unfortunately im already about half an inch over the diameter i wanted. A 275 would be way to tall for my car.

Looks pretty good. I'm sure this has been asked before, but have you ever considered getting a better platform to work on?

They are relatively large and heavy. I'm not trying to knock on your car, but imagine where you would be if you started off with something that wasn't a station wagon.

I haven't been following his car very closely so I don't know what it weighs, I was just going off the stock weight, which looks to be around 3100lbs.

Edit: I have a civic hatchback and a miata, so 2700lbs seems like a lot to me. But if you enjoy it then more power to you. I think it's cool too.

yah 3,100 is the curb weight or w/e but most of the time its more like 3,300. My cars around 2,700 with all the weight reduction.

yah those cars are a lot smaller and a lot lighter. hahaha

Idk someday i want to try a different car i really like the idea of an 05 sti. Or a miata but i want a hard top.
