Starting the Summer Changeover Thread!

Hey guys! I know it's still early in the season but just wanted to start a thread to see when everyone is going to be changing over to their summer set up! Warmer weather and fresh rubber is on the way!

Will be switching over in Mid to late April. Still too soon now though

Temps need to be consistently at the 50 mark for me to switch.

Yes they are more aggressive, going from 11.5" rear which was my last year set up to 12" rear. Lips are going from 2.0" front to 3.5" and rear is from 3.5 to 4.5". Also lower offsets all around = nice pokie!!

I'm switching to a mid-season setup before I switch to a summer setup.

Not a major fan of the whole movement towards fitment, but it's always cool to see someone take it to the extreme limits. Props to you for pushing the envelope.

Just wanted to let you guys know I ordered a lot of spacers so I have all the sizes in stock if anybody needs them for their summer change over.

We have 10,12,15 and 18mm (black with black lugs)

Probably by next wknd I'll throw on the summers, the BBS's have been sitting idle way too long. My current blizzak's on the 189's aren't cutting it lol, especially since I lost my spacers. Car looks like a low-rider from a rap video
