hey guys SUPER pumped on this 850 turbo wagon i just bought i actually pic it up tomorrow. insanely good condition i just had a few questions about the rims and tires about it....

on tirerack.com it says for all the 18in rims and tires that it will rub unless i have the 96 from fender liners on the car.. is this true? how bad will it rub? only when i cut the wheels..... and how hard is it to replace the liners.

got it for 3000 and although it is not a manual i think i got an INSANELY sweet deal ill post pics and such later... would love any input on ANYTHING you guys have for me...

been browsing ipdusa.com a lot too and really looking for a full exhaust system, would u suggest the one off there that is about 1000 or is there something better/more affordable out there..

thanks so much guys for all the input! cant wait to get this boy on the road!!!

You'll probably have more luck on the 850 section of the forum, however for the question about exhaust I would go for the turboback obx exhaust system if your looking for affordable and a lot of people run it just with a few modifications to install as I remember from my friend installing it on his 96 turbo 850. Good sounding exhaust though in my opinion.

just from what i have seen the 18s look awesome on the ride. I have seem them with the 19s and it looks to be a bit much.. and as for the OBX system i saw that too but i was sure if that was considered "knock off" looking to do this car right i dont want to have it looking "cheap" or be putting shotty equipment on it.

thanks i didnt even see the 850 forum ill post in there as all.

located in Ft Myers FL... i need to put together my profile a bit here ill do it later today for sure

Obx exhaust is highly recommended. Great value and will only help as you continue to upgrade.
