Thank you.

I'm thinking about getting another set of 9.5 rears for the front of mine and then adding spacers on the rear to achieve a similar affect.
Mine came with the 19's but switched to 18's, if you like the look, why spend more money on 9.5's ..just get spacers like I did.

10mm like FRRSquad said above.

Yellow headlights

That would not be a local regulation, but FMVSS Standard 108 http://fmvss108.tripod.com/fmvss108text.htm, which vehicles in all states must comply with and which references for lamp color:

"S5.1.5 The color in all lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment to which this standard applies shall comply with SAE Standard
J578c, Color Specification for Electric Signal Lighting Devices, February 1977."

I also found this legal interpretation on headlamp color, written it 2000: http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/...21118.ztv.html

I have not had the fortitude to wade through all the governemntal mumbo-jumbo, but it appears yellow was acceptable for headlamps at one time, but may or may not be now.

I'm thinking about 9.5s in the front to cut down on understeer and enable rotation.

Have you had it done yet? If so, thoughts?
