Looks like it should be in some DUB magazine feature.

But all I would ask for are different wheels, those wheels look like they belong on an import, not a domestic car.

I can't imagine that van being loaded down with what a family would bring on a weekend trip. You's be scraping the ground at that point constantly. Sure it probably has better performance but not really user friendly.

That looks cool but not so safe when you have a whole family... won't it drop the car lower?

would be nice for shows though.

Sorry to dig up an old thread but ... I think this would actually be pretty good. I mean, you could use an airbag system that'll keep it functional and safe. I like it.

There are even air systems that adjust for weight, so once people load in, you wait for it to adjust which should be a matter of seconds. But it's not something I can imagine people doing any time soon, it's going to be a while before that demographic steps into the picture.

Was looking through instagram and found this Pacifica on some 5 spoke wheels, not a bad look, still not what I'd put on my own:

I'd like to know the offset and width of those 5 spoke wheels, not a fan of the wheel design, but they are sitting in the right spot.
That information wasn't shared but if you really want to get a set, getting a good wheel and tire shop to take measurements will help in ensuring the setup you have is flush. Do you have any specific brand and model of wheel in mind?

Right now I don't have anything particular in mind. I'm just going to plastidip the wheels for now. I can't really justify purchasing a new wheel/tire set right now seeing as the oem tires are brand new michilens. I'll probably get a set next spring, so by then folks will have the fitments figured out and I'll let someone else be the Guinea pig. But for now, I'm going to gunmetal metallizer the oem set. That should make them nice for the time being.

Have you taken a look at AutoDip ? Apparently it provides a better finish and requires less.

I haven't heard of it. I've become pretty proficient at plasti dip, and I have been able to get a nice smooth finish by warming the cans and using wet coats, so it's a known product for me, but I'll check it out. I'm always interested in new stuff. Thanks for the suggestion.

Oh okay nice, and not a problem. I've always naturally sucked at plasti-dip so I kind of gave up haha

4 full cans of black plastidip and used up 3 partial, less than half cans I had laying around, mostly to add coats to the tire so it peels off later. Then I used most of three cans of metallizer. I could have made the 4 and 3 cans work, but I had the old cans and I wanted to insure the tires would strip clean. I used the dip your car release coating on the tires, and it worked great. I warm the cans in hot water and the coating lays out nice and smooth. And I've gotten pretty good at laying down wet coats, so that helps too. It's held up on my wife's car for two winters, so the stuff works well as long as the wheel is clean, and enough coats. I put down one dusting coat and at least 4 wet coats of the black, then I used 3 coats of the metallizer.
