18x8.5 +45. I'm going to move my current pilot supersports over (265/35/18). Should be a super meaty fit on the 8.5". Once I wear those down I'll probably go back to 245s, but we'll see.

Update 5/23/18: New Shoes and Some Adjustments

Put the new wheels on this weekend! I really like the way they turned out. This wheel design and the meaty tires are exactly the look I was going for. The gold color turned out a little darker than I wanted, but it's growing on me. I could have gone for +40.

I'll get some better shots once the car is cleaned up a a few other issues are addressed.


I pulled the Whiteline 24mm adjustable sway bar out of the front and replaced it with the stock bar and I adjusted the 22mm rear sway bar to it's softest setting to compensate. This setup combined with the RCE black springs might make the car tail happy, so further adjustments may be made in the future. Switching to the stock front bar has made the car a lot more comfortable to drive around town. On a weird note, the car needs an alignment now, which I didn't think would happen with a sway bar change...

I also attempted to install the TBW undertray this weekend. What a POS... The bumper attachment doesn't line up at all and the rear attachment point bolt doesn't thread in far enough for my liking. Maybe it fits the 11-14 bumper better (sold as 08-14), but I doubt it.

Not even close...


Next, I'll probably work on the rear wing and taillights. Also looking at new bumpers/lips.

Update 6/24/18: Small Improvements

Installed some new Valenti Jewel taillights and replaced the spoiler with a new OEM piece. The new taillights are fantastic. They look so much better than the tint. Hope they hold up. The replacement wing is also a huge upgrade over the faded carbon fiber. I really liked the carbon look and was thinking or just getting a new one, but I found the stock piece for the right price and jumped on it.

Update 5/18/19: Fluid Change Day

Changed the Transmission and Diff fluid with Motul 300 and 300LS.

Thinking of having the car resprayed and getting the body repaired. Wouldn't change color. Also thinking about new wheels... Idk, we'll see.

Otherwise the car is doing great! Hopefully the weather is good tomorrow so I can give her a wash.

Update 6/5/19: New Wheels, Again

Changed the wheels again. Like these a lot more.



I went with a set of General G-Max RS tires is 265/35R18. Decided to give these a try after reading some good reviews. The price was great too.
