Yeah, OEM parts are so expensive even a new set of Detroits would be close to what I paid for my used wheels. I'd just need to track down another set.

Got a new OEM headliner from the dealership for 450$. Installed myself. Not too difficult. Best quote I got to have it rewrapped was 250$ if I removed it myself.

Same happened to me. I read on here somewhere to get a hacksaw blade against the bolt and use an impact driver to spin the bolt. Cuts through in just a few seconds. Worked great.

Never been, but I would guess Harriman State Park and Bear Mountain would be good. Farther west (Port Jervis area) is Hawk's Nest. NJ/NY border around there has some good roads.

It would've been 250$ to reupholster it or 400$ for a new one from the dealer. On top of that it had a crease from b pillar to b pillar. Figured it was worth the extra to replace.

I pulled my headliner 2 days ago. Not too difficult, especially if you've removed interior trim before. If you have the time you can save a lot of money.

This is 18x8 et35 on my mkv. I believe fitment is similar, if not identical. 215/40 tires, fenders rolled. Only rubs up front if I hit a bump when turning. No issues in the back.
