One minor issue with RPF1s, no center caps. I'm going to try my hand at making some from plastic. I will attempt vacuum forming some caps, stay tuned.

Yep, this what I'm talking about, a simple back hubcap that fits snugly from the inside of the wheel. No danger of coming loose. I have vacuum formed four of these and painted them black.

Nice pick up. Hard to go wrong with RPF's.

Just a forewarning, those tires are LOUD. I had the same set on my gold rpf's a while ago and I couldn't take the noise.

I hope not too loud. I generally do very little high speed freeway driving, maybe they will be better on secondary roads.

I drive 95% around town. Hardly any highway driving. They are loud tires. I couldn't stand them.

The tires are bolted on. Several test drives have not revealed any increase in noise over the OEM tires. Car drives very nicely with no rubbing even on big dips and speed bumps. Considerably more road feel and slight increase in steering effort. Very pleased!

This is true. Very crappy tire. Make sure you rotate every 2.5-3k miles. NO LONGER

Looks clean otherwise... Love RPF1s

By adding the black inserts, I feel as if something is just missing on your front bumper. I do however like the wheel choice.

The black panels don't look so black in person. The look is certainly an experiment, easily reversed. In fact, that's a basic premise of every modification I am considering, total reversibility. But for now, I'm enjoying the aggressive look.

Not the cheapest lip, but I really like the look.

The lip arrived the world's largest box. Now that's how to pack a lip.
