INCOMING - Picked up some Speedline Magnesium Saleen rims for my 2000 Explorer Limited

As I wrote in another post, I am in the middle of several upgrades to my White Pearl 2000 Ford Explorer Limited. I picked up a set of
restored pristine Speedline 1908 Rims (18" X 8.5" with the 10mm Offset required by the Explorer) which were originally installed on a Saleen XP8 Ford Explorer. The rims have been restored and professionally powder coated by an outfit out in Southern California and I''m looking to install them on my truck sometime within the next couple weeks.
The tires originally installed on the rims were the Pirelli Scorpion S/T in 255/55R18 109H - which is no longer made by Pirelli. I decided to go ahead and try the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus tires in 255/55R18 109H or 109V (haven't decided yet) This tire looks as it might be better than the Scorpion S/T - I'll update here my thoughts later on.

As some of you might have read in one of my previous threads elsewhere, I had a front and rear swaybar from another XP8 I purchased years ago. I sold the front bar since I couldn't use it on my 94 Limited and I recently had the rear bar powder coated and installed on my 2000 Limited. I also just had the rear lowering blocks from XP8 2000-0023 powder coated and read for installation when the truck is lowered while the wheels and tires are installed.
Also received my tires from Tirerack
