Question Rims suggestions for Grabber Blue GT

Hey guys,

New to the site, wanted to introduce myself and my Grabber Blue GT. We're happily in the honeymoon phase

Looking to get some recommendations on some wheels. Looking at 19 inch rims in either gunmetal or black. I'd prefer it be either of these two, as I'm going for the black and blue look (black stripe, limo tint, black rims)



Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Haha, I suspect you're upgrading?

My initial thought was to go with the TSW Jaramas in black, but the nurburgrings have my attention as well.

Good luck with that GB. At much as it pains me to actually say this, it sounds like you have your priorities straight.

Eek.

Re: Rims suggestions for Grabber Blue GT

I like the idea of black rims, I just think I need some contrast with a chrome or silver lip.

So, I'm going to go with the 19 inch 2013 GT500 rims now available on AM. My dilemma is, do I go with the springs and adjustable pan-hard bar now.....or should I wait to drop it. I don't want to piss off the warden (wife), but I have no idea how bad it could look if I throw 19s on it and don't drop it at least an inch.

Does anyone know how 19s look with the stock springs? Any pictures for reference that could help me decide?

Thanks all.

Heh, I'm not asking for advise on the rims anymore. More curious about whether or not it definitely needs to be lowered after I put it on 19s. I may have to delay the springs for a few months, but if it's going to look awful I'll just opt to get them now.

Lowering definitely helps, but no need to get in trouble with the wife, it can wait... Unless you can convince her to let you do it now lol

Yea, I can make it happen if need be. I'm more curious to know what 19's on stock springs looks like. If I throw them on stock, will it raise the ride or widen the gap?

If you have the stock 18 wheels your tire size is probably 235/50/18.

Many of the 19" rims you'll end up running a xxx/40/19 or xxx/35/19 which means chances are it will be smaller in overall diameter than the 18". Not by much, but still a tad.

Rims are bigger in size but tire sidewall height will be smaller.

Essentially, that's widening the gap it sounds like.

Wait on the springs until you can get the C/C plates and adjustable pan hard bar to correct the alignment.

They replace the stock strut mounts but are caster and camber adjustable. They are also very stable. You will get a perfect alignment that will be very hard to throw out. You can do camber bolts, but depending on the drop and the purpose of the car they may not get you perfect alignment and can also break.

I have CC plates myself. Glad I got them.

CC plates just give the shop a lot more room for adjusting the front end. If you are going for a modest drop (1-1.75") you don't need the CC plates.

You can get away with camber bolts.

But I like the adjustability of Caster/Camber plates. They replace the upper strut mount in the front and allow you to make much greater camber/Caster adjustment verses camber bolts.

...and I was beaten to it. Lol

Unless you autocross a lot. Camber bolts have been known to snap under these conditions. The CC plates won't. Just added security.

Bullitt Rims with the deep dish chrome would be my vote.

Eibach Pro Kit. 1.0F - 1.5R.

I'm getting the panhard bar. Do I need the CC plates?

Alright, now if get the springs, I just need to find a shop to do it at a reasonable price. My last ride I had my buddy install the springs. I'm guessing this is going to run me around $400-500.

You don't need a shop, with a friend it's a pretty easy install.
