What is the tire size you have on. And how is the rear spat clearance.
Does the front tire touch somewhere when you turn the wheels left and right to the extremes. Or if you hit a bump.
I always beleived that the setup (tires with 7 inches wide rims) could not fit the Insight.
Yves I have 205/40 16's all round and the rear spat clearance is about 1/2 inch. There is also about 1/2 inch clearance for the trailing arms as well.
The front tires don't rub anywhere. And this is the largest wheel you can fit on the Insight while still matching the stock tire diameter.
I bet you could fit 17" rims on the insight but there won't be any tires that will match the stock diameter.
Interesting. What is the weight of those wheels, and the mandatory: "Did it affect your mileage?"
And even though the clear spiky things might look good, they probably don't do a lot for the aerodynamics....
The rims are 16lbs each which is 5lbs heavier than the stock rim. I'd love to have Volk super lights but my pocket book isn't that full. And yes, these wheels do afffect the MPG rating. I've calculated around 25% decrease in fuel mileage. With lighter wheels it would go up again. Just got to save my pennies for those super light rims.
As to the pointy clear decorations, It took nearly eight hours of gluing to get those suckers on there. hee hee :lol: Just kidding. You can't really tell in the photos but there is a 1/4 inch layer of ice on the car. Enough ice to make the door handles just become flush with the car. :shock:
