Looks like one of those oversized wheels matchbox cars at Walmart, I kinda like it but the braking and handling and gas mileage and performance all just took a dive off a 10000000ft cliff.

lol

yea it handles better i guess cuz of the wider wheel and better tires. the mpg deff went down im lucky to get 240 to a taank now. as far as stopping im sure it has changed it but i cant tell a diffrence. didnt trim anythiing :) had to heat up and bend the front spring perch or whatever u wanna call it up about 2in other then that works fine i can cut the wheel all the way if i need to but i do need to do a little trimming it does rub just a tad but i just take my tyime and now am making alot more 3 point turns lol pays to be diffrent

Meh I think it looks silly. What happens when you turn and hit a bump at the same time? The panel will probably pop off.

props for doing it first but it's just too much wheel for my tastes.

I hope your streets are pothole free... :D

I'm not in love with it either, but I have to say it will look better with some modded headlights and clear side markers. Maybe just a little too bling for a stock E?

I don't get it either, but taste is a very individual thing.

As my mom used to say, "If you like that sort of thing, that's the sort of thing you'd like!"

To show how things change, I had a Mustang SVO that came with 16" wheels in place of the stock 15", and I thought that was pretty rad at the time.

And once I drifted into some "Botts Dots" near Opa Locka Airport and blew out two tires. Be careful with those 24's!

I love it. :lol: @ donkish (a donk is a 71-76 impala or caprice not a style) Only thing I would would do is add lipstick to the wheels. What size tire did you go with? 275/25/24?

Pretty cool that you went for it and you got them on there.:cool: I'm not a fan of wheels styled like that,as they look way too busy and really don't flow with the overall look of the Element.
