my dws conties are amazing on potholes and rough roads compared to the run flats and winters I was using before.

For good or bad, I dont need to dodge some bad roads I drive daily now cause they barely go bump now.

Def just the RE050A RFTs...FWIW my PS2s were ZP (zero pressure...runflat) and rode much better than the Bridgestones, which are piece of shit hockey pucks for tires

How's Chicago/Halsted around that time? Maybe Chicago>Halsted>North>90/94? Or maybe LaSalle to North?

There's no really "good way" to get around that area if it's at a peak traffic time.

I live downtown and I find it easier to take side streets like taking milwaukee (im in the north suburb area for work) and take it down to elston and elston to ashland takes me an hour to get back home

Milwaukee can be a real pain too, though, and in order to get from Gleacher to 90, it doesn't help a lot, due to the fact that you can't get on that way from Milwaukee as far as I know. I think the Ontario/Milwaukee area is one on ramp and then the next isn't until North. I could be wrong though.

Illinois is where that cabbie mowed down the pedestrian recently, right? That's a pretty good route as far as speed goes. It is in the wrong direction but sometimes you have to do that to get where you're going faster in the city.

Can you even get on at Adams though? I'd rather get on the freeway as far away from all the Circle shit as possible. Go North.

i think i just accepted that fact and i'm going to pull the trigger. right now i only have tints lol but i feel like i'm about to go crazy. i started a list of mods i'm thinking about and it's already >$8k.

may the mods begin!

I TRIED to plan a certain amount of money to spend but then it just dengerated into me buying whatever, whenever (within reason). If your thinking about getting money back don't mod.

Afternoon gents. Got a visit from a tree branch yesterday during the storm while detailing a Chevelle at a customers house.



More pics of the carnage found on www.DRSCars.info in my section.

On another note thanks for all the referrals guys. You know who you are.
