God those are sexy. Make sure you post some pics after install.

And please, out of respect for that car, remove the pinstripe.

No way to 100 grit! 1500 wet should do the trick. You could try a heavy cut compound first but more then likely you’ll need the sand paper

100?!


I was thinking more like rubbing alcohol and a plastic cutter, then cleaning it up, buffing, 2,000 grit if needed.

Well, I was sitting in the Costco parking lot tonight, looking at the pin striping, and I realized it was TAPE.....

So, pick at the end with a fingernail, get it up, and start to pull/peel......One section at a time, one stripe at a time.....

NO MORE PIN STRIPES!!!!

Just gotta go over it with some "GOO GONE", wipe it down, and hopefully it'll be good to go....

No sand paper needed!

Lot more width and offset options in 20". I had good luck with mine till recently. If you're in the pothole-less south, you'll probably be trouble free.

Well, based on your experience, and common sense, I am NOT selling my stock tires and wheels.....

At least for now.....

What tires are you changing out from - Sport Pilots? Be good to hear your comparison on the outgoing tires...
