Video has some good tips, but so far the 1 inch drop from the trd springs hasn't been causing me to alter my driving habits any. I've always had sports cars though that are often pretty low. Had a stock height bmw M235i before this and the lowered 86 actually seems easier to manage. That car would actually get stuck on occasion coming into my driveway because it didn't have a limited split dif and the dip/angle would cause one rear wheel to lift and therefore spin freely while the other didn't move.


I have the TRD wheels on my car and love them. Much better looking than any of the other factory wheel options, with the Series.Blue STI wheels being the only other ones that actually look good IMO. And agreed, a smoking deal for a set of forged wheels.

I do not get it.....
Haha goodness.

When I had my leash on the gas cap, the wind has blown the gas door into the nozzle, and the gas cap fell out of its holster. Were it not attached to the leash, the cap would have careened to the ground without hitting the car. Instead, due to the leash, it hit the fender. To prevent this from happening in the future, I cut the gas cap leash. Now, when I take the gas cap off, I set it in the holster in the fuel door, and do not have to worry about this happening again.

I'll admit, I never expected so many people on this forum to not understand this concept. And I definitely didn't expect so many replies to my comment. OP, disregard my advice, I hereby sentence myself to being silenced for voicing my opinion on a modification I thought was worthwhile in protecting the fender.

I will not be responding to any more comments on this subject, this is really off topic and getting to be nonsense. I apologize for suggesting a mod I thought was worth while.

Totally not your fault here. It's been pretty silly how many people have focused negatively on this suggestion and as the OP, I have to defend you sharing your experiences and opinion within this thread. Gotta admit, taking a critical look at that gas cap leash I am not really seeing the benefits outweighing the annoyance either. You should start a new thread called 'Free Mod - Gas Cap Leash Delete', say how to do it and the benefits, then say nothing more and just see where that goes

Was nonsense to start with. Please show us the repair bill for the damage caused by the cap hitting the car.

Yea, I've had the car for 3 years+ now, and have had it through all sorts of windy and bad weather while filling it with 93 or e85. Have yet to have a problem where the wind causes the fuel door to shut onto the pump making the cap fall out.

Yes, the 17x7.5 TRD is PTR2018160GR which is completely different from the 18" SF-2, which costs like twice as much as the former.

I visited a friend yesterday to get a loose side marker fixed and had a chat about wheels afterwards. At the value end, he suggested Enkei RPF1. It's available in much wider range of sizes and colors, and costs a little less for equivalent size. It's made with a hybrid process that isn't totally forging but still lighter than the 17" forged TRD by a non-trivial degree.

And the 18" TRD is totally out of the question, forged magnesium is already attainable at that kind of price.

Welcome to the family,

My only advice, is leave your car the way it is. The car on TRD springs and sways is the best and at it's most simplistic characteristics. Just drive it, don't garage it.

Go down the rabbit hole later on down the road, and I mean....LATER ON DOWN THE ROAD!

Combination of two things...

1) I am old and most of the cars I've had were before these things even existed
2) I've not really bought cars based on a budget range for some time, I tend to just get a car based on what I need/want at the time and what it seems worth to me at the time



A few of the cars I've owned (not in order of ownership):
1974 bmw 2002 race car

1974 bmw 2002 non race car
1976 triumph tr6

1987 Honda Civic (first car, saved up my entire childhood for this one)

1984 vw rabbit race car
1984 porsche 911sc

1991 ford escort
1994 jeep wrangler
1997 honda civic
2001 vw jetta
2003 audi a4
2005 honda s2000

2005 bmw z4
2005 bmw m3
2005 bmw m3 convertible
2005 bmw 330ci zhp
2007 ford escape

2008 bmw 335i coupe

2011 bmw 328xi
2011 porsche boxster rs60 spyder
2014 bmw m235i

2015 lexus is350 fsport
2019 toyota 86



Now that I say that, I just realized... lexus is a toyota so I guess I lied.

No question, this is the best thing to do. Probably spend my money on autocross and gas. I did buy this to drive the wheels off it. Once they fall off, I will get new wheels.
