SUKXOST, since you've lowered it with Pfadt springs, have you had any issues with the tires rubbing the fenders? Front tires look really close to the fenders and they stick out past the fender lip, which looks great! Also been curious about the rear when you put the fat tires on.

It's never rubbed a single time. In the next couple 3 weeks I'll get the other tires on, so check back. The rear has a lil more height so shouldnt be a problem in the rear either. The 315s ARE wide so I'll keep a close watch on it.

check back :P

NorCal - Yes. It only goes down into the 40s in the winter. We have SOME days when it'll pop to 35 maybe a wee bit lower. But then the sun comes out and it warms up a bit. So I can run these tires and wheels year 'round.

Clay - If you haven't experienced a clayed car, do it. You'll never go back. There's a quick test to make sure you've clalyed your 2x2 section correctly whereby you put your hand in a plastic produce bag and feel the paint. It glides like nothing you've ever felt. My neighbors kept stopping by yesterday wondering why I was doing so much. I had them try the plastic bag feel test. When they compared the clayed side to the non-clayed side, one neighbor said, "Wow. That's like sandpaper!" To which I replied, "And that's factory paint!!!! .... which is WHY I'm claying it!"

Also, after claying properly, you can then polish your car to remove any of the factory paint imperfections then you can wax your car to seal and protect the now beautiful paint. Some people skip the polish but wax won't fix the paint. It'll fill the paint in. This topic is often debated. There are great filler products like Zaino that make your car better the more you use them. And then there's the polish crowd that believes in actually repairing the paint before sealing it w/o having or needing to fill it.

Check out the Junkman videos on YouTube and it the paint and care section of the forum. After you've watched his videos you'll get the idea. Maybe see his videos on Polish, Sealing and the two bucket wash.

Thanks for taking the time, and the clarification on claybar. I'll watch the videos and get with the program.
