Ha! I just put the same tires on my stockers a few weeks ago. I put them on my wife's car last year too. Good tires for the money.

I wouldn't stagger the tires if you have the same width front/rear. The asymmetry on the sidewalls looks a little funny.

Can't wait to see it with less wheel gap.

I'm loving the tires so far. I've put about 100 miles on them, and they just stick. The Goodyear/General combo that was on there before just felt mushy and would spin with ease. I can still get the Comp-2's to spin, but you really have to try. It's so much more planted in the corners, and steering response is significantly improved. I'm really impressed with how much a difference a better tire made on the drive ability of the car.


Not sure on what kind of timeline I'll be working with to lower the car. I plan to do it the "right" way with this since it is a nice car. I think I'm leaning towards the BC Racing DR series coilover, and the SPC front and rear camber kits. Time to start saving haha.

I have BCs, SPC front UCAs and SPC camber/toe links. Keep in mind the rear link adjusts both camber and toe at the same time.. meaning you can get only get the camber OR toe in spec. Installing the cam bolt for the rear LCA and dremeling out it's mounting point is required to do both. Also FWIW, out of all the research I did, SPC seems to have the best reviews.

SPC install:

I think the wheel/tire combo looks great and I've had a set of those tires...they are the bomb! Great in the wet and even light snow. I'm generally not a fan of silver cars but the shine on your is something else...nice ride!

So this happened recently....a jerk decided to scrape down the side of the G in a parking lot while we grocery shopped, and then drove off without leaving any info. I purposely park far away to avoid this, but in doing so, that put me out of range of the store's cameras, so no luck finding out who did it. Thankfully, State Farm has my back lol.

All said and done, the body shop had the car for 12 days. They sent my wheel out for repair, and also replaced the front tire as it had a slice in the sidewall from the hit. The front bumper cover was replaced (don't have a pic of the damage, but it was gashed as well), the passenger front fender was replaced, passenger front door skin replaced, side skirt and mud guard replaced, the rear door completely painted, and the quarter panel blended to match. They also did a full detail on the car, and even fixed some paint defects on the hood and driver's fender. The final cost came out just over $4,000, but thankfully I only had to pay my $500 deductible, and my insurance won't go up since I wasn't at fault.

I picked the car back up this morning, and the shop did a fantastic job!

That sucksssss. I purposely park in the street at my work vs. the parking lot just so there's one or two less idiots near my car.

Same here, I try to park as far away from other cars as possible, but there's always that one idiot that seems to be attracted to you like a magnet. It sucks too because there goes the budget I had been saving up for coilovers, but at least it wasn't worse. If they would have crushed the quarter panel in, that would have totaled it out.
