    yeah, I miss Florida roads...here in Maryland (I'm in between Baltimore and DC)...the roads are crap. I retired from the Air Force and have been here for a while, maybe one day we'll move back to Florida :D

    It's a little more floaty compared to OEM but nothing terrible. Considering I only paid ~$500 for the set of Falkens, I figure it was worth the tradeoff since I also really like the look. I really only daily my car right now, so I prioritized the sidewall protection.

    Yeah, my car is basically 98% daily duty as well so a little more comfort and protection is what I'm looking for. Planning on 18" with a 265/35, but the new Titans are tempting as well.

    Yeah I was originally going with that setup but I was offered the 19in Titan7s at a heavy discount and couldn't pass that up. Thought I'd get as close to Spoon USA's street setup as possible.

    I love the setup you have, looks amazing. I wish that wheel color looked better on CW, but something about the white with all of the black makes silver shaded wheels look odd on CW imo. For whatever reason I'm not a huge fan of that wheel in the machine black either.

    You could go with Bronze color from USR exclusive or powder coat them whatever color you want.

    Have you installed the Spoon springs yet, or weather prohibiting that?

    I’m interested to hear if they improved on the harshness of your old Eibachs.

    Anyone with spoon springs notice if the rear driver side like half inch lower than the other side?

    I just noticed this lately. I switched out my stock wheels for some Advans and after a few weeks, I keep checking...the driver side rear is noticeably lower.

    Maybe I only noticed it since I was checking the fender clearance with my setup. I can slide my finger (lol, sounds strange) between the tire and the fender on the passenger...but not the driver side...no way I can my finger in there (lol, omg)

    that is at least $1.5M in the SF Bay Area...you guys are so lucky in the MD area...Of course, I'm assuming you didn't pay $1.5M for that beautiful pad! :)

    EDIT: Congrats!!!

    lol, it sucks guys, but we got beat out by another offer on it...so we didn't get it. So back to the drawing board for us. But that's okay, my house payment would have been twice what it is right now...so I get to save money till then.

    Honestly we want to move back to Florida...here, it can be expensive also, but not nearly as bad as LA, lol. It was 585k for that house we looked at...now my wife is eyeing 600-650k houses lol...number just keeps going up
