Isn't it cheaper to get wheels and tires? You typically save a lot doing this.



That being said, rape that bolt badly, get 255/30/24 tires or 275/30/24s. You will rape rims if you get 275/25/24. Even on the 30 series I've bent 8 rims now in 6 months. The potholes aren't even big here.

Luckily, it's on my explorer so I went ahead and bought some 295/35/24 tires and they're MUCH meatier. There's no meat really on 25 series tires.

chrg on dav,Where u got lambo door kit?how much?how good they work?
I got it from gauge magazine and I don't recommend it. Lambo doors suck.

However, mine are flushed in to the car to look factory (sunk in to the metal, and finished over to look perfect).

It was a 6000 dollar job but that's more or less because of all the BS that happened before it by a BS company called Exotic Autosports.. they raped the car bad, and couldn't sue them because they had no money.

Time will tell for them...

Anyway check out: http://www.chargerforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=70423&highlight=lambo+doors+suck

some people like LSD and Vertical doors.com doors..

Me.. I think they all suck and rape your value of the car.

If you plan to spend lots of time at shows, go at it.

If not don't even think about it


Also if your car is a Daily Driver, you will HATE your life.

I got the vertical door kit and it has held up well for the past 2 years. I rarely open them up. I would stay away from the cheap stuff too. lots of horror stories with those. Oh and if you have a buddy install them yourself. Really easy. don't let a shop overcharge you for an easy job and mess up your car. I had a bad experience with a shady shop...

Hope your car doesn't get totaled as mine did.

Don't skimp on price, with lambo doors MORE than anything else: YOu get what you pay for.

I was the same way when i ordered mine and had to wait for them to get painted. I went with 255/30 toyos and I am very happy with them. Next year I am switching out the rear with 275/30 toyos. Good luck and post pics.

dont let davins scare you away from lambo's because of his bad experience... he got a cheap kit and had to make it work... i have the vdi kit---and it fits perfectly... i installed it myself, did both sides and got both perfectly aligned in under 8hours and that was my first time doing it. and now i have sold and installed many sets locally and have installed them in an array of cars and trucks and every single vdi kit i have sold and installed went just as smooth as my chargers did.. because they are vehicle specific instead of universal.. each kit is made to order to the exact vehicle. i gotten so good at installing them that i can now knock out an install in about 5hours now. i actually have 2 VDI charger kits that i can sell cheap. PM ME

EDIT--and i still flip mine up atleast once a day and they are still just as perfect as they day i installed them.. never readjusted or anything. just gotte make sure to use red cap locktite on the bolt threads once you get them set to where you want them. once they are set straight, you unbolt one bolt at a time and apply some locktite to its thread and put it back in and then do another.. that way ensures it wont move once you get them set straight.... i think VDI makes the best kit, fastest install time, and great shocks too... like i said i still flip mines everyday and had them for my charger since last november i think. right around then, so almost a year now, no issues at all.. shocks still hold doors up all day

2000 isn't cheap, the only cheap part of my kit was the fact that it was universal. Had good reviews
