Hi Folks

New to the forums, I have a 2011 Saab 9-4x Aero XWD (SRX Twin) and I am looking to do some modifications to the car

I will be painting my wheels in upcoming weeks (after new tires are in installed) and here is a Mockup of how the car will look

Any Recommendation on Tires (20" Wheels) and plus sizing etc? What are most of the folks running here ?

Also I found a few LED threads but wondering if there is a vendor that everyone uses and a master list for the LED swap out, I hate the yellow lights in the car


Lastly for now I see no one has switched over to stainless steel lines with some Motul RBF600 Fluid so far and I was looking to make the convert using the following lines

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Goodridge-G-Stop-SS-Brake-Line-Kit-for-2004-09-Cadillac-SRX-Front-Rear-14176-/330816817587?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item4d063809b3&vxp=mtr

Most of the time the previous model year should fit (I know it does with a few other cars) so just wondering if anyone knows any VAST differences with the brake lines between the 09 and 10 despite the motor difference

BTW

Installed the weather tech Digital Fit mats and the K&N Filter on the 2.8L V6 and they both work brilliantly. Already solved a Check Engine Light issue as this is the same motor as my previous car (2008 Saab TurboX)

I've swapped brake lines on other cars and had an impact, but with my 12 srx the brakes are so tight as they are , I have no desire to swap those hoses....well at least for a long while.

Are you doing it for better braking or just for looks to match the new set of wheels ?

For sure better braking, the current set stills feel a bit spongy even after a full bleed

Redoing the wheels soon, anyone with experience on plus sizing the tire from 235 to a 255 etc ?

Time to upgrade brakes looking for better pads rotors (found a EBC Stage 2 set) also looking for lines.

Bumpo looks like these folks have some kits
