Deffinitely one of the classiest VLTs in the country. I think it's the colour and black venetians that make the exterior look so classy

Should look good with a set of Et's. What size tyre are you hoping to fit?
Thinking of ditching the standard shocks and springs for a set of coilovers?

hey dude, nah just gonna go the same slick size just 26 X 10 but on a 8.5" rim this time instead of 7". So on the street should fit a 275 on it. im not doing it for the tyre, im doing it cos i want convo;s on the car lolol

Ill try keep the stock shocks etc, but if i have complications i might need to replace. ill keep ya posted!

If your aiming to fit a 275/60/15 et's on the street you will have complications.

Before mine got out of hand it started out the same idea, basically you'll need to remove your standard stocks and springs, modify the standard tubs slightly (cut and shut no sledge hammer sh-it),setup new tubular lower arms, setup a good brand coilover and everything should work very well.

If you allow a 275/60/15 to fit then you shouldn't have any drama using a 28/10.5 slick for racing.

Here are to pictures of how yours should look after your transformation. (thats as low as the car goes with 275s)

But thanks for the info man, ur car looks good on the convos!

Aren't the 275/60/15's the same size as a 28x9?, so they would fit on a 7 inch rim, but not on a 8.5, same problem i am having with mine, then you have to tub, so you might as well put on a 28x10.5 on a 10 inch rim..lol
cheers
