    Installed sequential LED turn signals in the side mirrors.

    Next mods are spacers for the rear wheels and possibly RallyArmor mudflaps. I bought the mudflaps, but I haven't decided on whether I want to install them or not.

    A couple of months ago, I took a couple of post install pictures of the wheel to suspension clearance with the new wheel setup, and I forgot to post them. I figured these photos might help someone who wanted to push a more aggressive wheel setup.

    For reference, this is the front clearance between the OEM suspension and 22x10.5 +30 wheels wrapped in 285/35/22 tires.




    And this is the clearance in the rear, between the OEM shock and the same wheel sizing above.




    You can see that there's room to go even wider in the rear. I think I would be comfortable going to 11.5 +35 in the rear. That would give me the same flush look I have right now (10.5 +30 with 5mm spacers, effectively 10.5 +25) while being able to run a wider tire. However, I wouldn't do that because I prefer a square setup over a staggered setup. A square setup is just easier to rotate/maintain.

    Also, here are a few unedited pics after wiping the car down with a quick detailer blend I use (Sonax BSD, P&S BeadMaker, and distilled water). Pictures were taken using my wife's Galaxy S7. Love the MGM paint!
