    Looks good!

    If you would go with 22's you don't need ramps or lift to work under the car though.

    Thanks. I searched for a while for deep dishes and finally decided on these. Appreciate the comments guys. Not lowered yet. Ordered the springs yesterday. Guess I'll do those at the same time as my headers. Gotta put a clutch in too now. So much for my tax money, lol.

    They're 18x9.5. I ordered the Eibach prokit as well as an adjustable panhard bar, just in case.

    Yea, good tires are a pretty penny. Didn't want some el cheapos and its hard to find a good tire under 200 bucks. Good luck with the 10.5's, they're gonna be expensive.

    I like. I have the same wheels. I notice you didn't go with the staggered lip front vs. back. It makes for a much different look. Very nice. Check out my profile pick to see what it looks like dropped an inch with staggered lip.

    I like those wheels. I wanted Ruff wheels before but the dealers I found that had them were all a pain in the as to deal with. I would have bought some if I could have found a reputable dealer that actually had them in the right offset.

    they are nice wheels, but the bolt pattern is not the correct one.
    5x120 is not 5x120.65
    This will cause the lugnuts to not be centered and even when torqued, the pressure is not applied uniformely around the lugnut, making them way more prone to become loose, which is what has been happening to people putting 5x120 wheels.

    I'd recommend finding wheels w/ proper bolt patterns.
    Nice bike, though !!!

    Getting the wheels was a nightmare. Too many distributor/dealers.

    The 08 white 600 has a little blue in it. Looks pretty good. Suzuki is always a pretty good choice.

    I like it. RUFFs are nice wheels. Cooper Zeon tires are pretty good tires as well. Had Zeons on my last car. Lasted me 2-1/2 years since the car was a DD...Like my current ride.

    I got the wheels and tires through a local place who had the best price and had a good rep. The wheels cost me 1140 shipped. The lugnuts and locking lugs were included in this price. The tires are normally over 200 apiece, but I got them for 188 each. I wanted the coopers or some KDW's, but leaned toward the Coopers cuz of price and also cutting a 1.9 60 ft. on some worn out ones. The KDW noise factor also played a part. My turn key price after tax was 1941.00. The mount and balance was included, and I talked the shop into throwin in an alignment. Kinda steep, but not as steep as others I've seen. You can get the black wheels with the polished lip for about 300-400 bucks cheaper than the chrome. No issues thus far, keeping a steady check on the lugs to make sure they're not coming loose. None so far. I'm very happy to say the least, lol.
