How do you keep the fronts from rubbing? What size tires?

In 19s? I've been trying to find such a creature, but all I've been able to find are 18" wheels.

A little bit of negative camber and a 245 tire. I do have coilovers so there is plenty of room.

As far as traction goes its not too bad. I do run Invos which are a sticky tire. I will hook in third gear during warmer months. Second is do able with good throttle control. I plan on running NT05s next an they are supposed to be even more sticky.

Loved my NT05s - they took my 672rwhp really, really well - but don't expect them to last. I got about 9K miles out of them at the most.

My car sees maybe 6K a year so longevity is not very high on my priorities. I would rather buy tires more often and have decent traction rather than end up redecorating a highway divider. BTW how did those tires do in the rain?

When they were new, they did pretty well the one time they were out in the rain.

...I, too, do not drive my car very often. 19K miles on the odometer right now.

The front "splitter" is actually a foam piece I got off of eBay. Its sticks with double sided tape. Being as low as I am I would have broken a fiberglass piece by day two of having it on there.

I am going to dig this thread back up for a question. What is the hub diameter of these? All the sets I have seen have BMW 72mm hub diameter. If this is the size of yours did you use any kind of hub ring or anything? They do look sick though man.

Hey they look good to me. Not everyone has the same tastes, but can't we all just get along.

THe exhaust tips are off the Porsche Cayenne. THey are pricey but when I as done its still cheaper than buying a cat-back. The wheels I got from A-Spec Wheels. They are actually going up for sale tomorrow. I have another set going on today.

No hub rings. This is my second set of 72mm hub wheels and over the last two years not one issue. I simply tighten the lugs in three steps, going tighter each time.
