It’s all good lol. I have the SHO, and the wife has her van. But thanks for looking out!
Even before I bought my SHO, I knew who you were.....even being in AZ. LOL.
That's exactly what I did for my daughter. She was considering a Mazda CX-9, but I found this 2013 White Ecoboost Flex for less money with ALL the bells and whistles! She loves it...still!
I rented one of those on the Big Island. Pretty good pick up for a mini van but no SHO HAHA!
Absolutely not a sho haha
Just wanted to take a pic of the car today at work.
20x8.5" +35 Niche Targa M129 with 255/45/20 Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 tires. New wheels are about 29lbs and old wheels are 33lbs (almost 34...).
Thanks! I think I need to lower the car a touch to pull it together, but I'm still on the fence as I don't like the options we have. Until then, I'll work on getting it to shine half as good as you have yours shining!
Your black paint looks pretty flawless to me. Bumpers too no chips or bugs. I’m not gonna lower mine I think it’s fine. Once agin PERFECT !
I agree plus it is nice to see the gray and black contrast. I dig it.
The pictures are making my car look A LOT better than it actually is! It was filthy from rain all last week and I took it through the car wash just to knock some dirt off. The front bumper... is a complete mess! I'm going to compound/polish and put a coating on that's been sitting on my shelf all summer and hopefully that'll get it looking decent. Again, thank you for the kind compliments!
Thank you sir I look forward to seeing which wheels you end up with!
Is it me, or did the price go up? I thought those were under $300 a wheel a few weeks ago? Either way, is still a solid price for the weight savings!
It would be interesting to know what the lower weight will give you in terms of improved acceleration and handling. I am thinking I could sell my stock 20" rims(Not the flowers) for close to what these cost. It is kind of a turn off that they are made in China. I am wondering how strong they are.
The wheels I installed dropped about 4.5lbs off each wheel and I actually notice it. Car seems to accelerate a little easier, turns easier, smoother, etc. The wheels you posted would shed nearly 10lbs per wheel (over my wheels) and that without a doubt would be very noticeable IMO.
Reduction of rotational mass is essential. If something is easier to spin, then it will get up to speed quicker and maintain the speed easier.
Anybody have the stock non flower wheels ? I wanna get opinions, if I should get rid of them or get them blacked out plasti dip or powder coat
