but look badass.

    Don't buy a wing, just take it off.

    I considered that as well... Decided against. Your car pulls it off very nice. I'd wanna do it right and get a v6 lid. If what I have in mind doesn't pan out, wingless was my next thought. Your car sold me on the idea but I wanna try something else out first.

    Sweet!
    I ordered a set of those Depo lights (in the regular chrome/clear) for my Cobra yesterday. Will be doing the HIR bulbs in them.

    Nice! I run 6k HID's in mine. After I aimed them, they are an excellent upgrade over stock. I love them.
