A customer of ours recently purchased a new 2010 Ford Fusion. He loves it. But, he wanted to give it a little personality of its own.

So, the first thing he did was pick out some cool wheels. I have to admit, even though I haven’t been a big fan of black wheels, these are pretty cool. The wheel is made by Motegi and they are called MR116. It is a 18 inch wheel and it is 8 inch wide. I think the red stripe accents it well. Then we mated the wheels with General Exclaim UHP tires.

At the same time we installed H&R Sport Springs that lower the car 1.2 inches in the front and 1.5 inches in the rear. H&R Sport Springs provide a lower center of gravity and reduce body roll for better handling. The progressive spring rate design provides superb ride quality and comfort. A lower wind resistance signature will make the vehicle more streamlined and improve gas mileage. If you are only looking to improve one part of your vehicle’s suspension, you cannot go wrong with installing sport springs.

Looks pretty sharp sitting lower and sporting some new wheels and tires.

It is amazing what a set of springs with a new set of wheels and tires will do to the already great handling.
