          time for some 25s :P

          back when I had my e34 I got the 90mm stud kit and bought pairs of 5,10,15,20 and 25mm spacers - perfect fitment for any of the wheels in my collection :)

            i have 25's but they're for the rear, I think I'm poking enough as it is.

            Took a grinder to it, doesn't run as bad but still rbs when I'm reversing. I'm thinking maybe time for new wheel bearings I did them two years ago but I'm sure running big heavy cast wheels takes its toll on them

              Did we actually put wheel bearings on? I don't remember that.

                        most junkyards now don't like to sell oil pans off engines because of the fluids that leak out and contaminate the ground, which ruins the soil tests that the EPA run on their property which = no more picknpull

                          This is why I pour all my oil into storm drains, keep it out of the soil

                            They're supposed to drain all that shit, it's their own fault.

                              Yeah that's true. I'd be surprised if it was intact l lol my bud worked for them for a little while like 2 years ago and his job on the incoming cars was to use a air jackhammer to break the pans instead of taking the drain plugs of because it's faster to break than drain... They cut the lower rad hoses to drain etc. they must have missed the jeep I was taking the rad off last time cause that had every bit of the coolant it should have lol it all went on the ground.

                                even if you drain the oil, there are still drips etc. that you cant get out - we all know that. this is what my local PNP told me and it makes sense... a $50 oil pan aint shit compared to tens of thousands of dollars in fines. EPA is likely already on wreckers butts cause old cars suck and buying a brand new car every 5 years is a much better idea for the well being of our planet (and corporate America)
