    Thanks guys, P205/55R16 on the steelies, two diff tires tho.. but its just for now. I heard the fds need 3mm spacers or so to make clearance so we'll see. Couple of fd sets on craigs just waiting for them to drop a bit unless i see something better

    got the key fob working. was pretty easy, didnt necessarily have to fish it out just removed the panels by the seat belts, remove two bolts and got the wire in.
    also did that jdm cross zip tie fix on the rip on my bumper lol.. temporary fix til i decide to patch it up/paint or get another front bumper

    forgot one of the lug bolts broke off a bit, so couldnt add spacers to the rear bc i didnt want to put more stress on that one side.
    heres a pic of the 5mm spacers in the front


    also painted the wiper arms lol

    Luckily studs are super easy to replace on these cars.

    thats true, any recommendations on where to get some good ones at?

    You want extended or stock? I run ARP 1007708 extended studs. And can safely run 20mm spacers with them. Possibly bigger too. You may need extended or open end lug nuts though. If stock length, it doesn't really matter. Local stores should have them on hand.

    Longer studs won't really allow you to run 'big wheels', it will allow you to run large spacers but spacers aren't necessary if you buy wheels in the offset you want.

    I loved my s204 lip! Definitely best bang for the buck.

    shoot, it doesnt actually look bad at all.. i heard the fitment is a bit weird bc you have to use a lot of bolts so it sits flush with the bumper, is that true?

    I only used 6. The two on the ends were bolts with nuts. Hat to trim about an inch off each side. Very easy to do though.

    The S204 lip fits a lot better if you have the MSP lip.
