Right now, I think they are. I would rather be on 16s than 17s

oh I see. I like less tire, lol. I would love to get rid of my 15" stockers I use for the winter in favor for 17" SVTs.

Larger tire=more money. It also seems that they wear out faster, idk maybe its the way I drive but, on my stockers(before the winter tires) those tires lasted for 4 years, my aftermarkets(before the suspension) lasts about a year.

Go larger and they get more expensive. It seems to be cheaper "stancing" your car than having to deal with changing 17's

So I got a Focus Sport rear stress bar in the other day. It was blue, I decided to take the paint off the lettering, leave the emblem blue and paint the bar black.





I ended up screwing up the paint so I am in the process of fixing my mistakes today.

I also drove to Denver today to meet up with JB (transformerzx3) to pick up a slightly damaged SVT header for cheap!




Took a few pics:
