May i ask why you went with the all season version of the continentals? You have snow tires, no need for anything but a 3 season tire.

Car looks great otherwise.
It's because our weather is insane. We have had snow at some point in each month of the year, so it's always a possibilty. In fact, this picture was taken on Saturday; ONE DAY before the pictures showing the new wheels:



There simply will be a day when snow will hit and I'll have no choice but to drive on the summer wheels, so all-seasons are better than nothing. My Grand Prix has the same pairing, winters (which are now used for storing the car) and all-seasons for summer.

Our weather hates us.

Funny you should mention that....photoshops courtesy of a friend on another forum:




If/when the Fofo gets lowered I may give it a try. For stock height though, especially since they were just painted (in one wheel's case, painted twice...), I'll keep them this colour.

Is a car ever truly done? But no, no tint for me.

Here are just a couple more pictures from my phone, for the heck of it. With the new wheels the Focus has been getting a fair bit of attention at work, people like them!

Center caps:



I spent a while figuring out what I wanted to do for my center caps. They were a little scratched up, so at the very least would have needed to be polished or clear coated. I decided to use it as a chance to change them up a little bit. I wanted something subtle; just like with the wheels, I wanted something that could be mistaken for OEM at first but upon closer inspection would be noticed as different.

Tuesday evening I headed over to a friend's house to design and cut out some vinyl overlays. With a lug nut in hand, we found a metallic blue in his stash that was a good match and cut the designs from that.



In case you didn't notice in the first picture, the new overlays look like this:




Yes, I'm keeping the Volvo design.

I started with the one cap I had removed to use as a template; it was wrapped in silver vinyl and then the new blue Volvo decal was placed on top.




With that done, now the other three have to be done to match. Those will wait until I get a chance to remove the other wheels.

Off topic, just a couple of pictures from last night, during and after a local weekly meet.

They're easily recognizable as Volvo wheels, and I don't mind mixing logos like this. Plus I'm a huge Volvo fan.

I would've made them say Ford in the Volvo font.

I get lots of comments/questions/mentions about having Volvo wheels on the Focus. It's fun.
