Man, thats super cheap for a pair of tires. Im really interested to see how the 45 profile tire looks on the front. I personally like the big tire look, and most people go with smaller 40 sidewall.
Yup, I did a lot of research aswell, and after amazon had them for like $70 each plus free shipping, I couldn’t refuse that offer. I’ll update on how they feel once they are installed.very cheap, Im looking into them now for 16"
Seem to have good reviews, and the Donut guys did a hi/low with them and said they werent bad either
Thank you! I feel like I'm driving a truck again lol since the car is higher up, 2 inches higher to be exact!Gosh, that looks good.
I just had a SSR deal fall through (seller was... well, nevermind), and really want another set.
Sick setup dude
Yea I wish there was a 215/40r17 for the federal ss595 but sadly there isn't.. The 215/45r17 front tire is a few MM smaller (96.75mm) than the 245/40r17 rears (98mm), so the setup is even, but the fronts do rub on the inner body wall so I'm officially gonna say don't run a 215/45r17 on the front of an mr2. Not worth it. I'm gonna hammer the inner wall a bit eventually to see if i can dent it inward to give me a MM or two of clearance.Man, thats super cheap for a pair of tires.

No, I measured from the jack point on the cars rails, it was 4 inches and now its 6 exactly. And as for the wing im thinking in order: Greddy, Autopista, Aeroware.one inch, not two.
You went from 15 to 17, remember that one of those inches will be above the hub/not raising your car any further
Tell you what, since it's so wild driving the 'truck' just let me pay you for shipping and you send them over here to NC haha
Looks good man
yea I think i'm gonna tap the parts it rubs with a hammer to move them inward a bit. I like the 45 front, but now that I look at it I wish my rears were slightly bigger aswell.Man, its tough that the front tire rubs because IMO this looks so much better than running a 40 series tire in front. Ive always felt that 17s are on the edge of being too big for the MR2, but with a meaty tire I think it looks great. How often are you rubbing? Just at full lock, or over bumps, or when?
If the distributor is still working you can replace all the seals inside.Ok so valve cover gasket and the water neck o ring are installed. My mechanic says that theres oil in my distributer too. Any idea where to get a new one? Toyota? I'm looking for a new one because he said he hasnt rebuilt one in a long time and doesn't feel comfortable doing it.

He is certified but he said he hasn't done it in so long and for the cost labor it would just be worth buying another new one.Mechanic doesn't feel comfortable replacing seals in a distributor? Uhhhh.... not sure I'd really trust that guy if his mechanical comfort level stops before replacing some small oil seals...
