    Avant's for my Avant

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Haven't posted in awhile... And don't usually do this but I'm torn between which Avant Garde wheels to get. Going with 19x9.5 lowered on Stasis Touring springs. Choice between M550's or the M510's

    Your thoughts?

    Why give me such a tough choice.. the 510s are sexy but the 550s are simplistically beautiful. Though I don't see the 510s offered in 19"


    EDIT: I lied, I was looking at F510 and M550 but hey, the F510s are still sexy. That being said, I would chose the M550 over the M510s (or the F510s if you can pull off 20s)

    550 looks easier to clean.

    You really can't go wrong with either, but there's something about having wheels that are easy to clean that turns me on. I'd go with the 550's.

    Here are some wheels on a white avant that are similar in design:

    Personally, I think 5 spokes work best with a BBK behind them, otherwise its like a super model wearing a slightly transparent dress with granny panties. Though both wheels are beautiful, I think the 510's will suit your avant very well.

    Meh, the 510's are actually going to make the avant look like a fat girl with transparent yoga pants with a g-string. The 510's have such thin and spread out spokes that you can really see everything behind the wheel. The pic I posted above is of an allroad with rotiform sna's. The sna's have wider spokes than the AG's and I remember my brakes looked tiny when I had them on my car. Luckily they went to a good home (B7RS4 owner). My new wheels do a much better job of covering up the brakes.

    I am holding you responsible for the image burned into my mind.
