Default MAK DTM One

It's still early, but I got my summer wheels on. 18X8 ET 40 wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sports 205/40/18.

So, no more snow in Illinois?...
Thanks for posting these... I am still waiting for my summers coming from Japan. It is good to see how 205/40 looks on 18x8 as I am looking to do the same. That is the most amount of stretch I could live with (like what I see on your car).
Btw, it is a killer combo! Keep it coming....

Not much snow but still cold as hell...taking it easy with them Strangely, the grip has really surprised me running them below their ratings. I think the Super Sports will be incredible when the weather comes around.

I was tossing around going between a 205 or 215. In the end, this worked well. The offset is ET40 and no rubbing at all. Looking forward to seeing your new set-up.

Looking killer man. How did you get a GP diffuser so fast? I've had mine on order for a minute.

God I love this car.

Have you thought about having the headlight surrounds painted? That's literally the only thing I could suggest.

Thanks Jo! I jumped on the diffuser as soon as I saw it became available...couldn't believe they were releasing it.

Thanks Jason I did do the headlight surrounds in black, then changed it back to chrome. With the factory Joey mod, it was just too much black for me...
