can you go into more detail on your rear wheel / tire setup? offsets / width / tires etc...

do you rub at all? I am trying to figure out what I can get away with on my car as I need new tires before my track day next month.

good looking car! I like the LCI tails

Gorgeous car! I might have to add SG to my list of "want" colors as yours is amazing!

No problem and thanks for the kind words!

Front
+25 or 27 up front (sorry don't remember), 19"x9.5"
Tires are PSS 245/35/19

Rear
+22, 19"x11"
Tires are PSS 295/30/19

The wheels came with 245's up front which is way too much stretch IMO. I'll most definitely be switching to 255 when it's time to replace them. The rear does slightly rub (but I'm lowered) but I'm really not concerned. I think it's rubbing against the liner towards the rear bumper.

Overall, very happy with this setup and got a good deal on them!

Thanks! If you want to add SGM, it'll have to be an 08, but boy would I love to see your mods go to an SGM sedan!!

Your car looks awesome. Just read you thread from the beginning. Well done.

Curious about your 245F and 295R tire set up on an N/A platform. I presume you've got gobs of rear traction and you so you will tend to understeer quite a bit. Just curious.

Thank you very much. Big fan of your car as well. It's amazing that this is an 02/08 build with almost 75k miles. The OP really took good care of her.

As for the tire setup, I absolutely agree, it's not ideal. There's a hint of understeer, but it's not as aggressive as you might think. I'll be switching to 255 next spring, maybe even 265 but I doubt that'll work without some camber, we'll see.

Check your air filters boys and girls. Been on a few mountain runs lately

Your car is what made me decide to go with the Swift Spec-R springs, looks to be a perfect drop.

I have a set of 19x9.5 and 19x10 BBS LMRs in diamond black sitting in my house waiting to be put on after i install the springs.

How do you like the ride?

I love the Swifts. The drop is perfect for me, I honestly wouldn't want to go any lower.

The ride is great! When I went from 35 to 30 at the rear, you could feel the ride became a little stiffer. IMHO, these springs make the car a little stiffer too but still completely OEM-ish. You absolutely cannot go wrong with these, go for it!

P.S. The front looks a tad higher than it actually looks because the front tires are a little too stretched.

Detailed the car before it got too cold. Had some nasty swirls, no idea how they happened (I wash my own car). I guess it's time to buy new mitts and MF towels.

tbh i'm not a huge fan of those wheels i think the stock 19s or the competition package wheels suite the car better. just my preference

Here are some pics of mostly my car from the mountain run yesterday. Weather was perfect so it was nice to get one in before winter arrives. These were just taken with a point and shoot camera
