* Skunkd's 2015 White GC Altitude *

The wheels are 10.5 inches wide

The offset is +38 clears everything even now that I'm lowered on road magnet mid drops with 305/35/22 tires all around. Never have any rubbing full lock or over large dips.

And I won't need any spacer to fit the brembos either with this setup.

I love all of the mods you have done so far, just one question though... How come you didn't just buy an SRT? (I mean that with no sarcasm)

Because I'm an idiot, and decided to try and grow up lol.

Honestly though. I've owned performance cars all my life and wanted to tone it down this time around leaving me no excuse to make it loud and obnoxious. Because if I got an SRT I wouldn't be able to leave the motor stock and on this v6 I know I have almost zero desire in modding other than looks so it keeps me out of trouble. My neighbors appreciate it and so do my ears from years of straight pipes and loud exhausts. Theres just no chance I would have kept an SRT stock. Even if RIPP can finally figure out the coding on the 2015's to add the supercharger it uses the factory exhaust and intake and remains quiet which I may consider eventually if they work it out.

And this isn't my only car just my daily, I scoot around in my bmw when I want a sporty ride. In my eyes performance SUV's are kinda pointless but cool none the less. The Altitude has been a perfect daily driver just needed some tweaks that it should have come with from the factory and I can honestly see myself holding on to it for 10 years which is laughable because I've never owned a car for more than 3 years and usually don't keep them around for more than 2 so only time will tell. I've never purchased an extended warranty on a car but I did buy the lifetime warranty on this one mostly because of the loaner car for service appointments more than anything.

Not to mention you could mod the v6 and still be saving money over the srt

I hear ya, the SRT is very expensive and way to rich for my blood. Going the Altitude route for me was a great option because the truck comes pretty well setup (black rims, blacked out trim, etc...) and like you said really only needs some tweaks here and there to make it your own.

Keep up the good work, your starting to me us stock Altitudes look bad lol

If you have another car, the DMV should be releasing the next batch within the next two months they said to keep an eye on the DMV website for the date. I'm going to try and grab two more.

Laminx optical charcoal (which is the darkest shade) it's specifically for lights and is much thicker than standard tint.
