New additions to the cubedriver.com Project Cube

Postby AZhitman » Thu Nov 25, 2010 11:59 pm

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...

Image

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.

Image

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.

Image

We've got a couple more plans in store for Project Cube, so stay tuned!

I think the red wheels work very well with the Cube - good call.

Thanks homey!

Thankfully, there was a girl with an Accord in our neighborhood that bought the 17's off me - WIN!

What is the off-set of those wheels and what tire size are you running?
