View Full Version : My winter setup USDM as f*k
08-22-2010, 03:25 PM
Sorry for the craptastic cell phone pics...not too sorry cuz they're crappy DROID cell phone pics, but crappy none the less. Long story short, I've been saving up for about 2.5years and I finally have begun to get some noticeable change in stance and overall car appearance. It's FAAAAAAAAR from done but here's my 300C v1:
THIS is what it looked like thursday for reference:
And YES, I need wheels, hella bad. Not to worry. Since last Tuesday already happened, TADA!!!!

looks promising. i've really liked the 300s ever since they came out. it would be fun to build one that's different than the cookie cutter ones you see everyday. wheels have an oem-ish clean look, are they off a different car? stance looks like it could use a bit of rake to make the a** not look saggy.

The wheels are 22in Option 5's. I know there's other LX's that have them but they're not off of anything specific. 22x9 +15 front and 22x10.5 +20 rear.
I still have quite a bit of tuning to do on the suspension. The front is actually a few mm higher than the rear so I'm gonna correct that in the morning...or afternoon. But tomorrow either way.
Wheels should go on in about a week or two for a proper photoshoot. Then, they're coming off cuz winter is right around the corner.

looks like you made a great choice. i'm going to have to keep these in mind in case someone with a 300 asks me for recommendations.

Yeah It looks so much better with the Wheels

i like the 300's

They're called Option 5's. The best thing is that they're actually made specifically for the LX platform. That pic is of Sam's car. Those are the prototypes that were made. His car is setup EXACTLY like mine and at that height, with no fender rolling, he still didn't rub. So, I'm pretty optimistic about the whole setup. Even at the low I am, I barely scrape and I can get in and out of everywhere I normally go. As soon as the tires get here, proper photoshoot will be coming. Then off for winter and dialing in for more aggressiveness.

I like how it doesnt look like your typical gangstered out 300c trying to look like a phantom
08-23-2010, 07:22 PM
LOL. Yeah. I **** those too NSXRguy. And they're NUMEROUS and PLENTIFULL around here. That was part of my motivation for taking it this route.
