no because you cannot mesh T5 and Pole... too much of a "stretch" if you said "waxed my rocket" that would have been better

What are you raising it to?? I'm just throwing the MBC wide open. (Worse case, the ECU will get pissed and fuel-cut, but the tune should fix that.) I'm really interested to see how far that 15G can

Started it. Drove it.

Inspected my brakes, because the rear one sounds like its dragging when I drive...

any ideas onto that? pads are good everything looks fine...

but while I had the wheel off, decided to try on the nistos that will be going onto the car very soon when I grab some tires next week for them. :D

ALSO, looks like when I put those on... im going to be needing some low :D so going to grab some new springs while im at it, and pretty much new suspension all around.

timing belt comes first though. :(

Pull your rotors, I suspect a ebrake pad that came loose from the lining. I have a set brand new if you need. :D

What tire size do you guys recommend on 17's with stock suspension so I dont have a huge wheel gap, and still make it look nice.

anyways, pretty sure my ebrake system is shot, so justbrakes tomorrow to get new pads, and have them check it out in the am... man I hate waking up early... but w/e. :(

I agree with 215/45/17 for an 850.

rob that's what im currently running on mine, and you have seen mine, you could go 205 if you want more stretch on the tire, but i think 215 on the Nistos should be fine, 2 things you gotta remember, #1 the tires i gave you on those wheels are almost drag slicks so the tire will look a lot bigger with new tires so some of the gap will fill with that, also #2 mounting 1 17" wheel with 3 15" wheels is gonna make your car sit uneven so the suspension is gonna lift. wait till u have all four on then decide. i think it will sit perfect with the correct tires on all 4 corners... but if your still unhappy ill sell you Matt's old springs.
