Bex and I decided the 17" wheels just weren't working visually on the Cube... I've been holding onto a set of 16" GAB Sport wheels from Japan that *might* work, but they needed tires. So, I ordered up a set and threw them on...
I think we're going to stick with this setup - It's about an inch lower overall, and the wheels (and tires) are lighter. With the better offset, we're also not running spacers (which lightens the load as well), and handling is actually a lot more crisp.
Also, we added the ATI Cube grille
and the ForjWorks Cube eyelids
a couple weeks ago - They're a really sharp addition, and I think they'll look even better on a non-black car.
We've got a couple more plans in store for Project Cube, so stay tuned!
