Well a good set of rims & low profile tyre's could be considered " go fast bits ". Better tyres allow you to go faster, around corner's & so on. lol. Drop the ride height & add in some poly bushes, and you have something that handles 100 times better than stock, when your throwing it around. But i shouldn't have to say that on here right. :lol:

I'm so glad i'm long off my P's.

I have seen a set of rims shattered at the wreckers. The car wasn't that bad really but the rims were very thin and cracked up every one of them. You can spot a weak design pretty easily. I had a set of 17" mags that were really nice and strong. I hit big pot holes a couple of times and damaged tyres but the rims were perfect.
