New Wheels

Sorry they aren't shined up, its supposed to thunderstorm the next two days and I couldn't justify a wash n wax. My car has nothing done with the suspension and won't for a year (I've spent what I want to this year).

Will look great once lowered. You should also paint your calipers and drum covers as well.

Haha yea, it is a never ending thing. Thats what I've been looking into today. I really thinking just black calipers and drums is the way to go. As obtaining color matched high temp paint will be difficult where I am at (I called a couple places).

The other thing I am looking at is new rotors because they are rusty looking.

As for lowering it. I know its not optimal, but I'm considering doing SSC springs and then doing the rest of the suspension next summer. With the lower miles and how I drive, I don't think I have to worry about my struts and shocks blowing out.

Black would be the way to go IMO. I wouldn't do orange.
