Nice, They look good on the galant. Get it lowered like an inch or two, looks like a lot of space between the tires and the fender.

Not ricer.. I know what nutter does to his cars, if he does what he did to the last couple cars he has had, it will be far from "riced" out. He just takes it in stages.

Not my favorite rims.. but they are pretty sweet. What are the future plans?

I plan on lowering it a little but I had to wait until I got the rims on to see where I was, height wise. Its not a ricer, by far not a ricer, the wheels and the taillights are about all I have on it besides custom leather interior.

Thats cool. I don't care if people see my license plate, they can't really do much with it, thanks though.

Other than lowering it to get rid of the fender gap not much. Most of my other plans are to the interior. I had a nice stereo in there but somebody jacked it and I've never redone that, so I think thats my next step. Well after I get a good alarm.

atleast it isnt:

on an old cadillac that didnt cost a dime

massive and raised like 3 feet from the ground

a combonation of the two (when i see it, i wish the car would stop working... ironically my wish usually comes true within 1000 miles...)



not really a rim style that i like, but hey... it is ALOT better.

Looks good man, always liked those cars. Like people said, drop it and your good. Not a fan of those altezza tail lights tho.. Thats the only thing ricey on it.

I'm not a fan of alteezas on any car, period. Tinted alteezas look alright. You should definetly invest in a set of Eibach springs for a good ~1.5" drop and improved performance. The rims arent bad, wouldn't be my first choice, but it's all preference. What have you done to the car engine wise?

The problem with my car is its a 4 cyl and I've only found one company who makes lowering springs for a 4 cyl Galant, all the rest of them are specifically for 6 cyl. I looked at the Eibach springs and they say they are for the 6 cyl. I'd try them but I'm afraid that because of the weight difference on the front end that it won't lower my front end at all, since the springs will be rated for a heavier front end. I'm probably going to buy springs next week so I have a little bit of time to look for springs.

Tib - Only thing I have under the hood is a K&N air filter. I'm not talking the entire intake just the K&N replacement filter for the stock one. I have plans for underneath the hood but that will be close to the last thing I work on. I finally have a clean driving record and I want to keep it that way.

And I don't see why people think that those taillights are "ricer" taillights. They come stock on a lot of cars now that are no where near "ricer". Trust me guys my car is not a ricer. I've had ricers and this car isn't one.

What a rice rocket...

lol jp seriosly guys how can you call it a ricer when all he has had time to do to it is put the tail lights on, rims,and interior. Next he said hes getting it lowered and a sound system. The lowering is looks and handleing and the sound system is for his enjoyment. SO scince he said thats what hes doing next i would think that you would assume that he is doing cosmetics first and then hes goign to do performence. Mabey he see's it as if he does performence first hes just going to get tickets and he wants to hold off so that he wont have tickets pileing up...
Just my 2 cents :moneyeyes: :moneyeyes:
