    My buddy Sean apparently was bored last night and was sketching some cars when he decided to sketch my car. He did this completely from memory. I thought it looked pretty damn good. Got an intercooler filling the mouth and a super-wide wheel/tire setup. :D

    What tires are you going to be running, 275-35/15?? lol
    sketch looks pretty friggin cool!

    (i still think that GV bumper with a mouth full of intercooler would be badassness)

      lol At least that much. Maybe 15x12 rims too. (Speaking of which, Chris (kickinoutyo) on CR.net posted up with some 15x12s on his Miata.)

      Yeah, I know. I like the gv bumper, but not on my car, if that makes any sense. lol

        Unfortunatly, there isn't much in tire sizes between 225-45/15 and the 275's. Now, if you go with a 16, you can get 245-45/16 to fill out those fenders, but you might have to raise the car up considering they have a 24" diameter (the same diameter as the 215-40/17s I have on my car). If you want to get any idea if that diameter tire will fit, we can throw my 17" D2s on your car and check the clearances.

          Thanks, but it's cool. I'm not planning on going with any supersize wheel/tire, that was just his drawing of it. I'll be sticking with the 15x8s for a while, and probably the same size whenever I get 6ULs instead of x9s.
          I got the machine shop estimate last night, so some upgrades (head swap, wheels, body work) will be set back until after the first quarter of next year.

            I'm personally not a fan of the 6UL's.

            So the estimate is pretty costly I'm assuming?

              Yeah, but pretty much dead on considering what's being done. Just had to take the head work off the list. I could afford to do it all at once, but at the same time, I don't want to dip to far into what I've saved just in case something goes wrong with the car or in life. I have a perfectly good head to use for now. So I'll either be boxing up the '99 head and storing it for later or I'll sell it since I have everything for a complete swap plus better valves. Still trying to figure out what I want to do.

                  lol

                  I know they would, but the Kumho's I have are more than good enough for street/daily driving use and didn't cost that much. That's a big factor right now!

                          Just 1 extra set. I took advantage of an offer Discount Tire had a while back, was $150 off a set of tires plus free shipping. I ordered 2 sets. :lol:

                            Ahhh. I need new tires for my D2s and I would like to swap out the tires on the Enkeis for something with more grip.. and maybe even a larger size.
