Rims = Nakayama Tires = Nankang Size = 225/40/ R18 I needed new tires and new Dunlop that I have on now would probably have cost between 5 and 6 hundred dollars. I figure that if I found rims that I like, maybe used with good tires for about the same price, so I have been looking for the last couple of months at wheels in different places. E-bay etc. Last week I found a good deal on E-bay for these, mounted and balance never been on a car all the chrome lug nuts chrome value stems. They belong to a former PFF menber CTDIV. He brought these for his project and then you know what happen. Never finished
After. They are just sitting beside not on the car

Those are some nice looking rims. I think they will definitely compliment the car much more than the honey comb ones did. They look like they will fall right in to the color of the car as well. Good choice! Throw up some installed shots when you can.

Yeup, that front bumper can be fixed. Mine was smashed in from spinning out and hitting a concrete divider during a snow storm. I took off my bumper cover, kicked out the worst of it and then used a torch to heat up the plastic and push it the rest of the way out with the handle of a big screwdriver.
Worked great! You can hardly tell it was damaged in the first place.

I have a new / old nose that I brought from one of the member on here that will be replacing it. I'm in the process of putting on new coilover, brakes and a few other items and then back to the paint shop, ( Wind Dancer ) Get into speeds over the hundred MPH range and you would know the name fits.
To fix the "dancing" problem, some hood vents may help
I suppose you could always kick out the dent in the old bumper and turn it into a chin spoiler. My bumper was crushed in almost as much as yours is and I managed to push it out and then heat the plastic to reform it to look like this:
