I recently got a blue 2008 Honda Fit and was wondering if someone could help me find cheap options to change the cosmetics and performance of the car, if I could get exact names of parts and price ranges and where to shop that would be great.

I have been searching on fit freak but i also have been checking out youtube and that has been helping out. I am however wondering what to do with the tires, personally i think the tires are too small and the all look like donuts. I don't know if there are wider tires that i could get a look at from a front/ rear perspective, i've been looking at tire websites, but they all show a side shot of the tires so i can't tell if they are donut width.

We have 205/45-16's on 7" wide wheels. I think that's a good look for the car. Wider wheels or tires and you have to massage here and there to get them to fit.

Also join the FB groups. TrueFitCrew, fitfreaks, hondafitowners, and honda fit marketplace all can be resources if looking for used parts.

Wait... aren't tires, by design, shaped like a donut?

And... wouldn't getting bigger/wider tires make it look even more obviously like a donut?
