NICE!!

before you go with 22s you should check all the problems folks here have with potholes with that little rubber between them and the ground.

It's a little late now :-) They are already on, and rollin. Your right, not much rubber, but the right 22 just transforms the f01/f02. If 21's were more available I might have gone that route. So far I don't regret my choice. ( especially if I can get this rubbing situation resolved)

The other thing working in my favor, is I work from home, and don't drive that much.

Thanks for the input.

Rubbing is no good and very unsafe... I would dump them now and sell'em fast. You still have my number?

Nice.. I would take the liner out before I did that!( not really ) but I am so happy with the look I would figure something out.

I took it by the dealer today, and they weren't thrilled about trying to adjust it, but I think I have them convinced..

Side note, we should grab lunch one day soon before I have to pull them off for winter. You ever in the dayton mall/austin blvd area?

Yeah, I'm in the area a couple times a week. I assume you are taking your car to Voss? They just picked up a SA from Evans a week or so ago.

These might be my favorite aftermarket wheels I have seen so far. Great pic's, can't wait to see more.

Is you rear lowering rods at the suggested 65mm?

Thanks! I agree, but then again I'm a little bias ;-)
I'm not sure about the 65mm thing, all I know is that the H&R kit came with new rear links, and the installed them. As far as I know they were not adjustable. Am I missing something?

Thanks! I'm real happy with them.

Another added bonus is there is a lot of room between spokes to really get the inside of the wheel clean. That part is usually a pain.

I know there are several other members here with the same setup as me. (H&R + 22's).
Anybody else rubbing the liner in reverse?

I have 22's with no drop and it rubs when turning hard to the left or backing up and turning the wheel the whole way. It. Does stop after a few months
