There are some nice upgrade. I had bought a set of 20mm offsets and trying to figure out what configuration I go with (15/20, 20/20 or 20/25) and I like yours being even, so I'll go 20/20. Rep point for the help there. The black contrast on your rear foglight really helps it stand out. Great job.

Thanks Daemon. The 20/20 set up will look good. When I was deciding on spacers I was originally thinking of doing the 15/20 set up but I didn't want to see any rubber at all outside the wheel well at the top of the wheel. I erred on the side of caution and went with the 15s.

It's a local shop near me in the LA area. They also sell the material online.
