Operation: Winter mode

Since a vast majority of us have to deal with the wonderfoul white stuff, lets see your setups for winter!

I just painted my stock wheels today in preparation for tires this week. Started out as just wanting to do one solid color then I found another color that looks absolutely gross together. So here we go..ugly wheels for my ugly car! lol

Started with stock 15's that needed some help



After sandblasting and primer



Then a little flat olive drab action occurred




And on to..drumroll please..periwinkle. Yup. Periwinkle





And there you have it. The ugliest color combo ever. Its a love it or hate it kinda thing and I love it. I'll be mounting on some hankook ipikes next week. Other than that there's not really much else for winter prep other than a little touch up on some undercoating and tracking down a misfire. Let see what y'all are doing!

I kind of like the green color from the pictures. Don't know what it looks like in person, though.

Here's my winter mode from last year. The only thing that will change this year will be an unpainted front lip replacing the blue one for the season. Plus there have been some other changes to the car regardless of the seasons.

That is an effin ugly color combo, I love it!!!

For me, I took off my Konig Hotswaps and Pro-Dtm bumper and put the OEM stuff back on with Falken snow tires. It's kinda funny because I have now sold everything that I have taken off. So after winter, I will be taking my car in a different direction.

Winter in Michigan last year was amazing! This pic was taken in January. Got my winter boots on and no snow to play in.

Which direction would that be?

And last year really made me mad. I sold my csvt because it was super low and I wasn't gonna drive my fsvt and picked up my sedan. If I would've known it wasn't gonna snow hardly at all last year I would've kept the contour
