Talking TIME FOR: SVT Contour w/big tires & wheels

OK -

you asked for it.

Or, did you? I need some unbiased opinions -
be honest !!!

Anyway -
while Flash is gone, I've been working on a project for this summer ---

so, what do you think?

The wheels are ADR Battle Exe
18" x 7.5", the tires will be
I think, I'm pretty sure
S03's 225 x 35 x 18 .... the diameter is not too far off from the original tire/wheel, so, size wize we should be fine.

It still gives us a little bit more than an inch more tread width....

yeah,

i know your gonna laugh ..... I did it myself,
put the tires and wheels on the car.......
I really need your opinions...
whether you like SVT Contours or not -

I'm working on a few more (see below)

here is one of our first pictures of her ---

stock tires and wheels...

not bad...

but you know me,

some bigger tires and wheels are in order for the summertime.

That will probably be the only modification until the warranty runs out ...

I can probably imagine that there was a bet going on how long it would be before I brought the subject up again....

I like the middle top one (Katana?) and the bottom right one. Good luck with your decision

I'm getting there Rich,
I'm getting there.....



thanks for your opinion -
I think I'm starting to agree with you....

I do not want anymore than six spokes -- I tried going with the thin spokes (seven) but it made it look ricie... Not trying to put anyone down or anything...

just that this is an SVT - i want it to look more like a BMW....
