Pics! New wheels, tires, dampers, subwoofer, tint, antenna

Tue May 15, 2012 5:58 pm

Many thanks to Nader and all you guys in the Tein coilover thread and the wheels thread for helping me get my LEAF to this point. It is a tradeoff between weight and efficiency. I have had many compliments on the LEAF. My choices were :

Enkei RP03 18"x7.5 wheels from Discount Tire (19.2 lbs)
General G-MAX AS-03 225/45/18 tires from Discount Tire (23 lbs) - $2165 for wheels and tires
1" SPACERS in the REAR + 10 wheel studs + lug nuts
1/2" SPACERS in the FRONT + 10 wheel studs + lug nuts

Tein "Street Basis" dampers bought on Nengun.com - $1522
Damper installation and alignment - $384
Window tint - $450
Removed front license plate, paint and other touch ups - $775
JL Audio amp and MicroSub subwoofer - $796
Teflon sealant and interior detail - $250
Sharkfin antenna (not shown) - $81
Total $6423

I appear to have taken about a 5% hit on efficiency (4.2 to 4.0 m/kwh) so far but we will see what happens when I stop racing it around...

Looks sharp. Tastefully done... although I'm still anxiously awaiting the Leaf that bounces up and down on its wheels, or stands up on three wheels. :)

Looks very nice.. efficiency is not that important as long as you can get to where you are going

Looks good. I assume the front and back wheels are the same but they seem to be staggered. Maybe there are spacers back there?
