Advan RZ-DF/Challenge Lip and a bunch of other stuff

Hi all,

Took some pics today of the car as it is nearly complete. I really like the wheels and especially the lip. Fitment and quality of the lip is perfect and I think combined with the wheels, it gives me the aggressive look I was trying to achieve.

Regarding the wheels, I put Vreds in 275/30/19 front and 295/30/19 rear and there's no rubbing and I saved 6.5lbs per wheel on the front and 8.5lbs per wheel on the rear (a 30lb reduction in unsprung weight!!) vs. the original ZCP wheels with Vred 255/35/19 and 275/35/19.

I'd like to thank Julius at WSTO, Ilia at IND, Peter at ACG, Evan at Tischer and Aleks at Alekshop for all the help on getting the car to this point! I'm really happy with how the car has turned out!

How much more do the tires weigh than stock?

Don't know for sure but I would assume a pound - two at the most. I know the wheel weight delta is approx. 8-9lbs each.

Looks aggressive, I like it.
Barry, when you have a free moment, could you do me a favour and measure the distance from you fender to the ground or center of the wheel. I need to re-adjust my coils and like how the Eibach springs sit on your car.
Thanks.

LOL...Mike. Good thing I'm pouring money into the E46, instead of dad's E90. Then I'd look like a super super poser.

Thanks! I'm at ~14 front and rear from the center line of the wheel.
