Looks good, Brian. Wish I'd keep my 20 spokes as clean as yours.

Man those are some sweet wheels. I don't remember seeing too many 20 spokes around. Looks like a good candidtate for the Mothers Powerball with all those angles! Might save your elbow from blowing out...

Actually would love to get some 18" GXP rims and use the 20 spokes for winter tires. GXP rims look easy to clean. Maybe GXP Rules could send his rims my way when he mods with his new 20'* or what ever he chooses!

Ahhhhhh yes! The GXP'* are sooooooo much easier to clean, plus I get twice - no no three times the satisfaction when I done.

MXV4 Energy Plus P235/55R17 "H"

Goodyear RSA'* were out of stock everywhere and in a new production run (probably slated for more oem use). I was torn between these and the Pirelli P Zero Nero it was a coin toss and the Mich'* won. So far ride is smooth, balancing is good and cornering seems as good as with the oem RSA'*. Hope the treadwear lasts! Rated at 400. Got 50k out of the goodyears. Hopefully I can show you them in July in Ohio!
