2013 LT Mods & Upgrades

This was my impala bone stock fresh a couple months ago. Everything was stock besides the aftermarket window visors I installed the day I bought the vehicle.

A couple weeks ago, I bought 2012 Camaro rims I thought would really good on the vehicle.

The wheel specs are 5x120 19 x 9.5 (pretty wide) but I'm really going for that wide American Muscle look, so wide is good. Not to mention I dropped the car 3 inches from stock height
(I'm going lower soon) to give it a solid beefy stance look.

Looking for some feedback on what you guys think, of its progress. I know some won't like it but to each their own, all is welcomed.

(Might switch to C6 Corvette rims in the near future)

I think it looks pretty good.
The wheels poke out a little too much, but I guess you don't have much of a choice with how wide they are.
What size tire are you running? First 8th gen I've seen as well with 9.5 in width.

Yeah, I kind of like how wide it is, my plan is to go a little lower and get that real American Muscle stance.

Right now I'm sunning 245/40/ZR19
I'm thinking of getting 225/35/ZR19 and get them super stretched so I can get the ride height I want without rubbing. And thanks guys I appreciate the feedback

I was also considering putting one these on the UGLY LT, I think it's going to make it look really sleek.

I believe it's for a Dodge Charger, but I'll so some research and measurements and find out if there is a way that I can retro fit it.

WHO WANTS TO SEE THIS HAPPEN?

How loud is "ridiculously loud"?
Are we talking Honda Civic, or 1970s Chevelle?
Asking these because I myself want a loud tone, but more of that muscle car sound..

@DaminGMC I wish we can put sound and/or video clips on here, it's definite not rice rocket sounding. But we all know that if it isn't a V8 it's hard to get it to sound like one or maybe even never sound like one. To be honest, it just sounds like a beasty V6. Some people might take it for a joke, but the way it growls and claps takes people by surprise. I'll post pics of my set up soon. So, all in all it sounds like it's own being, not a ricer but not an old school.
