I wish I knew this last night before I attacked the goo with brake cleaner and a scotch brite. That took forever

Fedex man came bringing tidings of great joy 

 

due to a cock up I have 4 wheels painted but not the right 4. I got 5 total 3 8.5 and 2 9.5. So I picked the best 2 8.5's and prepped them, and while spraying realized they were different offsets. So I have to prep(ugh, wetsanding wheels blows) and shoot the 5th wheel which matches the one whose offset I want to run.

Could you go wider in the back..say 285?

Yes, but i'm happy with the diameter of the 265/35 vs the 285/35

Last night Jonah and I went to the Crawford auto museum in Cleveland and met a fellow turbo straight 6 nissan. Skyline felt right at home since it parks 12 inches from an S30 every night in the garage. Still have to refinish the last front wheel, will get on that soon because my fingers are healed from sanding the other 4. Really itching to see what it looks like on all 4 Nismo wheels

I know where there is a RB that has had about $45k thrown at it still in the wrapper. Can come with a wide-bodied R32 GTR for around $50k all told.

If I currently had FU money I would absolutely buy it. I'm not there yet, someday but not yet
