Got my new rear barrels on late last night

Just got my rear barrels changed out to ones with and extra .5" of lip.....thanks to Yuya at VIP modular and Darwin at Sonic MS.

Here's a couple of low-res pics i took w/ my camera phone.

A credit card can rest on the lip now without any overhang!

beautiful, the drop is clean too....its going to be tough with the RS kit since the edge flares out while the AMG kit tapers in making it easier to clear driveways...but the RS kit looks good tho, gone thru 2 of them already

Those rims look SICK!!!! What are they? I always think that the bigger and spacier (open) the rim, the better they look on the 208s.

they are the VIP Modular VR-03's. 20X8.5 front and 20X10 rear. Tires are 225/35/20 front and 245/35/20 rear......I'm probably going to change out the rear for 245/30/20 rear....or even do a super stretch of 225/35/20 rear to get rid of the rubbing entirely.

Go with Kleemann, makes more power and customer service is MUCH better! Talk to Cory and tell him I sent you.

but, NOBODY can give me a good price on Kleemann products.....I have a hook up with Renntech =)

you can see, by the mods on my car, that I don't have a problem spending money on good products, however, I do make perfectly sure that I am being taken care of on pricing!
