this might be one of my favorite (looking) speeds out there.
silver rpf1's look so right, and the drop is perfect.
well done man.
Thank you good sir... You're has come a long way!

BTW for anyone who is interested, I'm putting up my stockies for sale in the classified.

18x9 +35? Peculiar size, but looks pretty good.

I'd drop the front 1/4" just to even out the wheel gap.

@color0-fenders need to be rolled before I can drop it more unfortunately. on my list of things to do.
@Oliverms3- can we be wolf pack brothers too?

Suspension is done other than minor tweaks to height and load adjustments, next up I'm moving to fast bits parts. Order I'm going for HPFP-->AP-->SRI for now, definitely want to do a full turboback, but I need to read into more about tuning before I start really messing with it.

Thank you tax season plus quarterly bonuses :)

I haven't fully decided yet, I want something that has plenty of sidewall to give myself a comfortable ride. Right now I'm running the stock 225/40 dunlop tires and they run pretty wide due to the side wall protector, but they are pretty uncomfortable. I want to do 255/35 but that may cause rubbing, I was think 235/40 as a good medium, slight stretch but still plenty of meat on the wheel.

Now there's a thought lol. Do it. I can walk you through any fender trouble you might have, 255/35 on a 9 is much easier to deal with than on a 9.5.

i would love to run that wide, my only concern is how much pull on the fender I would need to do. I edge on staying away from pulling the fender as its my personal preference to not have the flared look. Rolling and flattening the fender lip would be my best compromise. I would definitely consider 245/35 or 235/40. I would like to go just a bit lower but I don't feel like chewing up tires haha

How much camber are you running? Speed3's have wider front fenders anyways so you won't have to pull that much.

currently I'm running natural camber up front around -1.5 and the rears I'm at 0. I will need to camber the rears to match the front but all in due time.
