Henry Ford would be proud! Black seems to be the number one color. What size are the tires and did you notice any change in ride quality? :nsmile:

Edit - Is your car lowered I like?

The tires are 225 35 20s but as soon as those ware out I'll get 245 or 255 the ride is a little rougher but not bad corners better. I still ride on stock height need a set of h&r springs. I just ordered a brushed aluminum dash kit for it should be here in 7 days. And i got a chrom sill window peice the one peice thats on the bottom of the windows that will be here wednesday. You guy's know of any exhaust systems or intakes for the v6?

not too bad, but I tihnk some tough looking 5 spoke 18's would look better, and a 1" drop would make all the difference...

i say lower the car and that'll help the look ALOT

Is the ride substantially different? I want to get dubs, but I don't want them to be uncomfotable.

just get 18s then if your so worried about it. 18s just look like to me is why didnt you get 20s. I saw a set of 18s on one at the dealership they just look to small. if you get 20s make sure you get 245 or 255 35 20s instead of mine 225 little to skinny. 20s will feel different from the 16 or 17s you have on now thats cause there different their 20. if you think your car handles good now my fusion handles like its on rails now. i love it. i need to lower mine now 1.4in front and back. but im willing to compromise alittle bit of ride quality for performance. oh and i can still spin the 20s on a hard accel.

A car isn't going to handle like rail's after just adding wheels. You've just added .3-.4 tenths to your 1/4th mile time with the addition of those big heavy rims.

What the hell does "handles like its on rails" mean?  Im so confused.  If that's a good thing, I'll probably do it, and also I plan on dropping mine an inch or so.

I think "handles like its on rails" is a line Julia Roberts used in Pretty Woman, no?

Come on, people! Handles on rails. Think of a train. It handles ON rails, and goes exactly where the rails take it. There is no error. It handles 100% perfect [until it falls off the tracks]...

Handles on rails, means it's like a slot car, or it handles "very good".

Don't you think your going to have major rubbing issues with 20 inch wheels and drop springs?
