The tires are thus far pretty damn cool. I'm tempted to never armor all them as the dry arse pencil eraser look is pretty tempting to rock. They're beefy and blocky and gooey and awesome as of yet. Way pscyhed by this yes. Pressures set to 29F/36R, and bump steer kit is a god send - makes the car driveable again after my lowering it last summer.

The rear bars wouldn't come out / cooperate apparently (sans more $ toward that effort), so the rear was lowered as much as could without their removal - I'd have liked a hair more down but ah well I'll 'suffer'.

Harold - here's my stats from today's completed tire mount, alignment, lowering, corner balance:

-0.7* / -0.9* front camber
-1.3* / -1.4* rear camber
0* front toe
.14* / .25* rear toe

corner weights, considering 1/2 tank fuel and 180lb. driver:

607 / 580 (F)
1001 / 926 (R)

fender lip heights:

24.5" / 25" (F)
25.5" / 25.78" (R)
