yeah they r too small for the rear... im going with 315's in january... or at least 295's.

interior parts are hard to find in black... might just change the carpet and floor mats to black for awhile.... then do the door panels, maybe... maybe not...

What kind of 315's you gonna run?  Most of them on the market look like crap to me.  I'm pretty sure there are no 295's.  My 285 set-up looks way different then yours - wierd.  No worry  :rockon: your car still looks cherry!
