Hey guys just mounted my rims yesterday, Rota Slips, 17x7.5, 45mm offset with 215/45/17 kumho SPT's








only thing i regret is...i wished they made these in 18's when i bought them 5 months ago..17's look small

i'll have some other pics up, just gotta wait for my brother to upload some pics from his XT, just finished washing and waxing and im pooped

You just cemented my decision to jump in on the sharkfin group buy. I've also got a white sedan. The slipstreams look really nice, plus they're really light, aren't they?

Great pics but I am wondering why didn't you go with 18's.

yeah unfortunately when i was in the market for rims as far as i know they dont make 18" slipstreams and i got these on clearance for $420 USD which is a heck of a deal

thanks guys..btw i have 6 different shades of white on the car :(

the tail lights are the LED v1's, i decided to go with red because i hated the look of clear ones :)
im probably going to spray a layer of some red paint on it so it looks a lil redder..it looks pink at times :klavergreg:

thanks for the comments, yeah i was using a crappy point and shoot camera, i just set it on automatic..its too dark i had to brighten it up when i was resizing

im dropped on Canuck Motorsports springs, 1.75" all around, u can find it on ebay for bout 100 bux + shipping, a whole bunch of us on bcmazda3 are lowered on these

now if only my brother could get off his ass and take some long exposure shots with his camera

how is the ride on those springs and u have camber kit right?

I have those springs and the ride is slightly stiffer then a stock setup. I don't have camber links but to be safe youy should. I have some camber issues with both the front and rear.

BTW-the wheels do look pretty good.
