  • My new (to me) kicks!

    Got some new wheels, I'm not sure what they came off of though ha. I've had them for a while but they have Kuhmo R700 Rally Tires on them, which I don't need. But I need an alignment and new LCA's put on, my 17$ tires were worn down so I put these on temporarily.





    They look pretty mean, made me think they would look good on Resuwrecked's ride. I may sell the tires since I don't need them then maybe I can buy some new tires for them.

    You need to change your LCA's and get that alignment soon, otherwise these tires are going to wear rapidly and wont be worth selling.

    Also, unless your rear tires are wearing funny, you only need a two alignment.

          Yep yep, doing the LCA's tomorrow and hopefully the alignment also. So I only rode on them today.

                    Sweet! They are pretty rare cars!
                    I am not getting a GTX, I wish I was. I'm actually getting a GT


                    But yes the wheels I believe are from a GTX

                          I'd love to rally! But I don't have the time or money to do it. The difference in handling is amazing though compared to my no name brand 155/60/R13 haha But they are much heavier and you can feel it. Kind of makes the festy look like a tonka car I will keep these rims though. I have another set of 14" rims from a tracer and another set of 15's I'll post pics of them later!

                            What is LCA?

                              LCA = lower control arm; part of the front suspension. Goes from the frame (for lack of a better term) to the bottom of the steering knuckle. The sway bar also connects to it.
