Wheels R on:




Friday night, I was finally able to swap wheels on the Focus. Off went the stock 16s, and on went the new Volvo 17s. Unfortunately by Saturday morning we were covered under quite a bit of snow, so the Focus stayed hidden in the garage, finally coming out today when it was sunny and clear again.

Ta-da!



As a recap:
-OEM 17" Volvo Pegasus wheels
-235/45 Continental Extremecontact DWS tires
-Muteki Burned Blue Neon lug nuts

I went a little camera-crazy and took quite a few pictures, but below are some of the better ones.



















Overall I am VERY happy with how the wheels look on the Fofo. Different yet subtle, wider and larger than stock, a good offset, and a design that makes cleaning easy (hey, I'm a detailer after all).

Speaking of which, before the little photoshoot today I was also able to go on a mini shopping spree for detailing supplies; now that it's summer (will I jinx it by saying that?) I can keep the cars cleaner. Clean cars = happy me.
