watch the OEM or stock ford rims. After market rims work fine, as they do not bore them to the same size as the OEM wheels.

you an normally pick up a set of 4 chrome or black F150 steel rims for under $100 used. thats what I did, actually had 2 sets for $100 ! I know that a brand new set of 15x7 or 15x8 can be had for about $180 NEW online, just depends on your needs. (well , wants anyway) <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/butwiggle.gif" alt="" />

Body Damage is Cool
Thanks for the compliment, I have had a lot of fun with this little thing.
My wheels are 15x7 American Racing (62 series) Outlaw II wheels that I had sand blasted. I then applied 7 or 8 coats of gloss black Crylon and 4 or 5 coats of clear crylon. I did them before the the black wheel craze was started and they have held up well. On most factory ford Wheels the center hole is to small for the Kia hub so measure before you put down money on some.
My lifts are strut spacers not body lifts. I sale them for $85.00 for just the front or $170.00 for a front and rear kit plus $15.00 shipping in the U.S. for both. I can make the front to lift from 1.25 inches to 3 inches and the rear 1.5 or 2 inches.

Need a Spot
Yea i was worried about the hub hole and fitment, but i believe the ones i'm buying should fit. They have a HUGE center hole that almost reach to the lug holes... Here is what i'm working with (this is an older pic. now they are already sandblasted and cleaned and ready for paint soon):

Oh, Dennis.. will i need to modify anything else as far as suspension or steering or anything if i want to run your larger of the kits? And does it just space out the strut/shocks? And if you have pics of some installed that would be awesome <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Nothing else needs modified, Just longer rear shocks. I send instructions and all front hardware. I also send new rear bumpstops. I don't send hardware for the rear because there are 2 differant ways to install them and I let you pick. I work 10 hour days so I do my welding on Saturdays so if you are interested email me at (upyourkia@yahoo.com) for payment instructions. I check my email every day and I don't get here as often so my email works best. This Saturday is out though I have S&R training all day.

Thanks, Dennis
