Nice [thumb], but I refuse to do all of that work to factory wheels which I don't even like aesthetically.

In fact, I am selling mine as soon as the (interest free from Ford) loan is paid off, and getting some strong Speedline Turini 16x7s from England, with a good 205/50-16 UHP all season (probably the General G-Max AS-05s, or the like) to replace them for mostly year-round 'intermediate' use.

That is unless I just totally replace the hubs with some 5x120 M-Sport deals, sell ALL of my wheels, and then have a WORLD of choice in that PCD (even as compared to the ubiquitous/popular 4x100 conversion so many do). [wink]

Yeah I wanted ST black wheels but haven't found a good deal on a set or old Focus SVT rims.

I towed my 5x6 utility trailer for the first time w/the FiST. ~2 hours up the road and back with a small load of Troy-Bilt Flex attachments. Even with Stage 1, speed limit/lead foot acceleration and PA foothills, 27 MPG. (still looking for the Flex Log Splitter and Chipper/Shredder) I could go for another mower attachment too.

Installed my Whoosh FMIC, cougarx bulbs, and a used AWR 70a RMM. Changed oil at 1000 miles as well. Went stock fluid for this one. It was a PITA to remove the oil filter. Had to run out and buy a fourth style wrench and bent it a little just getting the dang thing loose.
For those looking for tools, Home Depot has a pretty good deal on a few of the Husky Torque wrenches. $50 a piece for the two I bought to be able to do the RMM and upcoming torsion bar and exhaust. Seemed to work as advertised 6AF49DEE-C335-4612-9AB1-E3BDF4075760.jpeg 0A581095-E91F-42A9-A612-EB5933F7846C.jpeg CDFA5FE5-B7E1-47DC-AA68-F741743542D9.jpeg

Awesome! I actually like the stock rims, they are different to any other rim and suit the car really well IMO.

Can you post a picture of the front of your car with the bumper cover on? I'm curious to see what the black intercooler looks like on a Magnetic car.

They most certainly are not the most horrific wheels I've ever seen from the factory, but I would have MUCH preferred the 'parts bin' multi-spoke 'Focus Rally' wheels in the same size right from the factory instead.

Sadly, and ironically, now one cannot even buy those new anymore

Check the direction of your check valve. Mine was on backwards and that could have really bad!

Flashed back to stock tune from E30. Honestly isn't as noticeable as I thought.
