  3. New Rims/Tires

    New Member Introductions
    Got some new wheels and rims for our 2016 Soul Base. We went with the 17s on the rims (Helo HE894s) as a compromise between 16s and 18s, plus the rim we chose only came in 17s so that made it easy. Went with a larger profile 215/55 tire to make up the difference and not roughen ride comfort...

    Hello all, I bought some LED headlight upgrades for my wife's '12 Soul+. The install seems easy enough but the retaining clip that holds in the original light will not work with the new LEDs and the fan behind the bulb assembly. Any ideas or successful work around? TIA Sean

    Will be picking it up from the dealer tomorrow. It has a few dealer options added, tinting and floor mats and whatnot. I have a few hundred dollars left in my "new car budget". Any minor addons I should consider to make it look even more fun?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Started with the stock radio (no sub) and have purchased 4 Polk db651's for the door and installed those last weekend. Not much of an improvement over stock, these distort all over the place at about 15 on the volume scale, have to turn most of the tone controls down and P.Bass off to make it...
