    Yep. 20' SR Rigid just got mounted up. It's their new hyperspot with the driving pattern on the outsides. The '16 with the pano roof actually as a perfect channel to run wires. More on the install later...bed time...yes, I know it's 8:45PM :) It goes well with the setup I?m running. Which...

    Question (TL/DR): Will this custom hitch for the 2015 Optima models fit a 2012 SX? I'm not aware of all the differences (major or minor) over the years regarding the chassis, exhaust, etc. I...

    So I saw a genesis coupe on Instagram the other day with a roof rack and a light bar. I was wondering if anyone knew a simple roof rack that fits on the optima and what the opinions the light bar brings

    Got some pictures of my 2014 Hybrid EX Premium with my kayak on the roof today! I bought a Thule Aeroblade bar set, 480R foot pack and the Glide and Set kayak carrier. I put in the front tow hook for the bow tie down and the rear was hooked underneath the car. Rookie mistake, I failed to...

    I have a 2012 Optima Hybrid with the pano sunroof, i.e. two panes of glass as the roof. I have had ZERO problems with it. I'm thinking about adding a roof rack for my sea kayak. It's listed at 62lbs, but I think it's actually more. It wouldn't be all the time. Just once in a while for a quick...
  10. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    I have a Yakima Whispbar setup on my Golf R and would like to add one for the kia. Yakima's site is miss-leading as to if it will fit with the glass roof or not....

  17. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    In the past few years, I've purchased three sets of winter wheels and tires from tire rack. They all came with a crappy set of nickel plated lug nuts that started to rust after a couple months of winter driving. On the last set that I purchased for my Subaru, one of the lug nuts rusted to the...
