using bigger tires (wrong profile) will lead to incorrect speedo readings... the 16" and 17" rims are expensive for me and if i decided to use the correct profile (205/40/16) the rim will get bent during the first 24 hours of usage due to our shitty roads

also i am not aiming for filling in gaps... that will be just how the car looks... i want the handling part without the bottoming down problem... i know the Apex kit lower the car some 3.5 CM so i was thinking of getting me a set and use 3.0cm spring seats to compensate for the drop in ride height... i know part of the handling comes from a lower center of gravity but i am willing to sacrifice some of that in exchange of bottoming down protection

speedo is not the problem...

You are a funny man... You want to fuck, but don't want to stick it in... :D

bigger profile is the solution... Trust me... I will try these days 205/55-R16 and see how it comes...
205/40-R16 is tooooo small.. Better use 195/45-R16, or 205/50-R16....

Very nice! I really want a new steering wheel... I've tried a few times to remove mine but I can't get it to budge!

Any tips or tricks?

the secret here is to use maximum force... hold it firmly with both hands and literally stand up on your feet and pull the hell out of it while shaking it side to side... that is after you remove the center bolt.

replacing dad's steering wheel took me 15 minutes of struggle to get it out... but after i knew how it took me 1 minute to remove mine.

yeah, I thought that would be the case... I just didn't want to break anything (might have to go to the gym first too :lol: )

well... it is not that hard to yank off the steering column... you just need good support at your feet while you are doing so
