Just laid on a coat of wax on Kona blue

I justlaid a coat of wax on my Kona Blue 2011 GT. I used Tuttle Wax Ice Synthetic Polish for the very first time and I am a believer. This stuff is amazing- goes on so easy and no white residue at all- you can (and should) use it on plastic and rubber surfaces as well as your paint- it is amazing- can't wait to see how long it lasts! Anyway here are 4 pics of my car- hope you like 'em.

Verrryyy nice. Im gonna take some cues from you for my stang. What wheels are those? Any suspension lowering? How do you like those pop out rear windows?

I really like the look of the rear window louver, ive also got a gt500 style spoiler so i was curious about the mix with the louvers, looks great though!

The rims are Steeda Spyders, they are 9-1/2x20 front and 11x20 rear with 275/35 front and 315/35 rear Nitto Invos. The car sits on Eibach ProKit springs and ProDamper springs, struts and shocks. Rear window louvers are from MRT.

What front end is on yours? I like the splitter. I too just started using the ice wax. Great stuff.

Oh no, zero rubbing even tho my car is lowered. You would never know this rim/tire combo didn't come this way from the factory.

Oh and also, the pop out rear windows are really trick- I like them but at $800 the kit is a bit pricey and the install is definitely not for the faint hearted. It is a well designed mod and they always draw attention at shows and even if it is just parked somewhere people ask me if they are factory. They are particularly nice if you are parked somewhere in the sun with the front windows up and the doors locked- keeps the black interior from getting too fricking hot...

315 on rear? I'm running Nitto NT555 285/30R20 on a 10.5. Told if I went wider I'd have to roll the fender. And you didn't? No spacer?

Yeah, I wondered what the back spacing was.

315' on 11 rims- no clearance problems at all, no rubbing- the fit is perfect- no need for any spacers. I'm not sure what the backspacing on the rims is, but you could easily get that off Steeda's website.
315's on 11's look absolutely ba from behind- that's a bunch of rubber on the road.

BTW- no reason to roll the fenders- they are already rolled from the factory...

Hmm, I called Vossen on mine and they said the 9 was a 38 offset and the 10.5 wears 45.

If you want to see what will fit on the current rim you have just measure the space you have between the current tire sidewall and the vehicle body at its closest point. Now take the width you want say 315 and subtract the current tire width then divide that by 2. The resulting number is how much wider on each side it will be. Compare that to the gap you just measured on the car. You don't need to compare your rim offset to what he has. Measure your own car to be sure.

Sounds simple enough. My only concern is on compression will the top of the wheel well have a concave to it I may hit? Haven't really stuck my head in there to look if that is of concern.

Re: Just laid on a coat of wax on Kona blue

Can you use that stuff on plastic trim, etc without leaving white residue?

Re: Just laid on a coat of wax on Kona blue

I tried the Ice and it seemed to streak ... I didn't like it on the paint. It looked awesome on the black plastic trim pieces ... hell it even looked good on the tires. But I went back to good ole' carnuba wax for the paint.

But if it works for you, great ... your pics look awesome.

I was having a hell of a time keeping my deck lid looking good ... Ice did the trick. I used it on all the plastic.
