As for mods it has 225 series tires which are a fair bit wider than the...

    Just got my new wheels mounted - thought I'd post some picts. I decided to paint the rotor hubs and calipers a nice glossy black, too. I think it turned out pretty nice. Wheels are SE KV5's with 225/45R17 Kumho SPT's. A nice improvement over the 15" steel wheels.
