I wouldn't say that the "ratty" look is what I'm going for, to be honest. I guess what happened was that i got the car in a certain way and with all the mishaps it ended up becoming what it is now.

It's nothing to take seriously to me, I just piece together what I like and try to add some of my own character to it. I guess it would be a "rat" in that aspect so I just embrace that for what it's worth. And besides, what fun is it in looking like everybody else out there right? Hehe tongue 

Oh, well the only reason I used the word "rat" was because you used it first in the thread title! lol.

The visors... the part that looks weird is where the tape is, looks all uneven.

Haha true true, I couldn't think of a better title so I just went with that since that's what people call my car lol

But yeah with the visors, it was a mock up with duck tape. I'll get some double sided tape when the time comes for it Approve!

If only you were nearby to fix mine haha

As for now, I've pulled the fender to get it as close as I can to how it originally was. Looks good enough for now lol

Rotated my tires today, first time since I've got them back in April

Low car, high jack struggles lol



Checkin out the undercarriage carnage..



The two rear tires, very minimal wear on these. Just a bit of camber wear and some scuffs from rubbing. Rear was never aligned or flipped.



One of the front tires, the worse one of the two. Had the fronts flipped after the first 3000 miles on them, put a bit over 5000 miles on them since.



Overall satisfied with the life of these tires so far. Obviously seeing some accelerated tire wear but I expected that with how I drive on them and the fact that they are soft compound summer tires. Yes! Very Happy

you cant beat T1R for the way they make your car feel, but the major downside is the wear, they do wear really quickly

Yeah normally I think stuff like that is plain dumb, but it matches your style without really affecting the output, plus just having the one stripe actually looks aggressive!
