Pictures finally, 162 with RE 15mm spacers.

Finally got them on and I think its perfect for the rear (sport pkg). If lower, I think 18mm would be perfect.







Just got rain on, it's dirty.

Marcus, BTW, I used to date a girl from Torrance/Gardena area back in the day. Spend many days of my precious younger years there, and the street races there.

Ahh, shit, I just retorgued the wheels and slipped...put a damn scratch on one of the 162.


Yup...finer days back then..., guys used to meet up at Sandi's/Naugles then head out to the races. It was there that I saw my first race crash. Quite an eye opener.

Pittwm, good stuff. I also plan on 15mm or 12mm.

Can you post some pics taken a little bit further away from the vehicle?
thanks! (also, can you post how the bolts look like?)

The pic still look tucked, but if see in person looking at the whole side, it looks almost flat to the rear well. 18mm will be flat to the well but might look bow out when compare to the front.

cool! any more pics?

also, would painting the ends of the new lug bolts black help any? or would that come off pretty easily once you install them?

Hey Rob, I think another forum member tried painting the silver lug bolts black and the paint came off. He applied primer first, but it didn't help.

Yup, I did too and it would stay. The only other thing to do is if you have a blasting cabinet, blasted it with a glass beads then spray it with some type of bake on gunkote, it might work.


But I opted to get some new silver ones for the front, works out cheaper and less labor.

I was looking at their site, I might get the 12's. Any chance they'll sell 2 for half price?
