Hi guys!

My name is Chad and I'm new to the boards. I have been a frequent visitor to these boards in the past. My Insight (#2720) is a 2000 Silverstone Metallic. I have a couple of modifications done. I have 15 inch mb motoring 272 wheels. i know some of you guys won't dig that but I still get around 63-64 mpg. I'm 22, and I love cars. To me, my car is about efficiency. Its about getting me home to my parent's house in Illinois on 2.5 tanks of gas. Over a period of four years, I have never loved a car more. It's reliable, fun, and an eye catcher. Anyways, with my car, I've been modding mine to show the teen generation of street racers, that there is a little mean monster in a 1.0 liter three-cylinder form :p

I'll leave you guys with some pictures of mine...

Hello Chad,

As a moderator,
===========
I need to point out that the forum rules:
http://www.insightcentral.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=142
restrict the images size to 450x450 when using the like I modified above in your post
This is so that the forum can have a lower "tranfer rate" and prevent Max out (forum becomes unaccessible)
You can put the link only like:
http://home.comcast.net/~leftturney/nsight001.JPG
So that it is the Web browser that will load the image without passing through the Insight Forum.
Thanks for understanding.

Very nice wheels. What are the sizes (diameter, offset and width) and what tires are they. You seem to have the same rims in the back and the front has a very big concave shape. How does it fit with the rear spat.
Have you tried some lights under the car

Sorry about that, I didn't know, but will take note in the future. I am using Kumho Ecsta 712 tires, size 195 50 15. At first I thought these wouldn't fit on the car as well. I'm not 100% sure on the offset, but I think it is 38. There is about 1/2 inch clearance between the skirt and the spokes of the wheel! When I had the stock wheels on I used to be able to wipe the entire wheel off without taking the skirts off, that's definitely not possible anymore.

I just moved to Denver about 3 weeks ago, from Indy. I figured I'd see more Insights here, but I haven't seen a single one yet. Tons of Priuses though. Does anyone have an opinion on the new Hybrid Ford Escape? That's coming out late September right?

These wheels are MB Motoring 272s. They make these in full machined, or painted inside with machined lips. I have the painted inside ones because the silver matches the car, but the full machined look really sharp too. You can get these at discount tire, or http://www.discounttire.com. The cost is around $600, including tires.
