Also, it would be 18x9 +24 up front. And these are the dark gunmetallic color, which is a lot darker than my vmrs.

Ryan, you're not as low as I am and I don't think you'd ever want to be. This is why I said you can fit those size and offsets. You'll need a roll if you want to run even meatier tires though.

I just don't get how I can go from 19x8.5 +35 and 19x9.5 +22 to 18x9 +24 and 18x10 +20 without major rubbing if I'm already rubbing, especially in the rear. I'd definitely have to roll.

What tire sizes are you running and do you have any suspension mods? I assume your fenders are rolled either.

GameStop on Stevens creek. The big one next to Barnes and Noble. I got my race wheel and pedals from there. I think they can special order the whole seat thing for you

well you need to get the right table to attach the steering wheel to, probably a super heavy one that wont move if you turn the wheel with some force. If you're willing to spend the money then get the whole set with the seat included. It'll be a lot easier and convenient.

No haha I checked on her today though, so it eased the pain a bit. My OEM Euro headlights are getting the blackout treatment right now and getting work done. At the same time their replacing my oil gasket and some bolts that were sheered off on my intake manifold along with plugs. Probably won't get her back till end of the week if I am lucky. Crossing my fingers haha
I got the info to the meet this Saturday too.

Craigslist Logitech g27, upgrade to racing seats and then somehow wire up your heated seats -- if you have the ZCW package

Lol. I've been up playing Gran Turismo 5 for the last two days
