2nd Photoshoot | XO Wheels | 20" Miami Matte Black

The GT finally got some new shoes. My sponsors XO Wheels hooked me up with one of their most popular styles, the Miami. It is a great looking wheel, with two degrees of concavity (really deep concave in the rear). They really show off the brakes (especially since the GT has very large rotors and calipers).

XO Wheels are lightweight, low-pressure cast rims that are known to be the best of quality. They are quite lightweight (only 26-29 lb each rim), and are very strong.

Also, the GT got a few other mods since the last shoot. The tailights have been smoked, as well as front reflector deletes (not Matte Black anymore).

Here is a photoshoot I did for them just a couple days ago.

Shoutout to Gio and Aaron of XO Wheels for making the transaction so easy and sponsoring me. Thanks guys!

P.S. The rears are ET25, so they are quite flush (look really aggressive), however there is no rubbing. :thumbsup:

FWIW, blacking out (verses a darker tint) federally required marker lights can get you into trouble. Even dimming them by tinting may be an issue if they no longer have the minimum required luminosity. It's often not possible to compensate with a bigger wattage bulb, as neither the wiring nor the housing can support it.

Other than that, looks good.

Thanks, but I honestly have no clue what you mean LOL.

If you are talking about reflector, just take two minutes to look at some of the modded F10s on the forum, a lot of them have reflector deletes (painted reflectors). Our reflectors do not light up btw.
