I used paint stripper before. It works well. Just needs good prep. I have bead blasted parts too. Actually fun.

No, I figured I would post that up so others would understand the dangers of chemicals and welding. I use to use brake cleaner to clean stuff before welding it then I ran across that article a few years ago. Pretty serious stuff.

Here is the problem: I wanted the large tire in the rear look, and I wanted a deeper concave rim in the rear than the front, which means a different offset. There was limited sizes, so in the end the rear had slight poke and the front had slight tuck. If I would have gone square then I would have had large poke in the front.

Rear poke:



Front tuck:




Here is the fix:






The fronts were pretty straight forward. The rears required the parking brakes and the hub to be removed, so they each took an extra 10-15 minutes, but they weren't bad at all:





Poke is now equal (and minor). If I do some camber sometime in the future then they will be perfectly flush or tucked.

Tires are ready and waiting for when I need them. I got them on Tirerack. Free shipping to my door. Came in like two to three days. $400 cheaper than getting them at Les Schwab, which is why I wanted to get them now and have them ready just in case. Michelin Pilot Sport 4S:
