    What susp. / tire+wheel combo are you gunna get?

    Lets share ideas to make it a little easier for people to decide on the ride height, and shoes to wear....

    I will be trying to copy the Greddy version a bit with the 10 spoke black chrome wheels, and make the rubber a bit wider. and probly lower the the car about 1.5" in front and 2" in rear.....
    and thoughts would be helpful.
    Edit: may go with pirelli tires

    Tires are going to be dunlop star spec z1s. For coilovers I'm looking at the AST 4100 series or the KW V3s. Rims.. still haven't decided.

    Not sure at the moment but staggered BBS LM's with meaty R compounds would look pretty damn sick! Throw me some suggestions people, pic's would be good too.

    I should be getting Tein Flex in about 2 weeks, and have a set of 19X8.5 and 19X9.5 Forgedstar F14 with 225/35R19 front and 255/30R19 Yoko Neova. Will have pic soon.

    ^ Looking forward to it! It's not going to be easy stretching those 225 Neovas to 8.5. Even the rear. 255 will be slightly stretched on those 9.5s

    what is the largest width you can put on the stock wheels?

    Do you think that you can put 235/45ZR17's on the stock wheels?

    So guessing you ordered it already seeing you know when it's going to arrive, how much did it cost you MSRP and shipped to where you are?

    I haven't even ordered mine yet and I'm already considering what to do to it!

    Since the tires really are this car's weak point I was thinking about fixing that, but I'd probably stay with the stock size and rims for simplicity's sake.

    Summer tire: Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position or Michelin Pilot Super Sport.
    Winter tire: General Altimax Arctic (More serious weather) or Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60 (More mixed weather)
    All Season: Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS

    I'd really like to see what the car could do on the skidpad with those summer tires! Is Sport Compact Car still around? If they are they had better have an FR-S that they're building dang it.

    Also what do we think about strut tower braces? I haven't read up on this car's torsional rigidity and whether or not it needs help in that department.
