Hey guys, just got some new 18'' KMC Rockstar Black Rims put on my whip with some thin thin thin tires. I also tinted up the two chrome strips and ford logos on the front and back. They work well with the dark tint. What do yall think?

Looks good. I don't know if I would have blacked out the door handles and mirrors though.

My momma told me, if you have nothing good to say, to keep quiet.
[dunno]
But he asked.

I think what you've done makes the car look cheap. And now the headlights look like they don't belong on the car. The star center caps, well... Are those even the correct size tires for overall stock diameter? It looks like you have tons of wheel well gap. This is just my opinion.

Pro photo tip: Don't take photos of cars with the front wheels turned.

Why not 20s? those wheels come in that size, I dont like the star in them, would rather it be all black wheel.

umm buddy, it only looks good to stormtroop your car if you have a white car. buff off those mirrors and door handles [bath]before its too late. Rims arent too bad, if you drop her about 2/3 inches

Yeah they're stock. 18'' rims with 215/35z r18 84w tires. Biggest rims I coulda gotten to keep the speedometer and everything stock. If I dropped the car then it wouldnt be stock and would prolly rub. And I got the car with the mirrors and door handles black like that, its the S series. Buffing them would make them look glossy?

And nah the lights came stock like that too, havent touched em.

I like it. One of the reasons I went for an SE instead of a SEL is I don't like the chrome trim, I hadn't thought of blacking it out.

At any rate, I like what you have done, I just think what you did would have looked better with a white or red car, but I don't Think you can get Red on the S.

I am not personally a fan of the Ingot Silver color anyways, that is just my personal bias I suppose. But he'll who am I to judge my tastes are not normal, I bought a Frosted Glass.

Anyways, cool car.

Thanks bro, I appreciate that!! See, this kinda post is so much more thoughtful/intelligent then the generic "i hate it"


If you put money into wheels and tires why didn't you just buy a higher model with more options instead? That what I would have done.
Cause I'd rather have sick rims then the buggy ford sync thing. if i wanted to talk to my ride i'd buy a horse.

I prefer color matched stuff. But it looks decent.

Yup, I skipped the whole sync thing too. An Aux cable for my iPhone is all I need.

I would have gone for a S as well, but I really wanted Cruise Control.

Hell, the Focus I bought was the last expensive on the lot, and the only one without sync or MFT, so I am definitely with you on that.
