      New Wheels & Tires for Wife's 2014 XC70

      Hi Folks. Thought some of y'all may be interested in the wheels & tires I've installed on my Wife's XC. Decided to upgrade to 19" wheels over the stock 17". I didn't realize that the stock wheels covered so much of the rusted hub and calipers. Looks like a weekend chore. Here's a couple of shots:

      I've used PlastiKote HP-14 Aluminum Hi-Temp Paint - 11 Oz on many calipers and brake parts with great success. This paint covers, is super durable (won't peel even when power washed) and stays bright.
      Looks like this

      Looks clean. My Wife doesn't want me to paint her calipers red but she'll like the silver. The studs are a nice touch as well.
