Looks good. I love the colors of the new wheels, but not crazy about those particular wheels.

Well first and foremost, It is the wifes car, lol, So she picked them out and she really likes them. She said she wants go go with the "Murdered Out" Scene. We wouldnt have even done the wheels if we didnt really have to but we did cause she ent one of her fatory wheels and it was leaking air from the bend in the wheel. The only place we could get that same wheel is from the dealer for $388 per wheel. It is a limited wheel that is hard to get ahold of. So she said lets see how much some aftermarket wheels are of the same size as the factory wheels so we can use the factory tires. So she found these that she liked and got them for $390 for a set of 4. So we couldnt really pass it up. I think it looks good. Pictures really doesnt do justice on this vehicle. It looks much better in person. I am gonna try and find either a solid gloss black or a polished center cap for the wheels cause thats really the only thing I dont like about the wheels, lol.
Anyways, Thats the story behind getting the wheels.

Eww. Dry off some of that tire shine, I can see it dripping through pictures.

And yeah agreed, the wheels are just ok. Like the escape itself though.

Yeah, We agree with needing more wheel. We wanted to get some 18's that we found but we couldnt afford them at the moment. Maybe a little bit down the road when we get a little more money coming in, we will go with bigger nicer wheels.
But for now, They will do just fine.

yeah they still look pretty good
it looks like you kept the same tires when you got the new wheels?

maybe once these tires go, they'll give oyu the incentive to get some bigger wheels

Yeah they would. I would love to do that to it. And maybe find some headlights that have a Black housing to give it the dark look.

Yeah, We couldnt afford new tires right now and thats the reason why we stayed the same size wheel. I hate the tires on it cause they are soo noisy. Continentals in general are noisy as hell.
