Not even enough to care about it being off. It'll be somewhere around 2% I think... where's that link to the speedometer calculator for just this question... off to find it, be right back with an edit.

Edit

It will read 1.8% too fast. When your speedo reads 60, you'll actually be going 58.9. (Not enough to care about)

Looks nice! Let us know how you like those new Proxes 4. They advertise them as high performance tires with all-season rating. I'd like to get some nice performance tires that I could use all year round and for the track I'd get some drag radials.

I'm driving my b/f's RD right now while mine is in the shop and Proxy 4's are on there - the car handles like it's on rails....just sticks like glue on the pavement in wet and dry conditions.

Those wheels are really nice...

It looks like you have stock ride height. Have you thought about lowering it at all?

shawn :)

I just bought those too...they are tuner lugs that go on with a key and come with a lock nut too right?? Mine are black as well - the Rolls Royce of lugs you can buy on the market....no one is taking my babies away! A cheaper, and almost as safe as an investment than trying to insure the rims, that's for sure.
