That's because you're used to them... BTW, are you really running with blue turn signal bulbs? I'd love to go wider, but not if it made my Sky look like a slotcar.

Oh, no way. They are Sylvania Silverstars. They appear bluish when off but are amber when in use.

I think the wheels look awesome, regardless of if they poke out a smidge. And they look nothing like a "ghetto lowrider", geez. The Vette they came off had big hips and long plastic nose, so they sure as hell look better on a Sky.

Really?

Wheel gap: Check

Wheels and tires that poke out: Check

Thanks!
The fronts are out a bit and the rears are out quite a bit more...
and that supposed wheel well gap... is a whole 6mm more than stock.

The car has too much wheel gap stock. The best aesthetic mod for the Sky is lowering it.

Re: East Coast

Can't speed in a state small enough that Empire could carpet the next day! They don't want you to miss it!
