Good call on changing out the factory wheels and tires, although it may be a little early given it's also winter in NJ?

If you're adding power, consider braking and suspension mods as well! We have a whole list of mods for the Hatch :)

yea but I’m really unhappy with the stock contis this many miles deep so figured I’d kill two birds with one stone. Been eyeing up your section of brake upgrades and stability stuff. Probably will be one of the next mods I do

Michelin makes a good All Season tire that you can consider if you're going to have one set of great tires: https://www.michelin.ca/en/tires/all-season-tires/pilot/pilot-sport-all-season-4.html

I'm a believer of having two different sets; one dedicated winter, one dedicated summer but I can understand if space and/or budget are a concern.

Braking, suspension, and other upgrades improving driver feel go a long way!

i took a shot with the bf Goodrich Comp 2 plus A/S. They’re a beefy tire but have heard good things about grip, but mild tread life. For the price I think they’re worth a shot. Will update on that once they’re on and I get a feel for them

I want to see more photos. They look dope so far in the dark!
Thanks! I do photography on the side, so more photos will be coming for sure. The picture I just posted was with a long exposure and purple led panels, then photoshopped into a painting of tokyo lol. I need to get some daylight pics soon

Here's a pic of the wheels right after I got my car back from the shop

Bro. That fitment is prefect. I'm shopping for wheels right now as well. That looks amazing. That's a perfect height as well.

Thanks! I was considering going for 17x9s with a meatier tire for more traction, but decided the hatch needs 18s for its big body aesthetically speaking. I probably could've gotten a +38 offset instead of the 35 for a slightly less meaty look, but these are very flush with the fenders and I have no rub so overall I'm super stoked about them

Had her out for a ride and it started down pouring so I grabbed my camera and went out to get my free carwash.

few more cosmetic mods, and I put on a white line rsb from unity. Turns at double the suggested speed are cake now with some good tires, and that sway bar. Also have a strut bar sitting waiting to be installed. I’ll probably get to that either today or tomorrow.

have a whole buncha parts in the mail coming, and I’m considering wrapping it soon since all my cosmetic mods I want to do are either on the car already, or in the mail. We’ll see though

I put on a hfp style lip in black. Very subtle change on a sport, but it was cheap so whatever and I think less can be more with these cars. Also pics of the rear sway bar.

My vents ended up turning out sloppy lol they didn’t go as planned, but I kinda like it as long as you’re not closely inspecting it

Nice work! Glad to see you're loving the rear sway bar, it sits at our #1 spot for best suspension modification on the 10th Gen! Great ride height and wheels too :)

Get some seat time in, and enjoy the season! We'll likely switch over to summers in about a month or so.

What did you do for removing/replacing the rear upper spoiler?
