Ordered the Socalgarageworks carbon/leather wheel. Will post photos in 8 weeks or whatever lol. I checked with jaliscos and while their prices were much lower (even with current socal sale) he just left me with sorry no fiesta wheels in stock.

I may try the above wing but damn its a crap shoot and probably half what it would cost to invest in hybrid turbo.

The 910S goes on my daily Focus Ti. Nice to be able to use the same filter though. Going to use the 400S on the FiST

Which oil are you going to use with one of them?
I used Amsoil Signature 5w-20 about 200ish miles prior to garaging it. Will probably use the same going forward. Wondering if I should change it fresh out of winter storage with it having so few miles. I don't mind doing it just not sure if it's necessary.

I would NOT change it out with that few miles on it, since there is only so much fuel/acid/moisture it could have built up in that short use time frame.

On top of which; the Amsoil Sig Series is a VERY stout oil as far as starting TBN goes, so it REALLY resists that said acid, etc. about as much as is possible. [wink]

Are you sure that those are even made in a NON-center lock version, and if they are, in our PCD/offsets??
(The link will not load for me at all. )
I'm not sure on much other than the lug pattern and offset working. I actually don't know about NON-center lock or therefore center lock. I am pretty sure I'll be grabbing a set of Advanti Storms though. Now that Dpro made me aware of them that is. When I order I'll have to ask about rings. Other than the fact I know hubcentric rings are required for most wheels, I haven't learned how to find identify the size required for vehicle/wheel on my own.

Center lock wheels use a large single nut to attach the wheel to a single threaded cylinder on the hub instead of studs and lug nuts (or threaded bolts in the case of some older VDubs).

It is mostly used for full-on road race cars, and a very few European manufacturers send them from the factory that way on their 'street legal race car' models (i.e.; some of the upper Porsche GT-xx models, some prancing horsey models, etc.).

For those wheels pictured above those could be just covers over the center lug nut portion of the wheel, which OZed and many others do for 'aesthetic' reasons, or they could be actual center lock wheels which OZed DOES make.

What made me think it was the latter is that the center portion of that wheel looks too small to house even a smaller PCD/bolt pattern, but not a single center lock nut. [wink]
