Show me your wheels

Those look amazing on there. Are they tough to clean?? Mainly asking for getting behind those spokes to clean the lip
Thanks.

I love how five-spoke wheels look on the CX5. The CX5 has a sporty look already, but the five-spoke look gives it a very aggressive and clean--"Audi-ish" look. There is definitely some bulge, but it's not overkill. I kept the same overall diameter so as to not screw up any sensors and such--but I swear the car looks lower. I'll try to get some more pics up.

The thin five-spoke designs leaves plenty of space to get in the wheels with either the power washer or washmit. Once the winter ends in NY I plan to treat the wheels with 303 Protectant and Meguiars hybrid ceramic wax. From my experience using them on my OEM wheels, they both leave a very durable finish that lasts long and makes it harder for brake dust and dirt to cling to.

VERY TRUE now that you explain it like that with the thin spokes and cleaning. Didnt think about that until you said that it is very open to get in there and clean. Looks great. I was thinking the same about getting the ceramic wax once the winter breaks here in MD. I havent used it before but Ive heard about it and convinced now.

Black and gold is great contrast for the CX5--road racer/rally/sporty look. I would think there might be a significant mileage hit with the 22s as well as some performance loss.
Thanks thats the style I was going for "Road Rally Dad" Yeah honestly I think 20 is the sweet spot for just about any SUV. Other NON-deep lip 20s on the cx5 look like 20s. It just that with these MRRs they have a tendency to look like 18s/ 19s next to an oem which makes sense because my lip alone is about an inch or so.

You should do a shot of the car either in the rain or after a rainfall--if you can get it in front of a puddle for the reflection. It would look outstanding and would make one hell of a poster.

CX5 Calendar Idea!!!

Sounds like a plan. Post-Rain would be best and maybe I can find like a janky alleyway so I get the "Road Rally" atmosphere
