My name is Ludwig and i'm from Dominican Republic! i recently ordered a Kia K5 (Optima) 2012 that runs on LPG (LPG Trim lol?), as it's a very popular car right now in my country as normal gasoline has become really expensive here.

    I am looking to run all four wheels the same size (and not staggered) on my Optima. I am looking for two of the newer style R Spec Genesis coupe front wheels. If someone else had a staggered set and wanted to trade their undamaged fronts for my undamaged rears, I would likely do that as well...

    How about a comparison? I have Storm springs on mine for about a month. I would love to start a thread comparing the different springs that are available.

    Hi All, I have not long purchased a MY11 TF Optima Platinum in Santorini Blue.
