Why? Do you have an aftermarket sub system in your car?

Why not take it out before heading over there? You can fit the tires and wheels in your car ... I did.

Rules ... For painting your wheels for like AutoX ... none if that's what you mean.

Or

Rules for painting wheels in general. If you get new rims, it's best to paint them before you mount them. But it's not to difficult to get them painted after mounting either. Just need to mask them.

Well powder coating is the best. ... other than that ... you may have to ask the wheel guys about other kinds of paint for wheels in the wheels section of the forum.

what size wheels are you using, diameter and width?

225/50-16 works great on 16x7's.

Mine fit ... but rub some ... with 16s.

So, stiffer suspension is in order. I wouldn't do the 17s. To thick. But the 16s and 15s would be okay.
