My wife managed to destroy 2 tires, crack one wheel and bend another. $850 later and my car is back on the road. Fortunately, I had bought the donut spare which allowed me to get around.
Dang that sucks badly. I would have just said screw it and put aftermarket wheels and tires lol

Installed a little Intake on Bloo today. Nothing too fancy, will need to buy a tube when I get the money. So far I love it, makes a nice growl when you get on it. We will see if my mileage gets any better in a few weeks.
Looks great! I did this for awhile on my Optima, it worked for me for a short time but the stock tubing couldnt handle the weight of the cone filter eventually :(

Thanks! Yeah thats what I am kind of figuring will happen with this. I am going to need to tube it soon, main reaso why I left the bottom piece of the stock intake in, gives the new filter something to rest on.

Got pulled over speeding 70mph on a 45mph street. Brake light was out,lug nut broken on rim, both sun visor mirrors fell out, rear view mirror keeps falling off.

Hot off with a warning.

P.s. was racing against a friend who drives a crv. He thinks he can out run me. I beat him eveytime. Ha ha ha.

I bought wheels and tires for my koup. waiting for tirestickers to arrive before I put everything on my car.

I got white 18x8 Sparco Assetto Gara's on 225/40ZR18 Falken Avenis.

Next mod will be brakes and then I'll have to figure out something for the engine :/

Changed the brake, tail and backup bulbs to LED's. Fail of the day, pulling the socket for one of the backup lights and the bulb pulled out and stayed in the housing. Had to remove the whole assembly and do a little shaking to get the bulb to fall out lol.

Added Redline Tuning hood struts to my 2011 SX hatch and my daughters 2013 SX Koup.
80070

I know these are old news for most 1st gen owners but Redline also makes kits for 2nd gens too. I wonder if they are looking for 3rd gen owners to built a kit because the website doesn't list a kit for the 3rd gen.

These kits are so nice. As soon as I was done installing them I ordered a kit for my sons 2006 Spectra SX sedan and for my other daughters 2012 Veloster.

I’d like to add a set to my wife’s 2011 Tucson but they don’t make a kit for that car. However, the 2nd gen Forte kit looks like it could work on the Tucson. Is there any 2nd gen Forte owner that’s has this kit? I’d like to get some measurements to see if it would fit my Tucson.
