You remind me of my Jeep

Like an enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in chinchilla, LBM will bring you in and out of consciousness with alternating waves of outer space-like freshness and pharaonic opulence. You can think of the Paris based design firm like a renaissance man from the future, whose inspirations age timeless, yet capture and astound those in the present.

You remind me of my Jeep

(lol)

Finally got around to getting the all seasons back on the Escape. Looks alright I think?

They are 1/2" wider and more agrressive ET so they're just under an inch pokier than the steelies. Despite the increased dimensions there is MAYBE 1mm from the pad retainer to the back of the wheel... whew. These feel much lighter too so I'm hoping for a slight improvement in MPGs... I typically average around 29 so I'd love to crest 30 :)

Hard to tell from the pic but the insets are gold (from a GC Limited), and the clear coat is peeling in big plates. I was planning on Plastidipping them black but haven't yet due to crazy local prices on the cans. Now that they're on I'm not certain I'll bother. Thoughts?

The gold crest and gold inset go well together.

I completely forgot I made this thread.

DW: Yup! They had newborn calves that were adorable.
Randy: Thanks- it is however woodgrain. I do have a couple gold ones though...

So it turns out the OEM steelies had tire pressure sensors :lol:... news to me. When I turn it on now the TPMS dummy light flashes for 5 seconds and then goes out... big whoop.
