for those who are shopping for a set of wheels, do not get these. i have a set on my 19" axis, 235/35/19 nitto 555 extreme and they run really ruff. i feel every peble on the street, very high road noice, and kinda cannot tolerate the ride any longer.

Serial #962118<p>I haven't worked much on it the past couple of years other than to basically be carving a new engine from a block of titanium.<p>New GT1 6 speed sequential gearbox to replace the original 5 speed.<p>Lots of new titanium suspension bits.<p>But other than that, no plans other than to get it put back together to go vintage racing.<p>How'd I score it? Lot$ of $$$ <br>Its not what you know but who you know.

Sports cars.<p>Plus 35% of 225 is a pretty short sidewall, so I would expect to feel everything

Re: NITTO 555 (volvos40t5)

what Axis rims do you have on your car? Did you have to roll your fenders to get them to fit?<p>Chris
