The tint is cool. Be careful if you ever take her to Cali though. She'll get you in trouble.
Nice rims too. How's the ride on the Tanabe's

Ride's rough but whats a little discomfort when you look so good? Lol. Its really not to bad, been compared to a euro ride. More specifically like a Saab. I don't mind unless the wife's in the car. She doesn't like it so it makes me sensitive to it also.

As for the tint, it's illegal here in Ohio too, but I don't hot rod much so no police attention for the time being has left them intact. On an overcast day it is like looking into a mirror... I love it.

Looks awesome! Never been a fan of mirror tints but it works well on your car.

Lowered V's look so good. I want to do it but I can't stand a non OEM ride feel :(

215/50/17 with a some rub at full turn and a lil rub at about 1/2 turn for just a split second. Nothing that needs to be addressed, its not bad enough to tear the tires or anything. If you look in the wheel well, in the center there's a little band of plastic that sticks out. I pretty much have worn this flat to even with the rest of the well.I was trying to compensate for rough ride by getting all the sidewall I could. Next time I will probably go with 45 though. Good catch ;)

Hey Mogh and welcome to the forums!

How's the silver for keeping clean, or I mean, hiding the dirt? My blue one is ashocker for looking dirty the day after she's been washed :p

So I got bored today and painted my rims before I put them back on for the summer. I think they look tons better than before.





The only problem is now they show ALL the dirt. :(

Oh, and I've got plans for the center cap.

I like it! I have a slightly reflective tint and haven't had an issue. Although, I think the flowers give the cops a hint that I'm usually up to really boring uneventful things and not up to anything criminal. :)

My buddy has been bugging me to do it forever, I never realized the difference it would make. Now I need to just bite the bullet and get new ones. I bought them used and they all have a bit of rash on them somewhere. (Not to mention the tire place ate them up while they were mounting the tires)

I'm looking for some center Nissan caps from some S plastic hubcaps. If anyone has their factory hubcaps laying around or knows where to get 4 of those emblems. Just called the stealership and they sell the whole thing only for 60 bucks.

It's always nice to replace the crapping center caps with OEM Nissan ones. Makes the aftermarket rims look OEM.

About your reflective tint, that is totally illegal here but looks sick regardless of the laws.
