Not an issue unless you’re in the wilderness [insert pun emoji].yes 17x8 +38 offset. No rubbing at full lock. I will find out soon about off road. The biggest issue I see is I only have a 235 for a spare. I have a tire repair kit as well.
Those things are cool as he11.You can definitely feel the difference in acceleration and handling. Its definitely a much firmer ride, but I like it. The 235's were 8lbs lighter and you can feel that. The 245's look way better and I know they are a great off road tire. So far I don't think the noise is much different. I'm headed to CO and Wyoming on Wednesday so I will really get to test them out.
First one was scratched. Second one had a large hole in it. REI has been really cool about handling it, but the damaged boxes during shipping plus a few recent negative reviews on REI mean I do not want the Yakima anymore.dang they're only sending in damaged goods?!
Looks complicated, good luck. I would not mid one, but not sure I want the car taken apart to hide the wires.Started a dashcam (2-ch, hardwire with battery for parking mode) install today. Could not finish because I did not have all of the appropriate pieces apparently. Le sigh.
I started by fishing the wires that hardwire the battery to the fuse panel, and then the power cable from the battery to the camera. I had to order a longer coaxial cable for the rear channel and a low-profile fuse tap.
A couple things of notes so far:

- Any add-a-circuit/fuse taps need to be a low-profile style.
- Using add-a-circuit/fuse taps means no more coin box/fuse panel cover. I wonder if there is another way?
Good job on the cuts! Keeping them squared off on the underside is a great idea, makes things just a bit easier, and keeping the clip recess intact is an easier cut too. Plus more material left around it is always good.Got around to installing that OEM tow hitch this morning.
Also, I modified how I cut the template, and made some diagonal cuts in place of rounded edges and it works perfectly fine. I was originally calling them rough cuts and would go back to round them over but they looked fine and access to hitch plug and hitch pin did not seem impeded at all. I also did not cut into the right side square fastener clip recess. I chose to keep it intact and squared around it.
All good here, I run a 4k oil change interval with a tire rotation every other service (8k)...Had my 18k miles service yesterday even though I only have 15k miles.
