^^^ There called rims and tires. You put them on your car so it doesn't drag on the ground. [joke]

Those are going to look great on your car. Can't wait to see your pictures.

What are those?
Custom made Forgeline Racing rims. They were made for that cougar but look amazing on my focus. I have pics but I don't know how to upload via phone internet so I get out at 230. Will post em then. Unless I figure it out at lunch.

It depends on the overall weight of the wheel tire combo compared to what you already had on there. Greater rotational mass = slower times. Those little Hondas weren't made for 17s and they're torqueless wonders to begin with.

Technically its called a wheel, not a rim. A rim is the otter edge.
I've never heard that before. I've always used rim for the metal, alloy or whatever they can be made of, tire for the rubber part, and wheel in reference to the combination.

By the way, those wheels look great on your car. Nice buy.

Thanks guys! They definately don't look ricer. They look more american muscle and I love it. My car is the dirtiest itsbeen in forever! Definately need to start cleaning it again.

Still need to figure out how to roll the fenders front and back. The honda kids were tellng me about some wooden baseball bat trick. Not doing it. Apparently they stuff it between the tire and the fender
Four people sit on the hood and they drive it forward and back. Apparently it works for them. Lol idk. Sounds terrible.
