I go back and forth on my opinion of 20's. I had written them off until I saw a local guy's (07BLACKGT) car and was just blown away with his STR wheels. They didn't look near as oversized on his car...

Thanks.

I'm still split 50/50 after a few days of research.

Anyone with the 5 spoke 20" MMD style rims here? Do you find yourself wishing you had more sidewall?

Help my car find new shoes!

My tires are nearing the end of days (Thanks, 4.10s :icon_clapclap:) and I'm playing with the idea of moving to a 10" wheel in the back to put wider tires on. Problem is, I can't visualize what...

New Koni shocks just arrived. Are they damaged? (Pics)

Just had new Koni's arrive today. When I took them out of the box, I noticed that the top shock's bushing seems to be, I guess, warped? In no way can I bend that back to a normal shape. I send this...
