Chariot day :coffee:
Always a good day. After putting actual time into cleaning mine up last weekend, it still looked great yesterday.
Breaking my own neck walking away from it and all.

Take away: I should wash that ol turd more often.

This is not true. Rust is very much a thing around here with a LOT of salt being used.

They may be less rusty than cars around you, but I would still be very cautious with rust in Ohio area.
Good to know, thanks dooder :tumbsup:

I did read a forum post somewhere that said the streets of Ohio are paved with salt. That guy went on to say anything South of Columbus
gets a little better. This in mind, if buying a car sight-unseen, I'd probably skip Ohio all together.

A firm believer that one can achieve a stance to satisfy both realms.

I have a stance inspired track car :rotfl: (vs all the stancebois, claiming "track inspired"(obvious joke was probably obvious))

No lie there. The daily wheels are stance boi on a budget.

At least for reps, they dont have fake hardware :)

I watched a kid take a very close up picture of the wheels at CnC. Like he thought they were something new and fancy.
I laugh to think of his reaction when he figures out what kind of company Whistler is :rotfl:

"uh.... ~$90/wheel... "

Those are CCW reps, right?

Kevybro right now (basically)


I would have went with a meatier tire. Then maybe it wouldn't have looked as... Stance-y. Your track wheels/tires don't look bad.

It was supposed to look a little stancey. I went off the tried/true "race" alignment for my gen
miata but it happens to have enough camber to look a little stancy as well in DD form... with dishy-ish wheels.
The stretch isnt huge either. 205/40 on 16x8. The track tires are 205/45 on 15x8 and thats also the community fav.


I believe they are CCW reps though, just opposite rotation.

"Can I copy your homework?"

"Yeah just change it up a bit so it doesn't look obvious you copied."

"Ok"

The irony of those two photos together is great.

The quick connect vs the shitty sticker, the quality of the photo in general,
the dollar store knock-off version of the wheel... all so fitting lol.

Funny enough, the fitment looks equally bad.
