AFTERMARKET WHEELS ARE A WAY OF EXPRESSION. THEY HELP CHANGE THE APPEARANCE OF HE VEHICLE BY PROVIDING EYE CANDY. SOME PEOPLE LIKE PUTTING ON BIG WHEELS AS A LIKE THEY ARE COMPETING FOR ATTENTION AND SOME ARE PUT WHEELS ON FOR THE SIMPLE FACT OF LOSING WEIGHT OFF THE VEHICLE OR GETTING POINTS AT CAR SHOWS.WHEELS COME IN DIFFERENT TYPES OF SIZES,WIDTHS, COLORS, STYLES, AND ACCENTS. AS OF TODAY THE REAL TREND IN WHEELS ARE WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE ON MY CAR OR TRUCK AND AM I GOING TO LIKE THEM, WELL SOME PEOPLE JUST SLAP WHEELS ON WITH CHEAP TIRES AND SOME GO MONTHS DOING WHAT WE CALL ON THE SCENE HOMEWORK TO SEE WHAT WILL IMPROVE THE RIDE OR HELP WITH TIMES AT THE TRACK. SO WHEN YOUR LOOKING AT WHEEL FOR YOUR VEHICLE TRY FINDING THE SITES THAT HAVE THE VISUALIZER SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT YOUR VEHICLE LOOKS LIKE AND SO YOU DON'T LOOK LIKE A FOOL WITH AWKWARD WHEELS ON.

The FERRARI F40 a analog of its time yet very fast neck breaking monster on the streets and track and also easy on the eyes when glanced at, is and foremost still one of the best super cars ever built. Why do you ask? Well take for instance the the stripped out interior with carbon-fiber door panels and the blinding speed of 201mph that is made possible by the V8 twin scrolled twin turbo-chargers that boast 497hp. The F40 also featured a more in-tuned suspension that made cornering, launching and stopping much more enjoyable which means stepping out the rear end would be easy but being in control the entire time was very capable. The body of the F40 is entirely made up of carbon-fiber which is the first to be done for the streets because at the time F1 started using carbon-fiber for the race cars.
The PORSCHE 959, the first computerized car ever this car changed the game in the super car market and and came with a boat load of goodie. inside you got air-con, heat,power windows,fully adjustable suspension,and full time all wheel drive. The power plant that go the feisty PORSCHE to move was a flat 4 dohc twin turbo-charged engine, that spat out 444hp and top out at 197mph. In a race between the two the PORSCHE made haste to the FERRARI do to better acceleration and smoother gear box.
THE QUESTION IS AND YOU HAVE TO ASK YOUR SELF THIS IS WHICH ONE WOULD YOU DRIVE?????
We have today two hot hatches not from the U.S.A but from the euro side of the scene.
FIRST UP THE (CITROEN DS3 R)
The CITROEN DS3 R is Citroen's premiere little racer coming with a sporty two tone color livery. At which coming in 11 different color for the two tone livery as in you main body color and your trim color. Also you have the choice of changing the the roof with 7 different graphics to stand out, which is pretty cool. on the inside the little tike comes with sat-nave,power everything except (roof) and racing like seats with still room to seat in the back.Performance wise the DS3 is equipped with a 1.8L turbocharged motor and a 5-speed trans that allows 204 brake hp.Handling is superb because of its small yet long narrow body and wide wheel base taking turns are not a problem due to the turbo kick in upon acceleration.
NEXT UP THE FIAT ABARTH500 (ESSENCE)
The FIAT ABARTH 500 is just as customizable as the Citroen and the mini cooper. As the buyer your able to purchase many things starting with the outside. Four colors to chase from (Negro,Bianca,Rosso,Grigio) and three different wheels to choose from that compliment the ABARTH 500 body lines. Inside you get to chose from three different seat liveries (Negro leather,Rosso leather,Negro cloth) each of which comes with racing stripes to accent the racing heart of the 500. When driving the acceleration is crisp and smooth and shifting is no prob because the ABARTH comes with a shift up notification screen that reveals itself when time to shift. Stereo is outstanding with comign with 6 peakers for surround sound 6 speakers!!!!. Now for what is powering this thing a 1.6L 16valve turbo-charged inline four engine with a multi-air putting down 160 brake hp.Handling is well balanced with the track tuned street approved suspension so taking corners and launching won't be a problem.

FERRARI FXX yes the FXX this nifty little tyrant is all go and all show. Sporting a body similar to the infamous FERRAI ENZO this one is as well all carbon fiber but the handling is tighter and the acceleration is massive and very responsive. The FXX is sporting the the same 1 lug F1 style centric ring, but judging by the pic above the body is more sculpted for racing with the F1 style steering wheel and pedal's and stripped down interior. Now for the weird news this car goes for $2.5million and the only way you can get the car to drive it is by informing FERRARI that you want it days before a race event but when the sun goes down the question is (Do you get to take the car home???????) answer to that question is NO!!!!!!!!!!!!! this machine is so fast so loud that the car is actually banned from race tracks. Yes that's rite banned from race tracks it's so loud that it shatters sound decimals an out runs anything you put up against it even its own little sister the ENZO.

) THIS CAR HAS BEEN BUILT TO COMPETE WITH THE BIG BOYS OF RACING OVER IN THE UK BUT UNFORTUNATELY THE THIS PARTICULAR ZONDA ISN'T ALOUD ON ANY RACE COURSE IN THE WORLD. WHY? WELL BECAUSE THIS ZONDA IS SO LOUD IS SURPASSES THE SOUND DECIMALS THAT ARE PERMITTED AND YES THIS MAY SEEM A LITTLE WEIRD BUT PAGANI HAS ONLY MADE ONE OF THESE CARS. BUT IN FACT HAVE MADE 10 OTHER VERSIONS OF THIS CAR BUT OF COURSE ARE STREET LEGAL 5 OF WHICH ARE HARD-TOPS AND 5 OF WHICH ARE CONVERTIBLES THE DOWN FALL OF THE 10 THAT ARE STREET LEGAL IS THAT LESS POWER AND NO TRACK TIRES. THE PAGANI ZONDA R COMES WITH A V8 WITH 700HP AND CAN REACH 0-60MPH IN 3secs LITERALLY AND STOP ON A DIME THANK TO ITS CARBON BRAKES. AS FOR THE STREET VERSION TAKING IT TO THE TRACK YOU MITE BE A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED WITH THE TIRE GRIP AS TO WERE THE REAR OF THE CAR LIKES TO STEP OUT AND THE SPEED IS NOT EAR BLOWING. ANOTHER BIG DIFFERENCE IS THE BODY WITH THE (R-MODEL) YOU HAVE THE FULL BLOWN CARBON-FIBER BODY AND FOR THE STREET VERSIONS A PAINTED BODY THAT COMES IN ABOUT I'D SAY 4 FOUR COLORS.

Hey everyone we just recently did oil changes on our 2 cars, a 1997 VOLKSWAGON GOLF JAZZ 2.0L & a 1996 NISSAN MAXIMA 3.0L both of have high miles on them with manuals. Now we normally use castrol synblend 5w-30 but we just switched to royal purple and I can honestly say that the switch was a good one. Morning start-ups to acceleration pulls are smoother and more accurate and also better fuel delivery as well, yea its alil expensive but the switch is well worth it.
