Looking at your standing angled shot of your rear, i think mine might stick out a tiny bit more, but that's probably due to wheel offset. And since you'rs is lowered with negative camber, the tops of the wheels are angled inward.


Nitpicking, but stance matters.
the rears on these cars dont, and cant have negative camber, solid axle, only my front has negative camber and i think its about 1.75*

I do have an adjustable panhard bar though which helped alot with centering and tightening up the rear

I think i need to tint my tails

And i do think 315's, atleast in goodyear brand, would fit easily

Yeah they are pretty fat. lookin good.

I goof'd with SRA having camber.. i'm a suspension noob, and forgot about the SRA

You have minimal power mods.. i'm sure you don't have any trouble putting your power down? some 5.0 owners say they chirp into 3rd stock or near stock, but that's probably due to 8 or 8.5 inch width. I have never chirped into 3rd with around 400whp, yet I can spin all the way through 2nd if tires aren't warmed up (i think my 3rd gear is very tall). My rear wheels are 10", tires are more like 11.2

Nice I almost went with those F1's I was in between those and Invo's, but I got a little worried since they were discontinued. They seem to wear pretty fast from what I've read. Looks good, what offset and width are your wheels?

My coworker has an invo on one wheel lol, you can see it in one of my pics.

My wheel specs are in my sig. I bought them through howey industries and they suggested the offsets.

the rear tires were made in 2007 but they seem completely fine, they dont feel too hard or anything and seem to grip ok. no signs of weather cracking or dryness
