I'm wondering why krousdb

I'm wondering why krousdb desided to go with the 14" HX rims insted of the 13" VX rims.
SVOboy, why are you going with yokohoma tires? when I looked at them they seemed pricy, and had a low tread wear life, is there something that I'm missing?
I like the look of your new rims, is the paint a dark grey? it's hard to see clearly.

The LRR lightweight tires he wanted weren't available for 13s.

Got them when I first got the car, *shrug* They were only 40 bucks a pop and free shipping. I think their tread wear life is pretty good, but I dunno. They also won on the tire rack in most categories, and definately for the satisfaction category.

Gunmetal. I'll try to get a picture in full sun, but it's still raining. Looks very good with the clear coat on, thanks!

Well the Potenza RE92's are available in 13", but they weigh 17 lbs! The 14's I got are OEM on the Insight and only weigh 12.7 Lbs. Anyway I got the tires mounted and balanced. My digital scale says 24.4 lbs each. They are now mounted on the car and it sits another inch lower. All 4 pumped up to 62 psi.... Im goin for a drive now...

You're a pimp. When I get gas tomorrow (restarting due to fixing my car finally) I will pump up a little past 50 (the highest my gauge goes).

pics please!

svo, your rims look fantastic. i have vx rim envy again.

stupid suzukiclone bolt pattern. i was really disappointed my vx rims wouldn't fit.

i knocked on a door yesterday where there was a rusty 323 sedan with 14 in alloys sitting in the bushes that would have fit my car. unfortunately, he said he was going to replace the blown motor and start driving it again.
