Shoot, hope everything turns for the better! How were the BC's by the way? Those look like the extreme low versions.

Yeah, ikr?! Now I don't have to worry about wheels... was going to run 19x9.5 and 19x11.5 brushed copper faced wheels. I had literally decided on them last night too.

AS FOR THE BC-BR TYPE FEEDBACK...
I only had 10 miles on the suspension, and I tested it over my usual scrape dips where the ST's would compress too much... well, in my honest opinion, the BC's ride like they're made of stone filled with dynamite. Bumps are loud as fuck and some of them are downright SCARY to go over. On smooth roads, they're great, but Houston is mostly devoid of that even in the nicest areas. On the few high speed sweepers I took, it feels noticeably superior to ST's. Turn in is super crisp and body roll is nonexistent.

If you live in a city with 70% nice roads, I'd get them. if you live in a shit hole, get ST's and stick to 18's and under.

Damn man after finally making your wheel decision now this. What happened anyway and doesn't look the greatest you keeping it


Hmmm interesting. When I go I over bumps they definitely aren't loud as fuck lol or scary. Kinda interesting you say that maybe give them a shout. But the do handle alot better and help with body roll quite bit
