They are Hankook Ventus V12 Evos. 255/35/20 front, 285/30/20 rear. They were rated pretty good and came in second in a Car & Driver test I saw online. Plus they were much more affordable than other tires.

Yup, I heard mostly good things about them too for street use (I presume you don't plan on drag racing with 20" wheels anyways). The only complaint that I hear about them is that their lifespan leaves a bit to be desired, but for the price I think it comes out OK.

Yeah no drag racing with these wheels. I do like to race though so may be getting some drag wheels down the road. I think I need to lower it a bit now to get rid of the wheel gap, but I'm worried that if I lower it I won't be able to get drag wheels/tires on there.

Looking good! The black accents in the rim really make that grabber blue pop! Great choice!

I got it from Stage 3 Motorsports. It's made by DG Custom Auto and they also sell it on their site. Black or polished/chrome. Here's a pic of the front...

The hardest part is removing the stock front grille. The plastic tabs that hold it on are terrible!! Once you get that off, it's just a matter of drilling some holes and inserting the billet aluminum piece. You do have to drill two holes into the front bumper/fascia, but they aren't holes you would ever see if you decided to change the look down the road or go back to stock.

I must note that your stock honeycomb grille piece with the pony can not be reused later because the plastic tabs are so tight that the directions tell you to cut them to get it out. If you want to keep all of your stock pieces, it would prob be better to just buy one on EBay since they are so easy to find.

Great!
Think I'll place the order.
Thanks for your help I've been thinking about that grill but wanted to talk to someone
That had installed one.

Move? This grille puts them behind it and moves them both in closer to center. Is that what you are asking?

Oh ok, yeah this is a complete kit where it gives you the billet grille and the brackets to move and mount the fogs...basically off the frame of the car and not the grille. You may be able to check out the install instructions on their website to see what you have to do.
