Ehh, I slid my car off the road left foot braking chasing a hot girl on public roads.
I broke one GFX piece and destroyed 2 tires and rims.

So guys, NEVER do dumbass things on public roads. AND, ideas on rims.? 5 X 4.5" bolt pattern? How bout tires? Ive been hearing good things about Yoko AVS100s, Kuhmo Ecstas and a few others. Anyone have some thoughts that won't break the bank.

Maybe Ill post pics of what a 93 PGT looks like on snow tires later. dry.gif

heh, my car has hubcaps... what do I know?

Thats gotta suck, breaking your rims like that. I would have figured the tire would absorb the impact.

oh and here is another kind of neat site for rims (not really that cool for buying rims but neat to play with)

tada

you can select you car and then put different size wheels, drop ur car, change paint color... lame after a bit but neat all the same

They are supposed to be pretty durable. I hope so.

The Yokos are nice, just don't expect a long life out of them, but if you drive like I used to then that's no surprise. I used them when I took my Saturn autocrossing before I got the body kit and they really stick nice. I'm debating a new set now but I might get some nicer rims first. Damn 4x100 pattern.

I dont use my ebrake. You can accomplish just as much with left foot braking. It helps stop understeer. By braking some you cause weight shift to the front. This helps the ass loosen up and in theory allows you to turn properly when you otherwise couldn't.

BTW: So no one thinks TOO bad of me. This girl is an ex GF and simply amazing in almost everyway a girl can be. Letting her go was a FAR bigger mistake then wreckless driving.

Try tires.com. Under their Discount Tires Direct, just put in your car's Year, Make, and Model, and it'll give you stock size tires and rims, and plus sizes. That site has helped me a lot for finding rims that'll fit 14" tires and match the stock rims' bolt pattern and offset (upgrading a '93 Metro hatchback from it's puny 12" stock tires and rims...
