Hey boys and girls,
So finally after 3 months i got up off my lazy bum and decided to take some pics of my wheels. My fiance just purchased a 07 CX-7 on Thu and a few pics of that is also included. The wheels are 20" Venti's and the tires are Falkens.

Wow...there's wet looking and then there's what those tires look like...wetter than wet....looks like a layer of gel over them or something.

What's the little black thing at the center top of your windshield...XM radio antenna? Did you run the wire through to it?

The wheels are Venti 20x9 and the tires are 255/45/20 Falken FK452's.. i paid $1800 for them at a store in Lodi,NJ. I also had the calipers painted black. i was thinking of red but with my truck being green the red calipers probably would have made it look like a christmas tree ornament.

sorry about the size of some of the images because i apparently did not upload them properly on to imageshack. I have one other pic with the CX-7 and my tribeca side by side, the rest of the pics are mostly of the CX-7 interior..

As for the tires looking wet.... i had just washed the car that morning and the wetness is from the tire dressing that the car wash uses. Yes the antenna on top of the roof is the XM antenna, this is wired thru the top of the windshield i think...if you go under my gallery you will see the XM Roady XT installed.

could you have gone wider? 45 series tires seem to be a bit thin. (i can fit 255's on my STI) i think the wheels look fine, just looks a bit small, maybe some beefer tires would help.

you are very much on the spot with this... i did want to go wider but the guy i bought the wheels from said i could but also warned against it. The tires are wide but not as wide as i would liked for them to be... I was thinking about getting some spacers installed.... what do you think?

not sure. see how much clearance you have so far. STI is blessed w/ a huge wheel well, so we are able to fit 255 series tires (i have 245/40/18 now), not sure on the B9. I think 20's are perfect for the B9, now if it can fit a beefy tire, that would be perfect.

I think the clearance should be fine... looks like i have plenty of room to spare... especially in the front... wondering if there are any side effects to adding spacers?
