hold onto those wheels for when you pick up a Turbo....
def. post up some pics. the chromaflair color looks awesome in the sun.
^^ I have a set of 275's already from a previous car, so im putting those on to gauge how much room I have to play with, and once those run out, if I have room I will run wider.

Lifted off the alignment rack the wheels stick out a touch, but when it sits down they tuck in. I only am at 2.3 degrees negative camber. I still have to raise the rear of the car a bit and then adjusting the hubs a touch to give me more clearance. By the time im done I should be able to drive it like i stole it and have zero touching.

I love the new Hunter sensors that grab the tire instead of the rim.

Good luck with your oil pan at that height. I suggest getting a skid plate.

To be honest it isnt much lower than stock in the rear. the rear is lowered about an inch and some change, and with the tires i had to raise it back up a tad. It is the front that sits significantly lower. So i fabbed up in solidworks a cover plate for the front dif to keep it from getting damaged or at least help. I have had much lower cars and never ran into any issues.

PS i love your car, it is absolutely amazing!

Thanks. I was thinking about going with D2 for my set up. Good to see somebody using them.

I don't know where you live but more power to you if you can ride around lowered like you have in the first pics.

I had to raise mine up due to the aero package. I got a rear skid plate too just in case. Cheap insurance as OEM can be had for a bit over $100 IIRC. Direct bolt on as well.

Thanks

Yea, cincy the roads suck but there isnt too many curbs or steep areas that can mess things up. Im sure once I get an aero package I will have to bring the front up a touch.

Ill get pics of it on the ground this weekend. Good buddy of mine blows my photography out of the water and we are going to take some with his 964

275 on a 11" wheel... Did you by chance come from the Audi/VW crowd?
Its his Chicago humor. Its his way of saying


BTW, nice looking car and color choice. I wondered about tire rub also, since you went so low.

I'd like to see the stretch with the 275. from the photo, it doesn't look stretched much. BTW, I was stationed over in GE for a few years and the tuner crowed over there knew how to stretch a tire! Wasn't my cup of tea but was interesting to see first hand.

That looks really good. Those wheels compliment the car very nicely.
