A couple of parts I’ve been waiting on have come during the holidays for the VW project. The drop plates for the rear are made out of some serious hunks of steel. I can’t wait to wrench away this weekend and finally get the truck dropped on those wheels I’ve had chilling. The sparco hub and steering wheel will also be a nice touch.
Check out my little collection of JDM old school rides.
If you get the chance swing by your local magazine dealer and get the new Super Street. This is one of the best issues I’ve seen in a while. It’s all dedicated with cars that are suited for wheel fitment. A few of my friends have cars featured in this issue. They also do an interview with Mark Arcenal. It’s one of those issues you’ll want to have to look back on years from now.
Small wheels are cool too. I’ve always liked the prices on 15″ tires. I have acquired the taste for big wheels too, but on certain cars small kicks just look right. There’s nothing quite like an old school ride on a low offset wide/little wheel. A skyline wouldn’t be my first pick for some 15’s. As you can see it looks pretty clean, and when you are constantly going sideways you can’t beat $50 a pop tires.
