So it seemed liked my Sport wheels wouldn't seat fully against the brake rotor. Bore sizing is supposed to be the same. Had a clunking, wheels were tight so I assume it was my rotors moving around.

Anyway put 3mm spacers on the rear and it seems to have fixed the issue.

I don't think it's necessary to start a new thread to ask this, but does this look like a normal amount to you guys or am I going to have to change a gasket soon? To me it seems excessive for how low of km's it had but maybe it sat too long and dried out or something.

I'd say change the gasket man. That's sweating all the way around.

Mike gave me a heads up, Speed Factor is having a pre stocking order on Nankang tires. They gave me a really good price on their drag radials I was contemplating so screw it I'm gonna try em this summer.

Any good places online in Canada to order from or just go to the dealer?

Not sure if I feel confident to do something like that. Maybe paint the valve cover while its off though. Still need to install my catless dp and gms1 sensors from 2015 black friday, and get a tune from kmo haha.

Damn. I'd really like some street input on them. I can only find track reviews.
