Re: Lowered wk2

Im thinking those rims look a little like spare tires

I like the drop maybe even drop some more..

Maybe some thicker rubber and/or meatier rim?

I would go for a bigger rim and tires that have the same amount of sidewall to fill up those wheel wells more.

Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
Wow! That's lowered? What's the difference from stock to lowered? What was the advertised spring drop? I guess after having my WK1 SRT slammed with bwoodys and my current WK2 SRT riding/looking lower that seems really high. Looks good though.

Re: Lowered wk2

I like the drop, but I'm not a huge fan of the WK1 SRT wheels on the WK2. I hate saying that since I know you dropped $$ on the set, but it just doesn't seem to flow.

Re: Lowered wk2

Yeah for some reason the pics do make the tires look small but in person it looks nothing like that its crazy. And the drop is 1.5f 2.0rear. And was told it would settle down alittle more. But I love it.
