    American Tire charge $150. Then I went to another shop in Long Beach which charge $100 to move TPMS from 15" to 17" and balance. Give me new stems

    ...and no, I didn't forget to re-attach the ground wires... ;)




    ...6am be damned... o_O

    ...at least that is the thought process for now... :p

    ...tomorrow morning it may be different thought process entirely... :unsure:

    Blocked the lower portion of my grill. Haven't done any driving yet so not sure what the MPG gains will look like. I typically don't turn on my heat when driving, which has gained me around 3 MPG. Where's the warm weather so I can get my upper 50 MPG back!

    Need to give it a bath to!

    Special thanks to @B2FiNiTY for installing my steering wheel, great to meet you. When you're in Fremont, let's hook up.
    Steering wheel feels and looks 100% better, so happy with this upgrade.

    How was the install? Difficult? Do you have to get a steering wheel Alignment?

    Install looked easy when B2FiNiTy installed it, steering wheel is cocked a little to the left but not so bad. Probably will have to do alignment again.

    Would it be an alignment or adjusting the tie rod ends?

    Thank you @xliderider, saves me from doing another alignment, I've Gone through 2 already. One for lowering & two for installing camber bolts & camber shims.

    CT200H Rims.JPG Got my CT200H rims installed. Very happy. Ran 25mm spacer in the rear and none in the front. It's nice and flush. Prius Plugin 2014 rims + tires + lugs on sale in Private Sales. No center cap. I moved it over to the CT200H

    No need to cut the ground wire bracket.

    Once I removed the stock mini cover, it went right on without a problem. Otherwise I would have had to cut the edge of the stock cover in front of the ground tab. There's a small edge on the right side that gets in the way. It's a single strip of double sided tape that holds it on.

    I see, I tried putting mine on with the stock mini cover on & didn't want to go on. Thank you for the advice, I'll do that tonight. Cheers!

    ...and don't worry about any of the warnings on the cover about electrocution... :whistle:


    650+ volts is harmless in small doses... :LOL:

    @TopRamen it was a pleasure, enjoy! :cool: I ended up going down to fremont in the afternoon after all and spent 4 hours detailing my buddy's car. Going to get some good night sleep tonight.
