Thought I'd share a few pics with everyone. I added the spoiler from the Touring package, the color-keyed mudguards and tinted the windows. I now looking at swapping the tires for a set of 245/45-17 Nitto 555's.

I love this car!





Comments and heaps of praise greatly appreciated... :lol:

Very nice Tom... my second favorite color ;)

I've already ordered the painted mud guards but they haven't come in. I have the 245mm tires also and the mud flaps would help a bit. It will depend on your offset but mine fit in perfectly. The wider rubber is better imo. I wasn't sure if it would cause more torque steer but no effect... it's been great.

Thanks Smuook. I'm surprised that the Avalon doesn't come with wider tires from the factory. But the targeted demographics are for us 'old farts' and I'm sure the "Green" Michelins are great for lasting forever and low rolling resistance.

I'd prefer to not have traction control kick in when I'm on the loud pedal and I want to rip a corner - not tiptoe through... :naughty:

Nice Car Tom! Your pictures really did it for me..... I gotta get the windows tinted on mine now. My brother is looking at getting the touring model same color as yours.

Beautiful ride. Nice upgrades.
What are the "standard" sized wheels and tires?
