Get rid of that spare wheel/tire set....make room in your garage!

Post by AidanDawn2000 »

Exciting times here folks! After driving my car, my parents have experienced for themselves how sketchy it is in the safety department and have subsequently approved a Q4 fiscal stimulus package to pay for part of some safety focused upgrades.

I'll be looking very hard at the volvo brake upgrade but I also figure that with the narrow stock wheel/tire package I have now that will really just help lock up my rubber even faster. So i'm posting here and if anyone has something a bit wider than stock that would be great! With decent tires already mounted would be perfection!

Thanks!

Why didn’t I think of that? Scare the bank of Mom and Dad within an inch of their lives, to get them to fund... Well played!
