Re: NEW TIRES!!! Finally

it rides better for sure! I noticed it right away. They feel a bit softer at high speeds...like if I gently turn the wheelback and forth on the freeway they feel like the give a little more..maybe cause they're bigger...and they are pretty soft.

And I plan on dropping it soon...but for now I feel its ok. I cant afford $3000 in Tein suspension right now lol

Re: NEW TIRES!!! Finally

tein s-tech's will run you $200... blues are another $450

...and I have a full coilover suspension and it didn't cost me anywhere near $3000.. I have a $1600 coilover setup I paid $1250 (shipped) for.

Re: NEW TIRES!!! Finally

Corsportusa.com or showstoppersusa.com. Showstoppers has the tien coilovers but another good replacement is progress coilovers and they have them on showstoppers and corsport.
