    Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Ok so we finally broke down and bought wheels for the Sx! We have searched and debated on what size rims we wanted and we finally decided to go with 20s. We started with the pizza wheels and went to a 20x8 with a 35 offset. Running a 245/30/20 tire. Next thing we want to do is lower it a little...
