Here are a few more pics...

Installing my wheels 20x7.5 35+ offset Velocity v800s







I have already ordered a HID kit (5000k), chrome door handle covers, K emblems (front & rear), LOC + EQ/pre-amp so I can install my old system in it (4 Selenium mids & 2 tweeters, 2 Cadence 4 channel amps [600 wrms], 2 8" Digital Designs 1508's, 1 sundown saz-1500d [1500 wrms], custom box [2.02 cubic ft tuned to 35 Hz], optima group 31 and 0ga wiring)

I still need to order:
Fog lights & HID kit
Eibach lowering springs

WOW! Very very nice! I'm loving the Forte5's more and more. I see a lot of potential with it. AWD would have been a plus, but nonetheless great car! How's the ride with 20's?

It rides pretty good IMO, of course I only drove it home on the stock wheels and changed them out almost immediately, lol. But I will say the ride is smoother than on my previous car (2005 Dodge Stratus).

Thanks guys.

The HID's made it in yesterday as well as the LOC, I'm still waiting on the other things I ordered (badges, EQ/pre-amp, door handles)

I might be lowering it sooner than expected too, if anyone can shop the last pic to where the fender is right on the tire I would appreciate it. I just want to get a feel of how it would look.

AnGeL, that is a great looking five. You kilt the Lowering mod in MS Paint. I can imagine how long it took. My wife has a BMW and thought the Forte 5 might be her next car. Go figure.
