thanks guys. they're 18x9 +40 and 18x10 +38. the camber is horrible right now. as soon as i get the diff put back together, i'm taking it in for a full alignment. i just put nwe coilovers on it a couple weeks ago, but wanted to wait for the new wheels to do height adjustment and alignment

if you dont mind, where did you catch those rims? and how much did they cost you? roughly...
bought them from a place a couple hours away from me called street sports. they're located in lexington, ky. i'm thinking the wheels were just a tad under $1400 shipped. the only bad part is it took 2 and a half months for them to get to me
Location: So farrrr away from the Land of the Rising Sun
Yes well at least the Spirit R badge is appropriate for the car and its capabilities, Rogue. He's also gone to the 99+ spec front end so no big deal IMO. It's not really quite the same as slapping a Type R badge on a DX now is it?

No, its not, but it is the equivalent of slapping on a Type-R body kit onto a civic and calling it a Type-R.

yeah, and type-r's don't typically have a t78 and 439whp, now do they? i happen to love the spirit-r's and i know i'll probably never own one. however, with the titanium grey, the sidemarkers, and the '99 stuff, it just didn't look right without the badges. put me on any track near a spirit-r and i'll eat it. your average ricer isn't going to be doing any of that. if ya don't like it, fine, just say so. don't for one second compare me to some ricer in a honda
Originally posted by r0gu3 My favorite phrase would be "To each his own." Your car is clean, but what it isn't is a Spirit R. Similar to Lamborghini conversions on Fiero's.
Give the guy a break, Jensy. His car looks badass. 'Nuff said

Thanks to all those who attended the 2013 Carlisi Memorial Meet!
I guess r0gu3 has a different view of the car world...
The car looks fantastic!! Nobody will ever know the difference if it wasn't a "real" Spirit R (other than the whole RHD thing... )
I've got to ask a few things... first, how much do those wheels with tires weight? Second, did you have to roll the fenders?
I've been debating whether to go to 17's or 18's... The only thing that's been keeping me back is the lack of tire choices if you go with 17's.... Plus the weight factor! I'll assume having a 17" wheel is better suited for performance.
But those 18's look so mean and sinister!
Don't get me wrong, the car is awesome and cleanly done. (Throw up a underhood pic, I want to see that massive snail) I just think something shouldn't be called what it isn't. Indeed a Mustang with Saleen body panels would be a much better comparison.
