Stratosproject / 2008 Cobalt LT / Minneapolis, MN

Greetings and welcome to my Showoff.

First, a little about me. My name is Frank, but I go by stratosproject here in the forum. I currently live in the cold, cold land of Minny. I'm a Youth Pastor by trade, but enjoy doing just about everything else in my spare time. A fun fact about me: I have the ability to remember extremely long, alphanumeric strings. It's not an entirely useful skill, but it kills at parties.

On to my ride. I picked up my bone stock '08 LT sedan back in February, 2010 from a Sport Dealer west of the cities. She had 34K on her, and one previous owner. Here's where we've gone, mostly thanks to you guys and gals giving me the inspiration.

Thanks! Picked them up at Discount Tire. They're MB 5X's. So far they've held up pretty nice, although I kind of wish I went with the MB 7X instead.

a couple things...

love the rims they look killer, if they were a tad bigger even better but i love them

second, do you have any pictures of the led gear indicators?

third, did you notice a large difference of before and after, with the progress rear sway bar?

thanks for the reply in advance

Yeah, Discount usually runs deals on tire/wheel packages. Got mine with Falkens for under $700 after tax. But the MB's (both 5X's and 7X's) come in 15", 16", and 17". They have them in 4 and 5 bolt patterns. One thing I saw recently in addition to the silver/chrome, like I have, they also come in gunmetal; they are gorgeous! But you're right... I wish I would have gone bigger with lower profile tires. And then dropped it.

I'll snap a photo of the gear indicator tomorrow night on my way home. I wired in a LED strip and then used a blue can light gel in place of the stock film. Not as blue as I would have liked, but it is much brighter, which is the whole reason I did the job.

As far as the sway bar goes, I personally notice a difference. The car just feels tighter and more responsive. I never really liked how much the car moved around while maneuvering.
