I have a hook up at a local tire/rim place and he pulled out one of the 315s and I was in awe at the width. Unfortunately, he's trying to sell me some Asanti rims to go with it and I don't know if i'm ready to drop $5700 on the whole package. I'm thinking more for road racing, those 315s would be bad ass as long as the rim that goes with them was not too heavy. Then again, a set of Nitto R1s would probably be faster on the track with less width. Who knows..........
314 at the wheels is SICK!

Regarding the 315s, I'd suspect they'd be especially heavy no?

Honestly, I would consider 314 to be very disappointing for such an expensive upgrade. I don't know what type dyno Roro did his testing on, but I put down 276 with very minor mods on a DynoJet.

Those #'s are alright to me considering I knew it was running very little boost. It was an upgrade of about 30 hp at the wheels. I've since upgraded to a smaller supercharger pulley, so it will run even more boost now. I have to get it into a shop first thought to get the correct size belt on there.

Do you have any dyno plots that you can post? The curve is always more interesting than the peak anyway. BTW, I wasn't trying to knock your efforts at all. I've always appreciated your trail blazing.

I agree with Gernby also about the supercharger. Im not tryin to knock ur efforts either Roro, i envy your s/c, but for $5000+ i would expect a lil more than +40hp ya know? Once you get it aggressivly tuned and have the other pulley installed, it should produce some better numbers.

Oh yea, i almost forgot, since we are talking about mods, i ordered a set of Axis Shines today:
19x8.5 front
19x9.5 rear.

I pick them up tomorrow. I dont have tires for them yet, im still saving for those, but i just thought i'd announce that i got a new setta wheels

I'd be happy with anything over stock. For now I'm just affording the car, before upgrades. But these pics look great!

BTW, a bit off topic, if any of you don't need your stock 18" rims anymore, I'm looking for a cheap 2nd set for winter. PM me if you wanna unload!

cspec's car :)

I posted this on CL, but since this is a more dedicated site for IS, I think it'd be nice to post here too! I'm pretty new to this forum, because it seems like it's a more dedicated 1IS forum, but I think that will begin to change slowly as more and more people buy the 2IS.

Here's my car.
