Just moved back to the Chicago area (Lakeview). Since I have no garage to work on my car anymore, can anyone give me good suggestions for an indy shop? Perferably one that uses BMW/approved fluids and decent prices?

James, please do a financial analysis. Use $500 (mid level chicago area prostitute) as a baseline.

Assuming you die early at 60, for the same money, thats two prostitutes a week until you die. In conclusion, dont bang one woman, bang a lot of women.

i must concur

weight savings is worth it. most guys do 17's on the ARCs to save even more weight. 18's are stylish enough and drop about 6-7 lbs per wheel from OEM.


drop the car a few inches and you won't even notice they are 18's

A, this website sucks.

b, Weight savings is a moot point. even if I could drop 7 from each wheel, thats a 1-2% performance pump at best. Vs. looking better all the time.

28 pounds in rotational mass makes a pretty noticeable difference, much more so than say just taking a 28 pound shit before driving. I would say the main reasons to go 18 would be a much better selection of tires and they are cheaper, cant get rs-3's or star specs in 19s, also a taller tire gives a more compliant ride and also better traction, and I kinda like the look of a meatier tire rather than a real low profile

Can't go wrong with Arcs. I'm waiting on my Arc8s 18x10 et25s square. I would rather have a fatter tire hence 18s to also protect against possible damage.
