Just got these a couple days back:
Toyo Celsius tires are designed for regions like New England, and I've had a very positive experience so far.
The have three main features I like:
1. Asymmetrical Tread - They wont get stuck in snow as easily

I absolutely love my optima! It’s a 2018 SXL and I love the quickness of the car and the sleek design. I was planning on making it a little quicker and maybe even a bit louder. I plan to eventually put in an intake and a new exhaust system. Anyone have any recommendations on exhaust system?
Hey guys new to the forum I was just curious if anyone had any advice or pictures of their blue optima build to help me decide which direction to go first with cosmetics or “performance”/fun sounds stuff. I’ve built three jeep wranglers but I know nothing about the world of Optimas. Thanks
Just saw a video from a channel I follow: ChrisFix, on NRS Brake Pads:
My question to you all is: Has anyone installed these before? I'm looking to install some better brakes on my car that are a bit less noisy, so this seems like a pretty good option. What are you all's thoughts on these?
Just curious about that, folks. Zero issues with this car with regular fuel (always use Shell or Chevron), thankfully, but just curious if there's any noticeable difference with premium, like it's the case with most turbos. I was surprised not to see any reference to premium fuel in the owner's...

We had a cool front here in Texas that brought the temps down from the middle 90's to as low as the low 50's in the morning, and my 2.0 turbo really enjoyed it.
We all know the denser air carries more of a fuel/air charge, but it's fun to actually FEEL it when you press the accelerator pedal! :D
