Are these splitter rods mounted to the flimsy plastic of your grille or is there more going on that tie it to your chassis that we cannot see?

I'm seeing a lot of 9-9.5 widths with stretched 225/235 tires. What I would like to see is what offset is needed with R-comp/200tw 245-255 tires on these widths.

There's no reason why body filler and scratch putty/primer won't fill that in. Unless that piece sees significant bending/torsion it should be just fine and won't crack. Filling it in with epoxy,...

If you have a tap and die set, clean the threads thoroughly with a wire brush and run a die over it. The end link nut came off like butter after.

They're supposed to last longer than the RS4's and yet be much faster. We'll see when real testing comes out to confirm. The price point, in Canada anyways, is comparable to the falkens so if they...

I wasn't a fan either until I saw them on a 2017+ 86 rear bumper. It flows very nicely with the redesigned lower bumper trim.
