    Michelin Cross Climate 2 , A/S tire

    Thanks man, Tire rack and sites like it are nice for information and price. I choose to keep it local for purchases but I do use the tire sites for info. I did check with Michelin and they do not make a OEM size for my 19" rim. They said they are expanding sizes in the future. Will decide if I'm staying on the ones I have or grabbing the Continentals as they have my size and have great reviews. Thanks again and sorry for taking your post off track a bit! Back to your post with the Michelin CrossClimate 2's... The internet is going crazy with loving these tires! Good pick for sure!

    Michelin Cross Climate 2 , A/S tire

    When I went to check I could not find the proper size for my 2017 MKZ Reserve which is P245/40WR19. I know you have a 2018, am curious what size are you running and do you have 19" rims? Glad the tires are working out for you. I looking at the Continental Extreme Contact DWS-06 Plus or the Michelin CrossClimate 2 as the dealer that I purchased the car from put new Antares Ingens A1 245/40ZR19 M&S on. They are all season so I may try this Winter with them, shame to swap them out since they are so new.

    19in Wheel Reliability

    I have only owned my 2017 with 19" rims for under 6 months but when I was looking for a used car, curb rash was extreme on most of the rims I looked at. Most of them were 19" as I wanted a Reserve. I know a lot of the damage is driver error by getting to close to curb and such but how the tire sits in on the rim and not protecting the rim edge is not ideal IMO. Directly to your question my car has original 19" stock reserve rims and they are fine except for some road rash as I described above. They seem solid!

    Funny confession .

    2017-2020 MKZ... Have to agree the front grill is eye catching and the rear end is what sold me on the car (as far as styling). I have a 2017 MKZ that I just picked up this year, so hoping to keep it for a few years and then find a nice low km 2020 MKZ on the used market in 2023/2024.

    Looks great man. Nice upgrade!
  9. Cool, never thought of it that way. Looks like black it is for the matts. Thanks all.
  10. Right on, appreciate the info. Lincoln did do a nice job of colour coordinating with the Terracotta and black interior as well as the other interiors. Think I will leave well enough alone! thanks again Thanks for the opinion, much appreciated. I have a street/strip car (under cover in last pic) that I drag race and do car shows with so I am always tinkering with practical and what looks good. As far as matts go, switching out for the seasons is just a thing for me I guess. I just picked up the MKZ (used) a couple months ago so will be using the Weathertech for sure come Winter time. If it is to crappy out I stay in, the boy's at the coffee shop wont miss me for a few days! 🙂
  11. Thanks for the comments man, much appreciated. I'm leaning towards the black mats as well. 🙂

    Out with the Old, In with the New

    Congrats on the trade up. Happy Motoring.
  13. Hi all, looking for opinions or experience on what other owners have done with interior colours and floor matts or coverings? My car is a 2017 Lincoln MKZ 2.0L AWD. Exterior colour: White Platinum Metallic-Tri-coat Interior: Terracotta coloured perforated seats. Accent Trim: Brown Swirl Walnut along with oem black carpet. I live in South Western Ontario, Canada, 2 hours east of Detroit, Michigan, so 4 season weather is what I drive in. For Fall/Winter I have the Weather Tech form fitted black plastic matts for the front and stock oem carpeted matts for the rear. I am more interested in keeping the carpets clean and dry during the inclement months so colour is not a factor. I am going to order the oem Lincoln MKZ logo floor liner tray style (Part # HP5Z-5413300-DA) for the back, even though I have never had anyone in the back (yet). 🙂 Now to the question! 🙂 I am going to purchase a new set of 4 oem Lincoln MKZ matts to use other than in the Winter time and I can either purchase a set of Black oem matts or Espresso colour (Same Part # HP5Z-5413300-CB need to choose colour). I am finding it hard to actually see the espresso colour even though I have searched on google. I think it is a dark brown and not a reddish brown colour like the terracotta. Not sure they would go well with the Terracotta seats and walnut trim with black carpet and trim. My other thought is to leave it like I got it as the floor carpeting is black and the factory did a nice job of contrasting the black and the terracotta colour. Anyone else do some colour changes inside or have the Espresso colour matts or any other style that you like in your car? Any thoughts? Included pics of driver side/passenger side and open doors view to show the mixture of Black and Terracotta colour my car has. Of course it the matts were Terracotta I would get them without a 200 word essay! 🙂 This is not a do or die situation for me and I am more making conversation on here as I am new and just looking to participate and of course looking forward to reading your opinions. Thanks for reading, Greg
