Finally rockin my summer setup!!!

Hey guys I'm so pumped to have finally put my summer shoes on today... 18x8.5 et45 (yes 8.5" wide) BBS LM Reps wrapped in 215/40ZR18 Michelin Pilot Super Sports and of course Mini center caps ...Fits like a dream with 10mm spacers on the front and 15mm spacers on the rear...No rubbing or any issues whatsoever!!! Loving the performance of this setup so far!!!

It is not "Old School" if you can not put a Weber on it.

Haha thanks! Agreed on the lowering but the roads around here are total crap so it would be a death sentence haha it looks higher in the pics because my garage is quite sloped...It sits nicely I think....Super wide...Rim edge sticks out about 1" or more past the fenders 😋

adding coilovers doesnt mean you lose comfort. adding some nice damping from some KW or similar will only make the ride and handling better

Hey Jordan I appreciate the advice and I have been in lots of cars with good quality coilovers and the ride is great no doubt but you don't understand the roads here are complete s*@t haha...potholes, crappy manhole sewer covers and poorly constructed railroad crossings galore...Not to mention we get alot of snow in the winter and im too lazy to keep raising and lowering haha
