Yup ... stock tires .. 16 inch chrome wheels
essentially there are 2 chineese / korean hid kits out there one in the range of 5-6k and the other 7-8 k in price fore the head lamps and this integrates the high & lows in one bulb the cheaper one comes under the Bosch name and the exp one under siemens,,, from what i have heard the range of the bosch kit(in terms of light throw) is very short, though I havent seen it personally, the headlamp "Siemens" kit I am very happy with the illumination and the range, for the accent i may get this one but lets see if some one will install the bosch and let me see the range.
