oh yeah....one of the wheels is a bit beat up, but from what i heard, it doesnt leak any air. so i am good with that.





Here they are with 225/45-17, I know i need a drop, will probably get H&R race springs

hurry with the mounting. That wheel is very similar to my BBS's. I also had those same wheels on a Corrado years ago. I have a soft spot for that style lol.

i gotta wait for djwimbo to send me the hubcentric and bolts. he forgot to ship it with the wheels.

Yea, that was my bad.

Weird thing about that was the two boxes I shipped them in had two different shipping weights, by >1lb.

They are a bit beat up, glad you painted them first though. They do look good.

Wheni had them balanced, they guy was like "these wheels are beat up!!!!!" but they will do fine. I can barely feel any vibrations or disconforts while driving with them on.
