    I would not think that you need to wax it right away, but when you have time, and yes the lower octane fuel will cause a decrease in gas mileage and a possible pinging sound. As for the wheels, I dont know.

    The 18"s are made by BBS and are very good wheels, they are also pricy so if you run the risk of damaging one of those it will run you about $3oo to replace it. if the wheel warranty is less than that then get it.


    using low octane fuel will decrease your MPG and power output but will not cause detonation or pinging in the engine.
