Finally New Wheels Installed

Not good at taking pitures

Titan Rota 17X9 +42, 18lbs 10mm spacers in the front, 5mm in the rear, Fenders Rolled

Tires are RE71 245/40R17 No Rubbing except full lock in parking lot, rubs on the inner plastic linner a bit, I have stock shocks with Roadstersport Springs

ARP Extended Studs and FM open wheel lugs

Will be getting GWR Wilwood kit soon to have more clearance with a smaller spacer (10mm -> 5mm), so it wouldn't stick out as much.

P.S: I have no idea why the second and forth picture is not uploaded properlly

My car is the same color as yours. I’m thinking of painting my red lip white. Have not installed yet. I’m thinking I’m liking the cleaner color matching lip.

Red lip seems nice!

I have two plans for that

I was thinking painting the whole front bumper white, and leave only the inside fake vents part out

Paint everything white as well, buuuuut 3D Scan the Vent piece and make a 3D Copy that has functional vents

Both cost too much and I have no time..

Thx, it takes so much effort, I am not so sure its even worth it at this point

@klikai Love that side stripe -- Love that it runs the full length of the car. Where did you get it? That would look awsome on "Binaca" in Red so it matches the lip and mirrors.

Both of those new sets of shoes look great. Good choices guys! Always been a fan of pinstriping. Any idea how much weight you've cut down?
