This is what my wife drove in the street studded tire class of the Ontario ice racing championship.I drove a '91 civic si to the class and overall champion,I believe the geo can be even better so it'll get some lovin' in the off season.

I've been single handedly instrumental in getting Swifts to cost more than a similar year Metro to insure in this province. :lol:

$770 to insure a 98 Metro

$792 to insure a 98 Swift. 8)

I took some shots of the mk5 today, so you can see that hatch with the rims.

Lowered on H&R Sport Springs
Raised on '86 Maxima wheels with 195/55/15 Dunlops.

I know the tires are a bit big, but I got them real cheap. I also know the wheels are a bit of a squeeze, but again, got them cheap - about $180 overall for the wheels and tires, mounting and balancing. I'll go a bit smaller on the tires after these wear out. The fronts rub a bit on the front of the fender liner at high steering angles, and the rears rub a bit worse on the top of the inner fender when the suspension is compressed. Spacers are out of the question unless I get longer wheel studs, as the fat wheels only leave enough to get about 6 turns on the lug nut, as opposed to 10-11 turns on the stock steel wheels. For the cheap money, I'm happy for now.

The wheels rub a little but I will get lower profile tires soon. It has limo tint and I painted the back hatch black to give it the wrap-around look.

my astro, metro, and my vino , (metro and vino were sold last year)
Image

where can i get a nicer tach (that the needle will LIGHT UP), mine is SHITTY, the needle is so dim and the thing is not easy to read. pretty useless.

but this is how i choose a tach : any help?
the top rpm of the tach must not be more than 6000 rpm because this car wont go up to 5000 rpm, if you have a 10000 rpm tach, the needle will always stay at the bottom of the gauge all the time , its pointless,,
second is,, the tach must be small enough to fit there, ( i dont want monster tach stick on the dash its too ricey),
anyone can tell me which tach is good for my need ?

The angle the head on pic was taken makes the top of the flairs look canted in,I assure you they are level. :)

Also the camber is set up for counterclockwise track direction(the direction we usually run on saturdays)hence the - camber and tucked wheel on the passenger side versus the 0 camber and flush drivers side.

They are actually pretty easy to make,a thin cut wheel in a grinder,some masking tape,body metal cut into a cresent shape to match the existing fender curve and the new pulled fender curve,welder to make them as one and some bondo,sanding and paint your done. :)
Don't plan on doing the rear unless you mean it,they are a bitch with the compound curves,inner fender extension required and the fuel filler that will need to be a part of it for a street car(my fuel tank is where the rad used to be).

1995 Swift, the way it looked the day I brought it home. Been too hot to do much work on it, but I did change the brake pads today.
