your speedometer is 2.5% to fast
so when your speedo reads 60 mph you are really going 58.5 mph

you can try it here

If it weren't for the ginormous space left by our small brakes, I'd almost consider getting those. But I'll stick with my 02 17'*.

you could be the first to lead a bigger brake upgrade. I know many would follow. (me..only because the way I drive...boosty can back me up that I should have bigger brakes)

It is sooo much better lookin with those 18 on there.

Though you have to show some love for the body color 3 spoke rims. I like those ones too just not as much as the 18s.
