How do you like the wheels?


Not a permanent setup but I had them sitting in the garage, so they'll do for now.
17x7.5 Eagle Alloys 169
235/50/R17 Goodyear
Red calipers and drums

If you can't hear it before you see it...what's the point?

It is. I pull my dj trailer with my bird so the rear springs are a little saggy.

x2 on the headlights, is that custom or purchased?

the wheels are nice too, its good to see more than 5 spokes every now and then, and with yours there isnt too much going on still, nice to look at

Yeah they're custom. I did them. A wrote a good addition to the following thread, emphasizing on the headlight and corner light painting portion...

Nice

I really like those headlights too but I think they would look better if your car was all black or something

Haha! Thanks man but I like the contrast that the headlights bring to the car. I'm getting ready for paint and 1997 Xenon body kit. Not sure on what color yet. The headlights definitely add an aggressive look to the car. Way better than the yellowed '95 headlights I used to have. I'm working on HIDs too. I located a decent priced kit by Phillips for $175.00 and I believe it's a 10K. The headlights have the insides painted, it is not smoked. I don't know how easy it is to tell so I figured I'd add that part in.
