Kind of takes away from the upgraded pulleys, CAI, and exhaust to go faster

Thats true...I think I have bent like 4 rims total. 1 S-lite, 1or2 Exel tz-10(can't remember because I haven't had those rims for ages), and 2 of the Drag DR-16. Bent the Drag wheels because there were huge rocks on the highway that I didn't see driving at night...

My advice, get some 2 or 3 piece wheels, so you can repair them easily. Or get a cheap set of rims, like the Drag wheels. $300 for 4 rims, can't beat that!

LOL, I feel bad for the squirrels and chipmunks in the area. They don't even stand a chance of passing right under the car...

True, I have looked at Drag wheels. Though, if I was to put them on my car, I would do like you and out 15's on it. For some reason, they look much better in 15's than 17's.

I am only 165ish, and there is nothing to lose, except maybe some hair...and body hair isn't going, this isn't competitive swimming...

Well guys, just a brand spankin' new Canon Digital Rebel today, 10.1megapixel. I was planning on uploading some 'quality' shots, but of course they don't send a memory card with the camera...wtf.

Stay tuned...

And if they were to send you a new card, it wouldn't hold much. I just got my Canon PowerShot G9 and I think it has 256MB card.. but I went and got a 4GB card.. holds 1250 shots.. very nice!
