    A sexually transmitted disease (STD), also known as sexually transmitted infection (STI) or venereal disease (VD), is an illness that has a significant probability of transmission between humans or animals by means of sexual contact, including vaginal intercourse, oral sex, and anal sex. While in the past, these illnesses have mostly been referred to as STDs or VD, in recent years the term sexually transmitted infection (STI) has been preferred, as it has a broader range of meaning; a person may be infected, and may potentially infect others, without showing signs of disease. Some STIs can also be transmitted via use of an IV drug needle after its use by an infected person, as well as through childbirth or breastfeeding. Sexually transmitted infections have been well known for hundreds of years.

    I'm split. I love my truck but those cars are so sexy. I'm not into the new ones that much though.

    I'm sorry, but the bronze Konigs on Speed Way Blue looks ugly.

    I wouldnt want my truck to look like a damn Suburaru.

    Black Konigs would look hot though.

    true... i would do bad things for a white sti/stock goldies on coilovers.
    but the new sti hatchback is really growing on me. saw a black one zoom past me, he must have had a full turbo back bc it sounded sooo damn good

    My friend might be selling his STI. I've been trying to get him into a Tacoma for awhile, though that damn thing snaps necks its fun. Maybe he'll trade you straight over :p

    Looked up JLB Motorsports and found out I live 12 miles from them, so stopped by on the way home from work.

    Bronze looks cool in pictures, but the "anodized-look" finish looked cheesy in person. The guys there confirmed the color is really for the look, and nicks and chips do not cover well. The finish of the flat blacks rims looked great, and nicks cover easy with paint pen or krylon paint.

    Estimate for 4 rims, 4 tires (asked for example of Kumho KL71), black lug nuts, TPMS transferred, balance and install was about $1,200 to $1,300--no complaints there for added convenience factor.

    Thanks for the input everyone.
