....with the modding virus! I can't stop. I have some ideas for my car and I want to hear what you guys think. First of all, ive attached some photos of how my car looks at the moment. 2015 performance blue with standard wheels. You'll notice I have some red caliper covers on there. I'm thinking of taking them off and painting my calipers with this http://www.stage3motorsports.com/CB...ke-Caliper-Paint-System-Ford-Spirit-Blue.html

You'll notice my exhaust tips are chrome. Thinking of replacing them with this http://www.cjponyparts.com/mbrp-exhaust-tip-4-black-pair-focus-st-2013-2016/p/EXT21/

Also, thinking of putting on these wheels

With these center caps

And replacing the Ford ovals with these

I've also already ordered tints for the fog lights, mirror turn signals, rear deflectors, and spoiler light. I also ordered some inlays for the ST badges in performance blue, and am planning on getting my windows tinted soon.

My biggest question has to do with the wheels. Of course right now I have stock wheels. With the wheels I want, would I need spacers? And would I experience any kind of rubbing? Sorry I'm kind of clueless when it comes to this stuff

Anyways, what do you guys think of my plan? Think it will look good? I'm open to suggestions and ideas. If you've read all of this, your awesome. Thanks!

Car looks great and mods look awesome. Not a fan of the caliper covers though; I support your idea to ditch them and paint the OEMs...

Thanks for the replies guys! After some more thinking, I think I will hold off on the black exhaust tips and ford ovals for now. I'm just not sure if I will like the look. I can think of several cars that look great with black wheels and chrome exhaust tips. I figure if I feel like either of these things need to be added, they can be. If I like my car without them, then that works too. Any other thoughts on the wheels? Really curious as to whether I would need spacers and if I would experience any rubbing. Thanks!

Another thought I've had is to still take off the caliper covers, but paint the calipers red instead of blue, that way I can keep the red ST badge and such

In regards to the wheels, the offset is 40 and I'm not sure what the stock offset is but I don't believe that you would need spacers or whatever.
Especially since you have a stock calipers. While the wheels are nice, they are about the same weight as the stock ones but if you don't care about that, just go for it, they're cheap.
