The CF roundels look great, imo. Good choice, if you decide on them.

Thanks Phil, yeah the wheels are in brand new condition, not a scratch on any of them. Front plate is coming off for certain. Just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Pictures are insane! Props dude.

Yet, you know what would make those pictures even better?

Throwing on those 135's you've got sitting at home, collecting dust!

You've got until the end of this weekend....

I'm waiting for my local indy to get the tire rack shipment.

We need you to go on a picture-taking spree now.

Just know, until I get my wheels, I'm living vicariously through you, lol. I don't think I'll be taking more photos of my (pretty much stock) car, but I will probably download your photos and manipulate the crap out 'em on photoshop just for kicks.
