Thanks. Also, what is the overall diameter difference between these and stock with the tires you have?

By chance do you have any more pics with the front wheels straight (same angle as the rear? If not, really appreciate the answers.

Looks good. Herrafrush, lol.

I'm thinking about those in gold, since they are at a closeout price of $230/rim atm @tirerack. Not too sure though...

I'm guessing that at the limit it should be pretty similar: smaller radius X somewhat more friction = similar force moment.

I've been using Vapor X:60 sticks for a while, and they've held up well. I've only broken 1/3. My back-up, which was my main stick for a while, seems weak somewhere in the heel though, but it's still got a lot of resistance when I flex it. Then again, I've seen someone break their stick on the one side, and continue to play with it, unknowingly, as it was still attached on the front-side of the shaft. It didn't last very long. But, to me, it highlighted the "weaknesses" in the CF/composite build. On the one hand, very light and very strong. On the other, the integrity of that strength can be, in some cases, subtly compromised. That's when you end up with a stick like I have for my secondary. It's a 110 pro flex, and I used to rip shots with it. However, now, everything seems to flub because, I suspect, there is some give which hasn't yet gave.

In any case, I was thinking of getting a new stick recently: Bauer Total One, Kane (curve), 102 flex, Lie 6 FTW! I love this pattern.

Sorry, I am not trying to jack your thread.
Hockey talk is welcome here IMO

I'll have to try on some of the newer Bauer gloves, they were going downhill for a bit IMO.

One of my sticks is halfway cracked near the heel and the other mid way down the blade.

Currently using Warrior sticks (dols), Gionta curve when playing offense and Lidstrom when playing D. Also have an old Warrior MacDaddy Kovalchuk but I had using that stick, blade is so much shorter I always miss the puck lol

By the math the new setup is 5.5MM shorter. In reality it appeared greater than that but I didn't measure it.

I did measure the tread width.. 7.5" on the OEM tires vs 9.1" on the 235/40 AD08s... stock size (215/45) AD08s are 8.0" tread width and the AD08s I have on my ITR (205/50) have a tread width of 7.7 so it wasn't my imagination that the tread width on these stock tires is small.

What specific angles did you want the car with the wheels straight? I can take whatever pics you want but with the wheels straight only took side profile and photos looking down the side of the car so just let me know what you want and I'll make it happen.

The first pic of your car outside but with the front wheel straight would be great.

What are your thoughts about 235/45 tires? I'd like to stay close to stock overall diameter.

BTW, great looking car

The 235/40s are .2" shorter, 235/45s are .7" taller.

With the 235/40/17s the speedo is off by ~ .5 mph at 60 (car is going 59.5 but reading 60).. assuming the speedo is accurate of course.

I'll take some front qtr shots when it's light out

Thanks! :beer:

Unpainted iron and steel both rust very quickly on the surface. It's just surface rust though.

Nice thread! The light colored wheels really accentuate the wheel gap. From a visual standpoint, all these cars need are quality performance wheels/tires and suspension work. Aside from that, they are excellent looking cars.

Sammy you hit the nail on the head. All these cars really need is just that visually. Great looking BRZ Dave!
