Those look great! Forgeline's attention to detail is pretty nice. I like the way they machined the edge of the wheel spokes after the finished color was put on. Good job and great fit!

Don't want to throw cold water here, but your tires are more than an inch in high in OD. Due to this, you may have trouble dropping. For the F, the sidewalls are much too meaty looking. A 295/30/19 rear tire would have worked out much better for you. I could not read the front tire size, but it looks to high in aspect ratio also. Also, you did not mention the offsets.

I don't know what your problem is. I've had a great experience with Sikky. The crappy quality you talk about I don't see with my headers. If you don't like em I don't really care. I do. Just wanted to share with some other F owners.

Lou yea I messed up by getting a little too high sidewalls. live and learn.

Nice!!! Those would be so easy to clean also. Didn't know you can go that wide. Any rubbing issues?

im sure i will love them once they are installed. for now they need some work until i am happy. im going to ask you this again. did you have your headers, in your hands, before they were installed on your car? did they look like the pictures i have posted with raised welds and non-circular ports? if so, and u call that quality, we have vastly different standards on quality control.

No rubbing issues. I've gotten on it hard going around corners but I haven't had two people in the back yet and done it

Offsets and wheel sizes?


And why do people bring their BS into this thread? I'm sure you issues with the headers have been discussed. I don't see the point in stating the issues in this thread.

2004 IS300 - daily
2003 IS300T - fun
