Re: OEM Vibe GT 18" wheels vs. 18" Enkei Falcons

Greetings, I really like the spacing of trb's mustang wheels on the Gen 2 Vibe. I'm looking at getting a new set of rims for my 09 GT. How do I figure out what offset I would need if I wanted to run a different width wheel but have them stick out the exact same amount as the mustang rims?

Re: Anyone Ever Have Snow Caked in Wheels Cause High Speed Vibration?

I sometimes have an issue with snow/ice accumulation in the wheels off my 09 GT, I have a window ice scraper that's on a long stick that I use to knock the ice out.

Re: 09-10 GT header?

How significant of an effect do you think the Megan Racing headers would have. Especially if I intend to have the ECU tunned?

I didn't find any history; but changed the tires, brakes, oil, plugs, battery, and had the trans pumped and refilled. A squalling serpentine led to an afternoon of "fun in the sun" replacement. I swapped out the broken-knobbed stereo with a bluetooth one. Right after that, we took the car from Albu...

Re: TireToast's 2009 Vibe GT | The TireToaster Mk II
