The 2008 Tribeca comes in it if I recall correctly. Mine may not be 100.00% identical to the shade of OEM.

I can live with that

My previous 17" sub-zeros got the SNOT beat out of them for 4 years straight, including a HPDE and ~20 autocrosses. I simply could not justify $2000 to get an ideal wheel of my choice, so I went with a 2nd round of Sub-zeros. They're very played out, I know. I don't plan on changing them though.

The sidemarkers are easy enough to consider.

Thanks for checking it out everyone, and thanks for the comments.

I think the rota formula mesh would be killer on your ride.

I don't do gold wheels

The EDM light conversion to HID was done by someone else. I bought them used.
