Hello: Im new

Hello, my name is Chris! I just joined the site. Everything here is new to me so I look forward to reading all of your old posts.

I own a 2004 SVT Focus (yellow) with the European package. The only mods I have done are

1. front widshield sticker
2. new Toyo tires (a little taller and wider than stock.

The new tires do rub on occasion. They do however have a nicer (softer) ride. I had to buy two new wheels. With the stock rubber band tires in MI, I had two bent rims. I drive it year round in Michigan.

I was in an accident in Dec 2004. The rear passenger quarter was t-boned by a 17 year old female talking on a cell phone. It was a bright sunny day. She was coming out of a side street whil I was traveling on a main road. She said she did not see me (arghhhhh; yellow and sunny). The dealer did a nice job of restoring (new quarter, new wheel, new tire etc....).

So, what size tires do you have on there now?
Stock is 215/45/17, so I'm guessing you bumped up to 225/45/17?
