yeah but he drives a 300c, so that speaks volumes. :D

worst car in the world. it looks vulgar as if drawn by an infant rap artist and it cant handle for poo. people get so wowed by the front they ignore the fact that they forgot to finish the back. did i mention they handle like poo?

i digress.

If you go any bigger than 18's it will look horrible when everyone can see your standard sized brakes. I LOL all the time at lancers with 19 inch slim spoke rims and 20 cent coin rotors.

For the sake of not looking stupid, unless you upgrade rotors to 330mm units, not a good idea to go any bigger than 18inch.


lol, yeah he gets new cars every 6months-1year so it wont be around for long haha,
they do sound sweeeeeeeeeet though!! gotta love a hemi.

how much would it cost to upgrade all four brakes to 330mm rotors?

maybe they thought you were asking for suspension parts instead of boot struts?

new struts off ebay are $30 a pair inc post, i cant imagine them being much dearer elsewhere.

Thats not bad at all, that way they'll last a while too, longer than second hand ones anyway.
