On the way to the tire shop I pulled out the ABS fuse and laid some rubber down during an obnoxiously loud all wheel drift. The ABS/ESP warning lights came on but as soon as I put the fuse back and restarted, they all went away.
can you guess which tires are mine?
hummmm.... might be nice with a 3" suspension lift
the rotors have a tiny little bit of scoring, but they're quiet and smooth so I'm not worried about it.
went to lunch, came back an hour later
now that's what I'm talking bout!
I noticed the acceleration is a bit off due to the much larger diameter, but the trade off is that I have a much smoother ride, and maybe even better handling thanks to the softer rubber compund and extra width.
I didn't even bother shaving down the bolts on the front suspension uprights, they had a good 1/4" of clearance. Also I'm happy to report so far there's no rubbing issues at all. The only problem I could imagine is during full compression of the front suspension, maybe the tire could contact the fender liner, but to me that would be a minor issue.
Now I gotta start working on my next mod...
