I would get some really short mudflaps and fit those on just because you would mess up your car and others if you take it out in the rains
I dont think i would take it out in the moonsoon season that much especially with the roads being bad during that time.

No offences but could had selected a better set of tires to compliment the Evo

From the company the Evo 6 came with Yokohama Advan Neovas

I am sure that will look amazing on the car.We are looking forward to the final pics.By the the car being a direct import wasn't it difficult to change the ownership and stuff.I don't have much knowledge of the same but will appreciate if you put down some information.

That's a wise decision. Esp turbo cars i feel exp tires for daily use is too much!
I currently use Eagle NCTs and offers me good driving exp.

What does this mean?
What is the connection between turbo and tyres and daily usage?

Hopefully the car will be getting painted tommorow. There had been a delay because the car needed a new alternator before we got it moving. Hopefully I pray to God I will get the car either thursday or friday.
