    Haven't noticed any yet But then I only have just over 100 km on it. We're still getting 'acquainted'. Just found out the DRL's are on the fog lamps.

    Clay bar treatment smooth now and paint seems to be popping more. Strongly recommend if you have any rough spots.

    I have not done anything to my explorer yet because I am waiting for Ford to make it and ship it. I would like to do stuff to it when it comes. I am wondering if anyone has ever seen the tailgate blacked out where it curves in (where the license plate is attached)? I have a Mustang that I bought a black trunk panel and it looks really cool. I am looking for the same type of thing for my Explorer sport. Has anyone ever seen one?

    Post 31 above should give you some sort of an idea of what it may look like.

    Any problems to mount this size? Or just do it?

    Since you haven't added the model of your Explorer to your profile, I don't know which one you have so I don't know what tire size you currently have. If you have an XLT with 245/60R18 tires, the ones you are asking about fall within the diameter specs with only a 0.95% difference.

    Hi Peter

    2011 limited. I don't think it makes any sense if XLT or limited.

    Cheers
