    I don't think I want to spend $3,000 for a set of wheels.

    Nils - D@mn you for selling your CE28's without talking to me first. I'm buying a new set as we speak.


    Richard - I had the feeling since you've been posting on NSXPrime lately. Great buy, you just need KW V3's and a new set of wheels.

    I'll be selling my current 5Zigen ProRacer GN+s once I get my CE28's.

    They are:

    17x7.5 +38
    18x9.5 +40

    235/40-17 Bridgestone REO1R
    265/35-18 Bridgestone RE01R (currently brand new)


    Let me know if you might be interested:

    17x9 are too wide for the front unless u plan to roll fenders. Good choice Richard. Now u need to sell the Evo n daily this beauty.

    You can't really roll the front fenders and gain anything useful without bending the crap out of them and ruining them.

    You'll have to go with a wider front fender, either one of the many widebody kits, or Downforces 10mm wider front fender, even then, a 9" wide front wheel will greatly reduce your steering lock and will rub the inner chassis before full lock. Heck, a 8" wide tire will just barely rub as well. The wider you go - offset and wheel width, the earlier it will rub.

    17x8 with a 38mm offset is perfect. JUST touches/rubs at full lock but not bad.

    NSXs have TINY wheel wells. One of the downfalls of the car IMO. You can go wider and wider (18x10 front -on the FXMD car) but you'll have NO turning radius.

    I can't sell the Evo, because I have to have a car with a back seat, so I can drive my kids around. I don't want to sell my GG IX MR anyway, its been a fantastic DD. It has 106,000 miles on it now, and nothing has ever broke. Replaced the clutch at 72,000 miles, but that's a wear item. I will keep it forever.

    Richard, you're going to have to buy a crew cab pickup or big SUV to carry kids and tow your future race car.
    Where do you store all of your cars BTW?

    '91 Mariner Blue Miata project AKA Napoleon

    As of today, I only have 2 cars, and I have 2 parking spaces at my condo. Tomorrow when I pick up the NSX, I will have 3 cars. I will store one of them at another condo garage about 1 mile away from me, which is owned by a family member, who only needs one parking space. I guess I technically own my daughter's Mustang, so that makes 4 cars. She has a resident parking permit at the University where she lives in the dorm. During the summer, she parks it in her mom's driveway. Have a lot of cars is not a problem. Or if it is problem, it is exactly the kind of problem I want to have. Kailo, who runs OpenTrackRacing, owns 60 cars, including Porsches, Vipers, Corvettes, Formula Continentals, a Stohr, etc. etc. He stores them in a warehouse, I think. Can you imagine his car insurance bill?

    Wow, you're the first person I've met with 100k+ miles on a Evo with the Evo still running well! You must either baby it (yeah right) or really maintain it well.

    Would you say that you'd keep the s2k and NSX forever as well or is it too early for a verdict on those two?

    I will eventually destroy the S2K on the track. I will probably keep the NSX forever, unless it appreciates substantially in value (which I don't think will happen for about 10 years), and then I might sell it if I need the money.

    I maintain the Evo exactly like Mitsubishi says in the owner's manual, except that I change the synthetic oil twice as often. I drive it hard on the street, but have only tracked it twice, early in its life. If you don't modify an Evo, it's one of the most dependable cars on the planet, the way it came from the factory. It was originally built to stand up to rallying. It's like a little tank.
