Yep I believe better rubber should always be your first mod if you are serious about drag racing or auto-x. If you want an exhaust or an intake,then I guess you just want to be able to tell people that you have an intake or an exhaust. Tires will always give you better improvements than those especially in auto-x.

my ride came with the 16" factory alloys, i don`t like them much, probably the first thing i`ll change...will 18`s work on my car?
09-14-2003, 06:30 PM
yeah but I wouldn't recommend 18's. They will reduce performance due to the smaller side wall. The ride will be real rough and it'll be very easy to bend the rims. 17's are the way to go.
09-14-2003, 06:34 PM
so how about 17`s? or should i stick with 16`s?
09-14-2003, 06:38 PM
I agree with Focus, stick with 17"s and you will be happy since it gives you a low-profile look without sacraficing ride comfort.

Enjoy that new car!

thanks everyone... i haven`t done much with the car yet, i added clear side marker lights, the foglight mod, and xenon headlight bulbs. i want to do some engine mods to make it quicker but not change exterior of the car to much, maybe just lower it a little.

Go with 17's, 16's are blah!
10-18-2003, 10:22 AM
yeah, i know... i don`t like the factory alloys...boring wheels.
