Nice pics but those tires look a bit skinny. Are they the right size? Can't imagine that being very comfortable.
Tires are 205/40 16 (OEM spec overall diameter)
wheels are 16x7 et 40. Im gonna try 5mm spacers for a better look.

Nice pics Robb. Your car is always spotless like you've got a wax fairy that does your car every night. :lol:

The closest size to stock for 16's is actually 215/40-16. 205/40's are closer than 205/45's though.

Overall Diameter:
185/60-14 = 22.74 inches
215/40-16 = 22.77 +.03
205/40-16 = 22.46 -.28
205/45-16 = 23.26 +.52

As for the spacers, I don't think 5mm would hurt. I understand how larger spacers would suck, but 5mm can't be that much extra stress on the hubs.

Use a Porter cable or Makita polisher, with G10 liquid Farecla polish (not found in stores), once the paint is clean, then put a layer of wax on it, to protect the paint and bring out the gloss. keep it looking good with meguirs quick detail spray.I do this 1-2 times a year.

I don't think I would even bother with it for 2 tenths of an inch...it can't make enough of a difference to be worth the cost, work, and chance of them causing problems.
