Installed the D2 coilovers on my 2012 Kona 5.0 on 20's

The D2 kit was easy to Install and looks to be made with quality parts. It has tons of adjustability and rides so much better then stock. The wheels are Shelby CS70 in gunmetal 20x9 up front with Hankook 245/35 and 20x10 out back with Hankook 285/30. I also installed Adjustable SPC lower control arms and pan hard bar. It's about a 3" drop in the rear and 2.75 up front from stock.

Looks great and I love the CS70s. Have I been under a rock, or are the CS70s a new design? I first spotted a set on eBay last week and I think they are a great modern take on the wheels first seen on the '70 Shelbys. And they certainly suit the S197

Thanks for the replays! Yes the CS70's are new and I was told I had one of the first sets made :-) I'm just glad they fit the brembo breaks

looks good, wish they had that stance from the factory
wheels give it that concept car look, bet you won't see the same wheels going the other way

I was contemplating similar 5 spoke wheels and people were saying they'd look bad with the Mustang's small rotors.

Looks okay to me

Looks good, but it now needs bigger rotors out back. Call Steeda!
