Flame me for the flared pipes. I don't care. They sound good.

Image

New tires all the way around. The Nankangs hit the headlight bucket greatly reducing my autocross times. I changed to Continentals all the way around. 145/65 front and 205/60 rear. Much better look for me.

Image

Zoom front.

Image

Zoom in on my rear.

Image

Down the front.

Image

I love that the interior is mostly unmolested. Unlike my passengers.

looks like your setup is exactly like mine Scott.
set the toein at 0degrees and the camber at less than .5degrees negative
also install caster shims under the lower tube.
it will ride smooth with very little resistance on the tires and still respond pretty quickly in a panic situation.

This just opened the door for me to run a zoom tube. Nice job scott!

How do you think those 165s would work out on a 4.5" wheel? I'm on the fence about a good old 145 or the 165 route. I'm not going to go super low so I'm thinking the 145 might be best to fill out the wheel well.

Car looks great BTW. =D>
60 doublecab.

when did the door close for zoom tubes? :-k

i have them on a few 4.5 inch wheels and love them. they are very short but these contis ride great. i don't like the look of a traditional 145 for this car but they do fill the fender well nicely. franz has a recommended tire size post somewhere that will answer most questions for you.

thanks for the compliment!
