Check out my new rims! - 5Zigen Fighters

Picked up my new rims today. 5Zigen Fighters with 215/45R17 Kumho Ecsta 711s.
I'm hoping to do the Eibach Pro-Kit / Koni Yellows later this summer.

(I hope the upload worked...)

Thanks! Actually the rear is slightly lowered because I have the stock rims and tires in the back seat/trunk. lol My other pictures look like I've got a trunk full of helium balloons or something. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-blush.gif[/IMG]

I'm looking to buy a house soon, so that will be taking priority over the lowering right now. Plus I want to do some of the work myself, which means I'll need a garage (which will come with the house).

Your car will look pretty tight then you put the springs on in the summer.

Love the rims and tires. The 711's last longer than its Z cousin 712

Cool. I guess I don't have to worry about flogging my tires too hard. I've read some stories about the 712s short life.

I did some 'spirited' driving 2nite. What a difference a wheel/tire combo make! Those stockers would squeal and whine and complain around almost any corner driven faster than "grandma" speed. These suckers take the corners without any protest. I can't wait till I tweak the ride later to reduce the body roll.

Shopping list:
Eibach Pro-Kit
Koni Yellows
Neuspeed Front strut bar
Neuspeed Rear strut bar (does this exist yet?)
Greddy EVO
I.C.E.
etc, etc, etc...

Here's a pic after took the stock rims/tires out of the back. hrmm, maybe I should just leave them in the back to keep that "lowered in the back" look. lol
