Is the author of that R-speed turbo article local? Is that a local forum? I noticed Lebanon Valley was mentioned.

awesome.

I have a bunch more bookmarked I’ll add in here later. Want to change the title to something more generic and sticky it?

two simple but useful ones

tire size calculator (height, etc.)
http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc

wheel offset calculator (compare how much farther/closer a different size/offset wheel will be to the inside and outside of the car)
http://www.e90post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=12

not that we need another one on here, but this is a great visual aid for wheel/tire size and offset.
