Stone White with Enkeis pic heavy..
 
Picked up some new wheels and tires from Tire Rack. Got a deal due to my company..so I got the wheels tires and tpms all at the same time, mounted and balanced.

I like the look, looks more rugged with the GY SA tires and the black and silver wheels.
Enjoy:

Looks great! What size tire did you go with?

Thanks,
They are 265/60/18
I didn't want to mess with the speedo, etc. I like the size, the ride is soft but not that soft and so far the handleing is still the same as the 20s.

Looks great. How does road noise compare between stock and Silent Armor tires?

I'm trying to figure out how much to sell them for. I'm selling them as a whole package, tires, wheels, and tpms sensors still on the wheels. They have 712 miles on the original wheels and tires.
As soon as I figure out a fair price I will post it. Thanks for asking

So far after about 40 miles, I take the bus to work, the noise is only slightly louder, kind of a wuuuuuuu noise, noticable only if you are looking for it. It blends in with the background noise and with any level of normal conversation you don't notice it. My wife hasn't noticed it yet so it must be low, she notices everything.
Ask again in about 2 weeks after I take it for a good ride and I'll let you know.
The ride feels better so far, and they also exhibit better handling characteristics then the stock 20 inch fortera's.
Again I need to drive it a lot more to make a fair comparison.


Thanks
EricWP
