nice welcome. I'm also out in Central Florida.what a weird percentage to have on your car from the get go. Ive ran 15% all around my whole life but that's cuz I'm a florida boy and I am trying to stay out of the Sun. 27% front and 15% back is the legal limit in florida but I've never really been bothered about it.

Dale they are not chrome just brand new factory lugs / no rust yet ;) ...


Nerddad - Y the guy at the shop told me 39% was the legal limit in Florida so I took his word for it ....do I wish I had gone a "tad" darker Y probably .......


Y brick I really "HATE" small diameter tires that don't fill a wheel well - so I am ditching these asap - right away . I will sell the new original tires and rims to help offset the cost of the new ones....its always been a pet peeve of mine to see "tiny" tires on a vehicle . Honda Elements had pretty small tires too and when you drop a set of larger rubber on them it TOTALLY changes the character of the vehicle both driving wise and visually . I checked out your page - nice ride.

So today I had a little free time and some "stuff" laying around....Soooo I did a red pin stripe down the sides .


THen since my bugshield is on order I decided to use some carbon fiber vinyl I had laying around to use as a hood protector and tailgate protector ....it came out "o.k." and is better than chipped paint or scratches :) .
