Haha I can't believe how quiet they are!!!!! I was actually disappointed haha I love it tho! They stick out a good bit so I for some reason am fascinated and watch me spin haha not on the road tho but the little wheelin I did I was all excited over it lol.

I'm looking at bump stops for the rear! Suggestions? The front I'm just going to use hockey pucks. Was thinking maybe I could rig something up using hockey pucks in the rear?

Weld a small plate to your ubolt plate and make adjustable plates off of it. Easiest way ive seen of making rear bump stops.

Would look funny with 13 hockey pucks to reach your rear axle hanging from your stock bump stop spot lol.

Do the chalk test to determine the appropriate pressure to run. I run around 27 psi and with 12k miles on them my tires still look new.

They recently starting doing road side inspections on the road I take to work... I'll be screwed, no flares
I got stopped at one of those roadside inspections, got a ticket for "oversize tires" lol

It was like 50 dollars. Paid it and went on with my life lol
