Many on here are curious as to what this does to the efficiency... please let us know your observations.

 

Also, pictures are always welcome!

Will do! And I will post pictures. I chose a LRR tire and I am only going up 1 inch in diameter so I am hoping there is not a significant change.

Interesting that while in the box, they look gray, but on the car, they appear black.

 

Aside from that, I do like dark or black rims on a white car.  I think it makes a nice contrast.  I wanted those H style 19" rims, but there were no wheel options.  I'm still OK with the factory ones since they're unique enough.  They're just annoying to clean since they're clearcoated.

It is two colors. It is matte black with a machined tint on certain areas.

Looks good! I was planning on doing the same thing. How is the fender clearance? I know some cars look like the need to be lowered once you increase rim size +1 or +2".

It needs to be lowered, def. Im going to go with the H&R springs for the AWD model.

No, not yet. Working on getting a house so all mods are put on hold.

 

This guy did though! Hes got 20in TSWs and lowered on Eibach's.

He never commented on the ride quality though. ;-)

Just read all the posts.. Idk, I called a guy at cD3performance and he recommended the H&R's for the AWD model because those are designed to handle more weight compared to Steeda and Eibach. I know a couple of hybrid owners on 2gfusions have the H&Rs and there is no difference in ride quality.

Fusion Hybrid and Fusion 2.0 Ecoboost AWD have similar weights. Our Fusion Energi cars have 300lbs more weight... I called Eibach, H&R, and Steeda. They all told me no....

What size tires did you install?
Does the 40mm offset along with the tire width sit completely within the fender/wheel well?
