    Ok guys if you dont know what my car currently looks like it looks like this


    I changed my mind on what exactly i want my car to look like, so i need a few opinions... I want to throw some skinnys on the front and some M/T ET Streets on the rear, I have SPORTLINE springs so i highly doubt a 325 DR would fit on the rear so i would probably need springs. Heres the thing, i want it jacked up with the meaty tires on it but i still kinda want a lowered car... If i can fit the tires on the car with the sportlines then thatd be great! What do you guys think and what are some opinions on some Rims, Tires and Springs. BTW i was thinking stranos...

    Your gonna be riding around on the streets with drag strip setup? To get extra space in the back then maybe you can just put the stock springs in without the rubber spacer and do the heater hose mod and you can fit a fat tire in back.

    its the ET Street radials, they arent too bad.. A lot of people i know do it and i dont drive far anyways... One problem is i dont have the stock springs.

    The skinny and big look on our cars just works. I really was skeptical about it when I ordered my track wheels. This is at stock ride height:

    i seen in GMHTP they are making front A-arms that drop teh front an inch with out lowering springs... that might give you the look you want...

    I had mine setup with drop on the front and stock springs in back. Had to raise it back more because of the aftermarket cats dragging ground, but looked good with my 315's out back.

    I like your current wheels, they'd look awesome on a red TA. lol

    Maybe you can borrow someone's set of skinny's for a day and see how the ride and handling changes.
