The car looks great. I too have been looking at a different tire/wheel set up and yours looks awesome. I was thinking something very similar but thinking of 235x60x17. Curious if your MPG's took a very big hit with that setup? I only have the 2.5 so a little worried on impact MPG and power.

Hard to tell as of now, only got about 1000 miles but hardly any highway miles on it yet. Looking at about 21 mpg currently, so it’s a definite possibility that I took a small hit.

Looks good! I just picked up an Onyx XT in green...Love it. I'm going to delete my chrome trim as well....

Question: What did you use for the wide curved part towards the back of the quarter window? Did you use a sheet of 3M, or just the same 2" tape, Thanks!

Thanks! Congrats on the new car! I used a sheet of 3M, it was a total pain in the ass. They make a chrome delete kit now that has the pieces precut that didn’t exist a month ago when I did mine. Definitely recommend going that route. Link is below!

Hey, thanks! I LOVE the Onyx so far. I feel like it was a good purchase! I am glad that I asked you about that bc i almost ordered the tape a few days ago. I assumed that you needed a sheet to do those wide parts and yes, it looked like a HUGE pain in the ass!

I made them an offer for that delete kit on Ebay for $20 less than asking price and they accepted. I just wanted to say thanks for that, it was clutch! I'm glad i can do it easily now, hopefully with no cutting.

What colors are your Orsini emblem overlays, Black and middle gray? it's kinda hard to tell, but is a subtle combination. Looks good.

You saved me alot of time, and alot of cursing. THANKS AGAIN.

Well Brantly79, thanks for you feedback on the MPG's. I actually just ordered those wheels today! So you have a Magnatite Gray cousin (soon). I went with different tires (Falken Wildpeak AT's in a 235), but looking forward to getting them put on. Had to order the wheels and due to work schedule I won't be able to get them till next Tues. I'll try to get pics and post them.
