I have no clue what % tint that was,if I do tint these windows it will be mild.
Oh ok, I must have not looked hard enough at the wheels. Those Helo Maxx wheels will look great.

I did 20% tint on my '95 Cobra and loved it but my old '05 STi had 35% all the way around and it was less noticeable when it came to police attraction, haha.

Did you upgrade your gears when you did your lift & tires?

I haven't regeared yet,it's on my to do list. I plan on doing some 4:88 gears and a programmer to waken the truck up a bit

Luckily going from a 265 to a 285 isn't going to need any major changes like gears. I wanted to lift it but since it's my daily I'm going to keep the stock height.

You'll definitely love the gear & programmer upgrades. Gears woke my Cobra up A LOT.

Where are you located?

If my commute wasn't so long I would consider lifting it. I have to drive two cities away to get to work. The new wheels will be wider (and not to mention look better) and the new tires will be taller and wider so it'll look a lot better. They will fill up the wheel wells nicely.

What part of SC? I looked into moving there a while back. The Northwest section.

I follow a few YouTube channels that are based out of SC which is what made me want to move out there. If I could make the money I make here down there and have farmland, I'd move.
