Paid $300 bucks for everything.... Did I get a good deal?

Oh jeez ^^^ Going to need a drop with these rims or they don't look that great. I had to do a test fit, the acorn lugs were a bit too large so I am going to have to get some tuner lugs. I am thinking the black closed end..... Thoughts?

if you still had the sportlines you could put them back on and they would look fine. and put some more sporty looking tires on there (or fill them up lol). but i wouldn't go any larger then a 50 series...unless you want your car to look like a cartoon character

.

technically your running the same...i guess, size as you would an eap wheel and 45 series tire combo. any bigger or smaller and you'll mess up your speedometer

this one is a friend's in KC. he cut out where the focus lettering is and put clear plexi behind it and then we installed some led running lights behind it.

and yes, with the krylon fusion all you have to do is just clean them with some soapy water (get and crap off it) and then paint. will come out a kind of satin finish and you can clear coat it it you want more gloss.[/QUOTE]

How hard was the led mod?

3dcarbon is where we got them from but im not sure if they have any left as they quit producing more last year. It is completely empty when you purchase it. just the pockets which is why I got it anyways, I didnt care for the first aid kit lol. But it doesn't hold alot without falling off UNLESS(= you take large head screws and affix it in between all of the pockets so that it is held up better. I used black screws and they go completely un-noticed but it holds alottt now with no problems. Ill post a pic in a bit!

lol I don't even have anything in mine. When I go to autocross as a support vehicle I keep my trunk open so everyone in our group can get to the cooler/snacks when they want and people are constantly asking me about it. Its a really nice touch that people seem to notice.

A few thing with the 4 lug mustang rims - aren't there some modifications to the wheel that needs to be done to make it work on a focus? I thought i read somewhere that the hub center was smaller or something.

Also, those look like they have a RWD offset ... they're going to stick out a bit

I just saw that you had a set of mustang rims on your focus and wanted to know if they rubbed on you at all?

The reason I ask is because I just bought an old set for winter wheels. But if they are going to rub I think I will try to find something else.


Thanks!

Response:
I used to rub on my old frpp suspension because it was so bouncy but never really had any problems when i switched to dgr coils. If your on stock suspension im sure youll be fine
