    No rubbing at all with those wheels? I am looking to get some 18x8'' +45 with 235/40/18 and was concerned it might occasionally rub but it sounds like that won't be a problem.

    What are your impressions so far on the Conti DW? I know you are seeing low temps, but even initial impressions would be helpful. It's priced very competitively. Do you like them?

    been raining mostly but so far zero road noise which is nice. ive had no problem with hydroplaning or quick starts so water performace seems good. just have to see about summer performace later. for the price i dont think you can beat them, at least not with all the good reviews by mags and tire rack.

    little update. the conti DW seem to be doing good. the ride and noise is un-beatable. i still havnt gotten them up to temp and around this one corner by my house the back end seems to let go. another corner the front end feels like it tucks a little but both are when im just a second down the road. anytime they are hot after ive been driving awhile i havnt had one issue were id say they dont grip. a few ramps by my house i keep going faster and faster and all is well. still waiting on a hot summer day.

    definitely missing some low...

    It also blends all together in one single color blob... IMO you need something contrasting... To bad Subaru went back to those brakes in 08

    Thanks for the Conti update. I'm shopping around with an acquaintance and it's very helpful to have informed opinions.

    Oh, thanks a lot. I was planning on painting them but haven't yet because I didn't want it to be sloppy. I did paint the trunk trim though and it came out good, with some OBP duplicolor.

    Car looks sharp!

    Dude your car looks great. Remove the orange reflector in the headlight and paint the rings around the projectors and then you got some perfect murdered out-ness going on there
