I'm running 285/30R20 on rear and almost rubbing with being lower with Eibach's pro kit. Is the 295 going to rub? I want more rubber as well but planned to roll the fender if went larger.

Well not only will a 295 be wider but if you stay w a 30 series then it will also be taller as a 295/30 means 30% of 295... The sidewall on a 275/40 is about a half inch taller than a 275/35.. Making the whole tire 1.1 inch taller

Awesome! Love them! Those 19 or 18? They clear the brembos pretty well or better than the stock? Looking good. You need to get her lowered.

Looks real good, but agree time to lower it and close that wheel gap.

Benzo, where did you pick these up at?

I'm real curious to see how the 20's are when you drop that beast. Fitment, ride, and rub, etc. and how much you drop it. Any plans for the drop?

Sweet all of that sounds awesome. It will set the pony off nice...

FR S/C install probably in May. I just can't do it right now (life is just too busy), sucks because it's sitting in my house. I'll wait and see how the Pony performs after the install and go from there. Otherwise after the install of the S/C I'm done for a while.

Oh I forgot I will install these gauges unless I can find something better.

I didn't drop the cash on the tpms kit either. The traction light is always on (because I always turn it off) so what's one more light?

The bumper does not need to come off but it will make life alot easier to do the install correctly. I'm going to do my Dual halo's and the splitter at the same time in a week or two today I got my fogs in unison all four come on now! And I changed my axlebacks to the magnaflow streets to quiet it down for the ole lady. It's still sounds good just not the NASCAR tone I loved. Did it too compromise with the ole lady.

I did not take my bumper off.. Just jacked the front end up so I could get underneath it.. Took an hour.. Very easy..
