Just A couple pictures because I like to share:cheesy:





That's it. Completely lowered.
As you can see, the 225/50's are a LOT of Tire. treadwidth, and height-wise.
Given the choice, I'd go 225/45.

You can barely see it, but I have the EBC greenstuffs in. it Takes a few stops in the AM before they work well, but I like them yet. they're LOUD, btw! so are the metal-masters rears.

The FCD and new MBC setup will go in sometime this week, but not before I install the stupid AMP, and get all my speakes running(2 out of 7 work =0[ ).

I also need a new SID cage so I can install the boost gauge.

I TOTALLY hate waiting on stuff.

I'll keep you updated...(like you care;) )

No way. These things are humongous next to the stock 195/60/15
They stand probably 2" taller. (and obviously...they rub now)

I suppose the #'s work out to be similar, but there's a good amount of variance between manufacturers.

My 215mm yokohama A520's were almost the width of most 225's.

With those numbers you got at F1, you're certinalt ahead of the crowd. I'm only hoping mine will be as good or better at the dyno day.

the SE came stock with "Viking" 16s, but those Hockenheim Rs are a nice substitute...and you can definitely use the steelies.

Nice looking ride....

My vikings had 50 series rubber on them stock. My 17" Hock R's have 45 series, which should be 40 to make it as clost to stock as possible. So if you do have the 16's then 50 should be fine.

One thing you dont have to wait on is clearing those corners :cheesy:
