Pic uploader is being a turd. Thoughts on this plate? Feel like it's a subtle nod that those in the know will appreciate, while the xxx xxx format matches our local plates.

My offices are in Kittanning and downtown, on Stanwix. Justin and I tried to grab a drink on one of my trips last year, except I got too wrapped up with work. Once everything blows over, I do need to make another trip back. An m5 dinner at Butcher & the Rye might be the ticket.

I’ve actually never been to Butcher & the Rye. I’ve been to their other restaurants...been wanting to go there though. Would be a chance for a nice photo opp too.
3 V10s screaming through the streets of downtown echoing off the buildings That would be something...but we’d have to settle with 2 v10s unless you do a cross country trek lol. I’m definitely the quietest with just a Corsa sec3 ha

Welp got the new fronts...still waiting on the rears.

Question for those coming from super sports to p4s.....do you think the sidewall is shorter/smaller on the p4s when comparing the two? It looks that way to me and these are the same 255/35/20s. That sidewall looks super short and worrying me a bit (my finger pointing to beginning of the sidewall/edge of rim protector.)

Do you have a dedicated build thread, with pics etc? New to the forum (well ... been lurking a while) and can't seem to find such threads on many folks profiles.
Will do.. I'll post one of these days. Its 4 years in the making.

@horse86 305/30/19 PSS to 295/35/19 PSS to 305/30/19 PS4S for sidewall comparison. Now I'm on 305 AD08R because the PS4S were on back order when I needed new shoes. Yes, my wheels need new powder coating....

Thanks woody. Good comparison. I like the p4s style of the sidewalls better. Never really was a fan of the Super Sports side wall

And per popular request to post a pic of my wheels ;) This is the best I have to show the color against the space grey. It’s a perfect match. BBS FTW
