Default Hey guys i juss bought a tamiya skyline gtr...got some questions

Hey everyone. I had a couple of questions to ask you guys. I just bought a calsonic skyline gtr and the stock wheels are 27mm in width. Can i put wide tires than that on it ? and how about the height of the tires...can i put bigger tires on it too...

Hey Thahookup. just curious what surface are you driving on? More importantly . what are your plans for your new car? Are you going to race indoors on carpet, race out doors on pave? getting into drift. Just want to make sure your getting what you need. Oh if the jaco rims are dish rims. and you want to jazz up your wheel. I have a guy in my club that does sticker that goes on the rims.

hey I noticed in your advatar your in Vancouver. Are you in Van BC or Van in Wash???

I'm from Vancouver, B.C...your avatar says your from the island...(Victoria)

I'm going to be using it mainly on pavement for the most part maybe a bit if carpet around my house...but nuthing too crazy yet. I wont be racing it yet...just want to have a nice car to have as a hobby and for some fun

The skyline package was the best for the price...it included almost everything i needed to get started with. I'm still looking around for a new body something along the lines of a lexus IS400 or bmw M5, with some really nice crome wheels....know where I could find em ?

Also...how low can I make my car ?
