The speed in which I'm fapping right now would rival you stroker down the strip.

thanks guys.. i am planning on getting another set of convo's or similar. i sold them because the 295/50/15 tyres are more expensive to replace than the 20s. if the past is anything to go by i will be going through a few.

Yeh, i'm hearing you in regards to the tyres. I was lucky enough to get my 295's direct from the USA for a little over $100 each. Now you can buy chinese 20" tyres for less than that, which are perfect if you plan to chew them up. I still like the 15" look though, so i think the extra cost is well worth it.
