Alpine White: The Gold Standard

Just a sneak peek. Had to replace the Privats with something custom after I cracked one through and realized that my specific model has been discontinued for years.

New pics next week sometime when the rubber gets in.

Womp.

More importantly and noticeably though I switched to a square set up and am now running 265/30s all around. It's a drastic difference from the old staggered 245/35 and 275/30.

They're reps if you are gonna ask. Need to switch up the center caps soon though. But they came with.

Thanks to https://www.sonicms.net/ for their great service!

Probably a million and a half dollars considering they're 24k gold.

They look very nice indeed for replicas, OP.

Washed. Claybarred and waxed.

I need to get an actual camera at some point. Phone cams are only good for capturing surprise newdz and drunken debauchery.

Thanks! They're actually black underneath too. Hoping to get some pro pics done soon enough but still need to fix a few things that would be visibly noticeable (other than the center caps of course).
